Does this mean you've got the other four (higher priority) items done on your list? :lol:

Seriously, now that you can attach photos, give us some updates along the way. We'd like to see what you're doing... :coffee:

That photo was copied from the Craigs List ad. I can't attach my photos. I'm electronically challenged.
2 projects in the garage, mostly done. Too cold out there to work, so I'm in the basement, where I can work with one arm, hug the wood stove with the other.

Toro update..... Trying to start the engine, just bypassing the wiring and fuel system, using carb cleaner or starting fluid, to see if I can get even a 2 minute run, out of it. Has good compression. Wasn't getting a spark. Changed the coil, points and condenser, and now get a good spark. Acts like it's out oif time. Only timing adjustment, is point gap. Adjusting them, doesn't make much difference. Someone suggested flywheel key. It's hydrostatic, so I doubt that the engine received enough stress to bend the flywheel key. 14 HP Kohler engine, 1970's era. Any suggestions would be welcome. It's stressing my limited sanity!

well have you checked the spark timing while the engine is on the compression stroke? like you know, plug out and your finger in the hole? one thing that has been an issue for me before is just a chunk of carbon, blocked valve from closing, so no compression. I would pull the head n inspect things.

been working on my Toro ParkMaster. got a replacement transmission and got it to fire but carb is still messed up, wish you luck with your Toro, hope to see it running around soon!

better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...( YES this includes CUBS! )

Seems to be a compression release issue.. Head is off, valves open and close properly. No exhaust valve movement, to release compression. I think the compression release has a broken tab. Have another camshaft on order. Didn't want to get that far into the engine, but, it won't run the way it is. My guess is that it wouldn't start, and was given up for dead.
