THE correct term is thrust washer. and yes that would help.Btw, I seem to have an extra washer. According to the Toro parts diagram, one goes between the top of the reverse disc shaft and the bearing. The second between the bearing and the spacer. I've got a third, maybe between the spacer and the roll pin or as the second between the bearing and spacer. There's certainly enough room and may "tighten" things up a bit.??
Ha, you beat me to it.DID you getter done???????????
you will have to play with the eye bolt for that issue.Ha, you beat me to it.
Yes, all back together and tight as a drum, even the slight wobble is gone . Thanks again for your input.
The one thing that the service manual omits is how tight the nut on the eye bolt should be (on the hex shaft with drive wheel). I have to take the bottom cover off again anyway because the machine is going faster in 2nd gear than it is in 3rd. My feeling is that the eye bolt nut tightness is affecting this, or the traction disc is slipping??
I don't have it particularly tight because of the 2 spring washers. Plus, the original setting wasn't accurate because someone had previously disassembled it.
Lastly, the engine runs rough at slow speeds and no matter of fiddling with
the mixture screw smooths it out. I am going to change the spark plug and get some fresh gas and give it another gther than that, seems all is in good shape.
Thanks motorhead. Is there a particular rebuild kit that you can recommend?Hi rapscallion,
I have a 38050 as well. The cure for the rough low idle is a carb clean and rebuild. Most likely your idle circuit is fouled a bit behind the jet screw. Also the bowl nut behind the high speed jet has very small holes between its threads that can become clogged. A good cleaning and replacement of your bowl gasket, float needle and seat should make her purr. MH
it would be more prudent to change over to HEI system than sticking with the status quo.MH, I've looked at the Toro Magneto drawings (https://lookup3.toro.com/partdex/index.cfm?xCaller=Toro&lang=us_en) for my SN (1981) and I see the condenser in the Magneto drawing, but not the points.
Nothing in the Engine drawing either ??
