You know, I'm trying to clear mowers out, not add more, but sometimes it's hard to pass up a deal ($10). It's a Toro 22621 Commercial 21" with a Suzuki 4-cycle engine on it. I've never had one before.
Guy said it runs and the drive works, but blows smoke.
He's right on all counts. It starts right up on the first pull, drive system works well, and it blows blue smoke.
Having known of, but not dealt with the 4-cycle Suzuki engines, I have to say, wow, lots of power! Between that and the deck, it powers through grass that would big everything else down. Didn't leave any clumps behind either.
So this brings us to the problem: it blows blue smoke, always some, but more under load. Oil level is fine, so am I potentially looking at oil getting past the piston rings? Something else?
I just looked at the cost of parts for this engine...yikes!
