Where in PA are you located. I am from PA also.

The folks on this forum have been really great about assisting with LB issues for me and save me a ton of cash and frustrations.

DLK,

I'm in Wexford, just North of Pittsurgh. I picked up an '83 model 8240 for $15.00. It ran fine but a lot of wobble in the wheels, rotted muffler, broken self-propel latch, and a small crack (rock) on the outter most aspect of the deck, where LB's typically rub fences. Installed a new plug, degreased the engine, cleaned the air filter, found a NOS replacement muffler, and decided to go with four steel replacement wheels. I've heard of a product called Alumaloy with which I might try mending the deck. It starts on the second pull and runs great. The only thing I really fear with this machine is the Blade Brake Clutch. I've heard horror stories about them and noticed that LB/Toro with still sell you one for $348.00.
