MANUAL
_ 824 AND 1028 POWER SHIFT SNOWTHROWERS
The 824 and 1028 POWER SHIFT SNOWTHROWERS meet or exceed the Outdoor Power Equipment
Institute’s safety standards for snowthrowers; thus, Toro proudly displays the OPEI safety seal. To
assure maximum safety, optimum performance, and to gain knowledge of the product, it is essential
that you or any other operator of the snowthrower read and understand the contents of this manual
before the engine is ever started. Pay particular attention to the safety alert symbol AA which means
CAUTION, WARNING OR DANGER — “personal safety instruction.” Read and understand the instruc-
tion because it has to do with safety. Failure to comply with instruction may result in personal injury.
The following instructions are comparable to the In-
structions For Safe Snowthrowing adopted by the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The
snowthrower is designed and tested to offer reason-
ably safe service; however, failure to comply with the
following instructions MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL
INJURY.
WARNING: Engine exhaust contains carbon monox-
ide which is an odorless, deadly poison. Carbon
monoxide is also known to the State of California to
cause birth defects. Do not run engine indoors or in
an enclosed area.
BEFORE OPERATING
1. Read and understand the contents of this man-
ual before operating the snowthrower. Become famil-
iar with all controls and know how to stop the engine
quickly.
2. Keep everyone, especially children and pets,
away from snowthrower and area of operation.
Never allow children to operate the snowthrower.
Adults should operate the snowthrower only after
reading this manual.
3. Inspect area thoroughly where snowthrower will
be used. Remove doormats, sleds, boards, sticks,
Wire, and any other foreign objects which might be
picked up and thrown by the snowthrower.
4. Keep all shields and safety devices in place. If a
shield, safety device or decal is illegible, damaged or
lost, repair or replace it before beginning operation.
Also, tighten any loose nuts, bolts or screws.
5. Wear adequate winter clothing and rubber boots
that will ensure proper footing on slippery surfaces.
Do not wear loose fitting clothing that could possibly
get caught in moving parts.
6. Adjust both skids so auger housing clears gravel
or crushed rock surfaces.
7. Before starting the engine, move speed shift
control to N (neutral) and ensure that auger/impeller
control and traction drive control are in disengaged
position.
8. Always use a grounded, three wire plug and
cord to start snowthrower equipped with an electric
starter. Extension cord must be connected to a prop-
erly grounded outlet.
9. Fill fuel tank with gasoline before starting the en-
gine. Avoid spilling any gasoline. Because gasoline
is highly flammable, handle it carefully. DO NOT
SMOKE WHILE HANDLING GASOLINE.
A. Use an approved gasoline container.
B. Fill fuel tank outdoors, not indoors. NEVER ADD
FUEL TO AN ENGINE THAT IS RUNNING OR
HOT. Engine must be cool to reduce potential fire
hazard.
C. Open doors if engine will be started in the garage
because exhaust fumes are dangerous and could
possibly be deadly. Do not run engine indoors.
D. Wipe up any spilled gasoline. Reinstall gasoline
container cap and snowthrower fuel tank cap se-
curely before starting the engine.
WHILE OPERATING
10. ROTATING IMPELLER OR AUGER CAN CUT
OFF OR INJURE FINGERS OR HANDS. STAY BE-
HIND THE HANDLES AND AWAY FROM DIS-
CHARGE OPENING WHILE OPERATING THE
SNOWTHROWER. KEEP FACE, HANDS, FEET,
AND ANY OTHER PART OF YOUR BODY OR
CLOTHING AWAY FROM CONCEALED, MOVING
OR ROTATING PARTS.

