Toro Recycler 7 HP Lawn Mower Repair – A Free Craigslist Find – Part I – Nov 18, 2012

Part I of a rare find to even get any “free” mower on Craigslist most are junk, this one is the nicest I ever got. A fairly new Toro Recycler 22 Inch mower with Personal Pace self-propelled, no bag. It has a Briggs and Stratton 7 HP engine with the Ready Start Carburetor. This model 20333 has the Spin Stop Engage Blade system. Had been left outside for some period of time all the cables were frozen up, filthy air filter, and stagnant gas smell. This is a video of what it looked like when I first got it and after a good wash. Freed up the stuck Blade Engagement cable and then beginning to take it apart, to discover why it has no compression. See Part II here for why no compression:
