Been a member for a long while but this is my first time posting. My Father has a 417-A and I believe C series (can't remember off the top of my head but it's from the early 80s) so needless to say they got me into wheel horses and I've wanted my own ever since... Fast forward 15 years later and my wife's late grandfather passed an old GT 1100 down to us. The poor thing sat in his front yard for atleast 8 years... Probably longer going off how old the zeroturn he got to replace it was 👎. Finally got around to messing with it and so far we have spark! Looks like he replaced the throttle cable with an aftermarket unit, the cable is too long and hangs up when trying to choke, my local toro dealer said it's no longer available but did give me the part #109132 I've found one website that offers it but says it's "on order" with no eta... Any suggestions? I'm also trying to find a carb kit, spraying some gogo juice in her got her going but there multiple places on the carb leaking... One of which is a bronze colored ball on the side!? Sorry for the long post and for those that stuck around thanks for reading! If you have any tips, tricks or suggestions that would be much appreciated!
Hi, I have a 1984 GT-1100 Work Horse (Model A1-11B801). The Thrust Bearing on the engine (B&S 11HP) has went bad and is no longer available from Toro. Does anyone have suggestions as to where I can source a new bearing? Possibly a generic bearing part number or a compatible bearing from another model Wheel Horse? Also the failure caused the keyway in the engine shaft to wear. Has anyone had success with repairing this type of damage with Loctite 660 or similar? Enjoy the attached pictures. Thanks