A\ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
11. BEFORE ADJUSTING, CLEANING, REPAIRING,
AND INSPECTING THE SNOWTHROWER, AND
BEFORE UNCLOGGING THE DISCHARGE CHUTE,
SHUT ENGINE OFF AND WAIT FOR ALL MOVING
PARTS TO STOP. ALSO, PULL WIRE OFF SPARK
PLUG AND KEEP WIRE AWAY FROM THE PLUG
TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL STARTING. USE A
STICK, NOT YOUR HAND, TO REMOVE OB-
TRUCTIONS FROM DISCHARGE CHUTE.
12. Before leaving the operator's position (behind
handles), rotate ignition key to OFF and wait for all
moving parts to stop. Remove key from switch if
snowthrower will be left unattended.
13. Allow engine to warm up outdoors before
clearing snow.
14. Operate the snowthrower only when there is
good visibility or light. Always maintain secure
footing and balance and keep a firm grip on the
handles, especially when operating in reverse.
Walk; never run.
15. Be attentive when using the snowthrower, and
stay alert for holes in the terrain and other hidden
hazards. Be careful when clearing snow from a
gravel drive because stones could be picked up
and thrown if skids are not adjusted so auger
housing clears all rocks.
16. Do not make any adjustments while the engine
is running.
17. Never direct discharge of snow or operate
snowthrower near bystanders, glass enclosures,
automobiles and trucks, window wells or a drop-
off without proper adjustment of the snow chute
and deflector. |
18. Clear snow from slopes by going up and
down, never across the face. Use caution when
changing directions. Use lower gear and rear
wheel position when operating on slopes. Never
clear snow from steep slopes.
19. Do not overload the snowthrower by clearing
snow at too fast a rate.
20. DO NOT USE SNOWTHROWER ON A ROOF.
21. If a foreign object is hit or snowthrower vi-
brates abnormally, stop engine by turning key to
OFF and wait for all moving parts to stop. Pull
wire off spark plug and check snowthrower imme-
diately for possible damage, an obstruction or
loose parts. Vibration is generally a sign of
trouble. Repair any damage before starting engine
and operating snowthrower again.
22. Do not touch engine while it is running or soon
after it is stopped because the engine will be hot
enough to cause a burn. Do not add oil or check
oil level in crankcase when engine is running.
23. Never operate snowthrower at high transport
speeds on slippery surfaces. Use care when back-
ing.
MAINTAINING SNOWTHROWER
24. Perform only those maintenance instructions
described in this manual. Shut engine off before
performing any maintenance service or adjust-
ment. Additionally, pull wire off spark plug and
keep wire away from plug to prevent accidental
starting. If major repairs are ever needed, contact
your local Authorized TORO Service Dealer for as-
sistance.
25. Keep snowthrower in safe operating condition
by keeping nuts, bolts, and screws tight. Check
engine mounting bolts frequently to ensure they
are tight.
26. Do not overspeed the engine by changing gov-
ernor settings. Recommended maximum engine
speed is 3500 rpm. To ensure safety and accu-
racy, check maximum engine speed (3500 rpm)
with a tachometer.
27. Allow engine to cool before storing in an en-
closure such as a garage or storage shed. NEVER
STORE SNOWTHROWER IN HOUSE (LIVING
AREA) OR BASEMENT BECAUSE GASOLINE AND
FUMES ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE, EXPLOSIVE,
AND DANGEROUS IF INHALED. Do not store
snowthrower near any open flame or where gaso-
line fumes may be ignited by a spark.
28. When storing the snowthrower for an extended
time—off season storage or 30 days—drain gaso-
line from fuel tank to prevent a potential hazard.
Store gasoline in a safety-approved red metal
container. Remove key from ignition switch when
storing snowthrower. Store key in a memorable
place.
29. At the time of manufacture, the snowthrower
conformed with or exceeded OPEI safety standards
in effect for snowthrowers. Therefore, to ensure
best performance and safety, purchase genuine
TORO replacement parts and accessories to keep
the TORO all TORO. NEVER USE “WILL FIT” RE-
PLACEMENT PARTS AND ACCESSORIES. The
TORO logo assures genuineness.
30. For safety reasons, use only those accesso-
ries and attachments recommended by The TORO
Company to ensure continued safety certification
of the product. Using unapproved accessories and
attachments could contribute to a potential haz-
ard.

