I would have paid $5 for that beauty all day.. Three speed Toro..oh yeah. Carb cleaned up pretty nice. BBC works okay I presume? It should..they are pretty stout.
I'll find out how t he BBC works when/if I get it started. Controls all look good though. Carb needs to be cleaned up more. Gotta pull the the screw out and clean it I'm sure, and the choke and throttle valves are still sticky (although they at least move now, they were both seized).I would have paid $5 for that beauty all day..

Interesting. I have noticed that it's carburetor is very similar to the standard Briggs quantum engine's. Only real difference is a breather tube and the deeper bowl, bowl nut adapter, and washer. I finished cleaning the carburetor this evening, tomorrow I''ll see if it starts.The earlier GTS was a Suzuki. This is a briggs "Europa" I think they call it.
Probably a better engine than standard briggs but parts are hard to find and more expensive and I had one that leaked badly at crankcase sump gasket.
I'll stick with the suzuki (parts still high though) or regular old l head briggs.
Good idea, I'll keep it in mind if the the JB Weld solution fails.If the jb weld doesn't hold it in place, you could drill a hole in each corner (right in the corner, so part of the hole is in the patch, and part is in the main housing), then put a bolt in each hole, with a washer on each side.
I'd love to learn how to weld and get a welder someday. I've only used one once. It's pretty fun.Nice job on the carb!
Man I am so glad I have an aluminum spool gun for my mig welder. Fixing that deck would be a walk in the park for me. But hey JDweld is a great solution. :thThumbsU