BEFORE OPERATING
FILL CRANKCASE WITH OIL (Fig. 11)
The engine is shipped from the factory without oil in
the crankcase. Therefore, before starting the engine,
oil must be added to the crankcase.
IMPORTANT: Check level of oil every 5 operating
hours or each time unit is used. Initially, change
oil after the first 2 hours of operation; thereafter,
under normal conditions, change oil after every
25 hours of operation or annually, whichever
comes first.
1. Move unit to a level surface to ensure an accu-
rate oil level reading.
2. Clean area around dipstick to prevent foreign
matter from entering filler hole when dipstick is re-
moved.
3. Remove dipstick from crankcase.
4. Slowly pour SAE 5W-30 or SAE 10 oil into the
filler hole, using the filler chart below. The engine
uses any high-quality detergent oil having the
American Petroleum Institute (API) “service classifi-
cation*—SE, SF or SG.
Note: Dipstick must be fully installed to ensure accu-
rate gauging of oil level. DO NOT OVERFILL.

DANGER: Because gasoline is flammable, caution must be used when storing or handling it. Do
not fill fuel tank while engine is running, hot, or when unit is in an enclosed area. Keep away
from open flame and electrical spark. DO NOT SMOKE while filling the fuel tank to prevent the
possibility of an explosion. Always fill fuel tank outside and wipe up any spilled gasoline before
starting engine. Use a funnel or spout to prevent spilling gasoline. Do not fill tank full. Fill fuel
tank to about 1/4 ” to 1/2” (6 to 13 mm) from the top of the tank, not into the filler neck. This
Store gasoline in a clean, approved container and keep the cap in place on the container. Keep
gasoline in a cool, well-ventilated place—never in the house. To assure volatility, do not buy more
than a 30 day supply of gasoline. Gasoline is a fuel for internal combustion engines. Therefore,
do not use it for any other purpose. Since many children like the smell of gasoline, keep it out of
their reach because the fumes are explosive and dangerous to inhale.
FILL FUEL TANK WITH GASOLINE
THE TORO COMPANY STRONGLY RECOMMENDS
THE USE OF CLEAN, FRESH UNLEADED REGULAR
GASOLINE IN TORO GASOLINE POWERED PROD-
UCTS. UNLEADED GASOLINE BURNS CLEANER,
EXTENDS ENGINE LIFE, AND PROMOTES GOOD
STARTING BY REDUCING THE BUILDUP OF COM-
BUSTION CHAMBER DEPOSITS. LEADED GASOLINE
CAN BE USED IF UNLEADED IS NOT AVAILABLE.
IMPORTANT: NEVER USE METHANOL, GASOLINE
CONTAINING METHANOL, GASOHOL CONTAIN-
ING MORE THAN 10% ETHANOL, PREMIUM
GASOLINE, OR WHITE GAS BECAUSE ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM DAMAGE COULD RESULT.
Toro also recommends that Toro Stabilizer/Condi-
tioner be used regularly in all Toro gasoline pow-
ered products during operation and storage sea-
sons. Toro Stabilizer/Conditioner cleans the engine
during operation and prevents gum-like varnish
deposits from forming in the engine during periods
of storage.
DO NOT USE FUEL ADDITIVES OTHER THAN
THOSE MANUFACTURED FOR FUEL STABILIZA-
TION DURING STORAGE SUCH AS TORO'S STA-
BILIZER/CONDITIONER OR A SIMILAR PRODUCT.
TORO'S STABILIZER/CONDITIONER IS A PETRO-
LEUM DISTILLATE BASED CONDITIONER/STABI-
LIZER. TORO DOES NOT RECOMMEND STABILIZ-
ERS WITH AN ALCOHOL BASE SUCH AS ETHA-
NOL, METHANOL OR ISOPROPYL. ADDITIVES
SHOULD NOT BE USED TO TRY TO ENHANCE
THE POWER OR PERFORMANCE OF MACHINE.
1. Clean area around the fuel tank cap (Fig. 11).
Remove cap from fuel tank. Using unleaded, regu-
lar gasoline, fill tank to within 1/4” to 1/2”
(6 to 13 mm) from the top of the tank, not into
the filler neck. This space is for expansion of fuel.
Do not fill tank full. Reinstall fuel tank cap.
Fuel tank capacity is 4 quarts.
CONTROLS
Auger/Impeller Control (Fig. 12) —Control has two
positions: ENGAGE and DISENGAGE. To engage
both auger and impeller, compress lever against
right handle grip. To disengage, release lever.
Traction Drive Control (Fig. 12)—To engage trac-
tion (wheel drive) or activate power shift system,
lever must be compressed against left handle
grip. To stop traction, release lever.
Speed Shift Control (Fig. 12)—The control has a
neutral position, four speeds forward and two re-
verse, and also controls power shifting of wheels.
To select speeds, move shift control to desired
position.
Note: When shifting gears into or out of reverse or
when using the Power Shift feature, the traction
drive control must be released. On-the-go shifting
may be accomplished between any of the forward
speeds without releasing the traction drive control.
Auger Lock-Up (Fig. 12)—When the auger/impel-
ler control and traction drive control are both com-
pressed, the traction control locks the auger/im-
peller control down. Releasing the traction control
releases the auger/impeller control.
Discharge Chute Control (Fig. 12)—Rotate dis-
charge chute control clockwise to move discharge
chute to the right and counterclockwise to move
chute to the left.
Ignition Switch (Fig. 12)—Switch has two posi-
tions: ON and OFF. Rotate key to ON position be-
fore starting engine. To stop engine, rotate key to
OFF.

A. Remove (2) mounting screws securing heater box
in place. Grasp choke knob and pull it off mount-
ing pin.
B. Lift heater box up and away from the engine, and
reinstall choke knob on mounting pin.
IMPORTANT: Check auger and impeller to ensure
that both parts are not frozen, but free to rotate.
Also, make sure discharge chute is not obstructed.
USE A STICK, NOT YOUR HAND, TO REMOVE
ANY OBSTRUCTIONS.
1. Move speed shift control to N (neutral) and throt-
tle to FAST (Fig. 12).
2. Ensure that auger/impeller control and traction
drive control are in disengaged position.
3. Open fuel shut—off valve below fuel tank
(Fig. 14).
4. Move choke to ON choke position (Fig. 13).
5. Rotate ignition key to ON (Fig. 12).
6. Cover hole in center of primer with thumb and
push primer three times slowly. DO NOT PRIME IF
THE ENGINE HAS BEEN RUNNING AND IS HOT.
Note: Excessive priming may cause flooding of en-
gine and failure to start.
7. Grasp recoil starter handle (Fig. 16) and pull it
out slowly until positive engagement results; then
pull vigorously to start the engine. Keep firm grip on
starter handle and return the rope slowly.
Note: If engine does not start or if temperature is
—10% For below, additional priming may be re-
quired. After each additional prime, try to start the
engine before priming again.
8. After engine starts, immediately move choke
(Fig. 13) to 3/4 position. As engine warms up, move
choke to 1/2 position; then to OFF position. If engine
falters, return choke to 1/2 position. When engine
warms sufficiently, move choke to OFF position.
BEFORE STOPPING ENGINE
1. Engage auger to clear any remaining snow from
inside the housing.
2. Run engine for a few minutes to help dry off any
moisture which may have accumulated on engine.
3. With engine running, pull recoil starter with a
rapid, continuous full arm stroke three or four times.
This helps prevent possible freeze—up of recoil
starter due to extreme snow blowing conditions.
Note: Pulling of recoil starter rope produces a loud,
clattering sound. This is hot harmful to the engine or
the starter.
TO STOP ENGINE
1. Release traction and auger/impeller drive con-
trols (Fig. 12).
2. Move throttle to slow and rotate ignition key to
OFF.
3. Wait for all moving parts to stop before leaving
the operator's position (behind the handles).

FREE WHEELING OR SELF-PROPELLED
DRIVE
The snowthrower can be free wheeled or engaged
for self-propelled operation. There are two holes in
each end of the axle. When axle pins are thru outer
axle holes and not thru wheel hub (Fig. 20),
snowthrower free wheels. By contrast, when both
pins are installed thru holes in wheel hub and inner
hole of axle (Fig. 20), snowthrower propels itself.

SNOWTHROWING TIPS
1. When snowthrower is not being used, close fuel
shut—off valve and remove key from the switch.
2. Remove snow as soon as possible after it falls.
This produces best snow removal results.
3. When in the rear Power Shift position, push
down on handles to increase traction if necessary.
4. Discharge snow downwind whenever possible,
and overlap each swath to ensure complete snow
removal. If wheels slip, shift into a lower gear to re-
duce forward speed.
5. In some snow and cold weather conditions,
some controls and moving parts may freeze. There-
fore, when any control becomes hard to operate,
stop the engine and wait for all moving parts to stop;
then check all parts for freeze up. DO NOT USE EX-
CESSIVE FORCE AND TRY TO OPERATE THE CON-
TROLS WHEN FROZEN. Free all controls and mov-
ing parts before operating.
6. Adjust skids to match the type of surface being
cleaned. Refer to Adjusting Skids, page 15.
7. Run snowthrower for a few minutes after clearing
snow so moving parts do not freeze. Engage auger
to clear any remaining show from inside housing.
8. Do not overload snowthrower by clearing snow
at too fast a rate. If engine slows down, shift to a low-
er gear to reduce forward speed.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
9. Move wheels to the rear Power Shift position
and shift to a lower gear in heavy and/or drifted
snow to prevent the auger housing from riding up
over the snow.
10. Always use full throttle (maximum engine
speed) when throwing snow.
11. In wet or slushy conditions, clogging of the
discharge chute will be reduced by maintaining
maximum engine speed and by not overloading
the engine.
®@ ROTATING IMPELLER OR AUGER CAN CUT
OFF OR INJURE FINGERS OR HANDS. STAY
BEHIND THE HANDLES AND AWAY FROM DIS-
CHARGE OPENING WHILE OPERATING THE
SNOWTHROWER. KEEP FACE, HANDS, FEET
AND ANY OTHER PART OF YOUR BODY OR
CLOTHING AWAY FROM CONCEALED, MOV-
ING OR ROTATING PARTS.
e BEFORE ADJUSTING, CLEANING, REPAIRING
AND INSPECTING THE SNOWTHROWER, AND
BEFORE UNCLOGGING THE DISCHARGE
CHUTE, SHUT ENGINE OFF AND WAIT FOR
ALL MOVING PARTS TO STOP. ALSO, PULL
WIRE OFF SPARK PLUG AND KEEP WIRE
AWAY FROM THE PLUG TO PREVENT ACCI-
DENTAL STARTING. USE A STICK, NOT YOUR
HANDS, TO REMOVE OBSTRUCTIONS FROM
DISCHARGE CHUTE.
ADJUSTING SCRAPER (Fig. 21)
Adjust the scraper to compensate for wear and to
ensure that the auger does not contact the pave-
ment.
1. Pull wire off spark plug and make sure wire
does not contact plug accidentally.
2. Check the tire pressure in both tires. Make
sure that they are both inflated equally between 7
and 15 psi.

3. Move the snowthrower onto a flat surface and
shift the wheels to the FRONT position.
4. Loosen the (4) flange bolts securing both
skids to the auger side plates.
5. Next, loosen the carriage bolts securing the
scraper to the auger housing.
6. Support the auger blades so that the auger is
1/8 - 1/4 inch off the ground.
7. Move the scraper so that it contacts the flat
surface all the way across, then tighten the two
rear flanged cap screws securing scraper and
skids to the side plates. This temporarily locks the
scraper in the proper position so that the remain-
der of the fasteners can be tightened without af-
fecting adjustment.
8. Secure the scraper using carriage bolts and
nylon locknuts.
9. Adjust the skids; refer to Adjusting Skids,
page 15.
ADJUSTING SKIDS (Fig. 22)
FOR NCRETE OR ASPHALT SURFACE
If the snowthrower is not cleaning up the snow
close enough to the pavement, adjust the skids
to lower the scraper.
If the scraper catches on cracks in the pavement,
adjust the skids to raise the scraper.
1. Pull wire off spark plug and make sure wire
does not contact plug accidentally.
2. Loosen the (4) flange bolts securing both
skids to the auger side plates.

smooth pavement.
Note: The scraper should be higher than 3/16 inch
above the pavement if the pavement surfaces are
cracked, rough or uneven.
6. Move the skids down to sit flat on the ground
and tighten the (4) flange bolts securing both
skids to the auger side plates.
FOR GRAVEL SURFACES
For gravel or crushed rock surfaces, adjust the
skids to prevent picking up rocks.
1. Pull wire off spark plug and make sure wire
does not contact plug accidentally.
2. Loosen the (4) flange bolts securing both
skids to auger side plates. Next, slide skids down
as far as possible so auger will be supported as
far from the level surface as skid adjustment al-
lows: then tighten flange bolts.
ADJUSTING HEADLIGHT (model 38574 oniy)
1. Rotate headlight to desired position. If light is
difficult to move, loosen locknut (Fig. 23).
2. If necessary, tighten locknut to secure head-
light in place.

Next, pull wire off spark plug and make sure
wire does not accidentally touch the plug.
DRAINING GASOLINE
1. Close fuel shut-off valve located under fuel
tank (Fig. 24).
Since gasoline is highly flammable, drain it
outdoors and make sure engine is cool to
prevent a potential fire hazard. Wipe up any
gasoline that may have spilled. Do not drain
gasoline near any open flame or where gaso-
line fumes may be ignited by a spark. DO
NOT SMOKE a cigar, cigarette or pipe when
handling gasoline.

CHANGING CRANKCASE OIL (Fig. 26)
Initially, change oil after the first 2 hours of engine
operation; thereafter, change oil after every 25
hours of engine operation or annually. If possible,
run engine just before changing oil because warm
oil flows better and carries more contaminants
than cold oil.
1. Pull wire off spark plug and make sure wire
does not contact plug accidentally.
2. Clean area around oil drain cap. Next, slide oil
drain pan below drain extension; then remove oil
drain cap.

fill crankcase with oil: see Fill Crankcase With Qil,
page 10. Wipe up any oil that may have spilled.
AUGER GEAR BOX OIL (Fig. 27)
The auger gear box oil level must be checked at
setup, after every 10 hours of use, and upon re-
moval from annual storage. To check the auger
gear box oil level:
1. Position snowthrower on a level surface.
2. Clean area around pipe plug so dirt is re-
moved.
3. Remove pipe plug from gear box (Fig. 27).

Machine should begin to move forward when trac-
tion lever is depressed approximately halfway
down toward handle grip. Turn engine off and re-
peat steps until proper adjustment is achieved.
IMPORTANT: Do not adjust the belt too tight be-
cause it may cause snowthrower to creep when
traction lever is in disengaged position. If this
occurs, decrease belt tension.

ADJUSTING CARBURETOR (Fig. 37)
The carburetor has been adjusted at the factory, but
an occasional adjustment may be required.
1. Remove carburetor heater box: see To Start En-
gine, paragraph one, steps A & B, page 13.
Note: Skip steps 2 and 3 if the engine will start and
run.
2. Power Adjusting Screw—Close screw by gently
rotating it clockwise until a slight seating resistance
is felt. Next, rotate power adjusting screw 1 full
turn—360°—counterclockwise.
IMPORTANT: Do not close power adjusting screw
or idle mixture screw too tight because the screw
and seat will likely be damaged.
3. Idle Mixture Screw—Close screw by gently rotat-
ing it clockwise until a slight seating resistance is felt.
Engine must be running so final adjustment of
the carburetor can be performed. To guard
against possible personal injury, move auger
drive and wheel drive controls to DISENGAGE,
and remember to keep hands, feet, face, and
other part of your body or clothing away from
muffler, auger, discharge chute, and any mov-
ing part(s).
Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide
which is an odorless, deadly poison. Do not
run engine indoors or in an enclosed area.
5. Rotate power adjusting screw clockwise—
in—1/8 turn at a time until engine misses because of
a lean gasoline mixture. Then rotate screw counter-
clockwise—out—1/8 turn at time until engine runs
unevenly because of a rich gasoline mixture. Next,
rotate power adjusting screw clockwise, back to the
midpoint between the rich and lean setting, so en-
gine runs smoothly.
Note: Wait several seconds between each 1/8 turn
setting so engine can adjust to the new fuel mixture.
6. Move throttle to idle speed. Next, rotate idle
speed screw until engine idles fast—1750 rpm.
21
MAINTENANCE
7. Rotate idle mixture screw clockwise—in—1/8
turn at a time until engine begins to miss because
of a lean mixture. Then rotate screw counterclock-
wise—out—1/8 turn at a time until engine runs un-
evenly because of rich mixture. Next, rotate idle
mixture screw clockwise, back to the mid-point
between rich and lean settings.
Note: Wait several seconds between each 1/8 turn
setting so engine can adjust to the new fuel mix-
ture.
8. Again, rotate idle speed screw until engine
idles at 1750 rpm.
9. Check carburetor adjustment by quickly mov-
ing throttle from low speed to high speed. Engine
should accelerate without hesitation or sputtering.
If engine does not accelerate properly, adjust car-
buretor to a slightly richer mixture. Also, if engine
falters under load, open power adjusting screw 1/8
turn counterclockwise.
10. After carburetor is adjusted, shut engine off
before replacing carburetor heater box.
REPLACING SPARK PLUG
Use a Champion RJ-19LM spark plug or equiva-
lent. Set air gap at 0.030” (0.76 mm). Since air
gap between center and side electrodes of the
spark plug increases gradually during normal en-
gine operation, install a new plug after every 25
hours of engine operation.
1. Clean area around spark plug so foreign mat-
ter cannot fall into cylinder when plug is removed.
2. Pull wire off spark plug (Fig. 38) and remove
plug from cylinder head.
Figure 38
1. Spark plug wire
IMPORTANT: A cracked, fouled or dirty spark
plug must be replaced. Do not sand blast,
scrape or clean electrodes because grit may
eventually release from the plug and fall into the
cylinder. The result will likely be engine damage.
22
3. Set air gap between electrodes of new spark
plug at 0.030” (0.76 mm) (Fig. 39). Next, install
spark plug in cylinder head. Tighten plug to 15
ft-lb (20.4 N-m).
4. Push the wire onto the spark plug.

PREPARING SNOWTHROWER FOR
STORAGE
1. For long term storage, either drain gasoline
from fuel tank or use a fuel additive before stor-
ing. To drain gasoline, refer to Draining Gasoline,
page 16. After fuel is drained, start engine and let
it idle until all fuel is consumed and engine stops.
Repeat the starting procedure two more times to
assure all gas is removed from the engine. If
gasoline is not drained, gum-like varnish deposits
will form and cause poor engine operation and
starting problems.
Fuel can be left in gas tank only if a fuel additive,
such as Toro's Stabilizer/Conditioner, is added to
gasoline and run through engine before storing.
Toro's Stabilizer/Conditioner is a petroleum distil-
late based conditioner/stabilizer. Toro does not
recommend stabilizers with an alcohol base, such
as ethanol, methanol or isopropyl. Use fuel addi-
tive in recommended quantities as specified on
container.
Under normal conditions, fuel additives remain ef-
fective in fuel for 6-8 months.
2. Remove spark plug from cylinder head. Next,
pour two teaspoons of engine oil into spark plug
hole in cylinder head. Install spark plug in cylinder
head, but do not install wire on the plug. Then pull
recoil starter slowly to distribute oil on inside of
cylinder.
3. Lubricate the snowthrower: refer to Lubricating
Snowthrower, page 17. Change crankcase oil: see
Changing Crankcase Qil, page 17.
4. Clean the snowthrower. Touch up chipped sur-
faces with paint. Toro Re-Kote paint is available
from an Authorized TORO Service Dealer. Sand
affected areas before painting, and use a rust
preventative to prevent metal parts from rusting.
5. Tighten all screws and nuts. If any part is
damaged, repair or replace it.
6. Store snowthrower in a clean, dry place, and
cover it for protection.
IDENTIFICATION AND ORDERING
MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER
The snowthrower has two identification numbers: a
model number and a serial number. The two num-
bers are stamped on a decal which is located on
back of engine mounting plate. In any correspon-
dence concerning the snowthrower, supply model
and serial numbers to ensure that correct informa-
tion and replacement parts are obtained.
To order replacement parts from an Authorized
TORO Service Dealer, supply the following informa-
tion:
1. Model and serial numbers of the snowthrower.
2. Part number, description, and quantity of
part(s) desired.
Note: Do not order by reference number if a parts
catalog is being used; use the PART NUMBER.
TORO SERVICE SUPPORT
If help—concerning safety, set-up, operation, maintenance, or troubleshooting—is ever needed, contact
the local Authorized TORO Service Dealer or Distributor. Refer to the “Yellow Pages” for assistance. In
addition to skilled service technicians, the dealer and distributor have factory approved accessories and
replacement parts. Keep your TORO all TORO. Buy genuine TORO replacement parts and accessories.
