Thanks; I've never thought to check that, but will do. The refrigerator used to be the paragon of reliability, now not so much, I guess. My parents bought theirs when they were married in 1939; it's...

I really just wanted to add this as a comment/question to the "Refrigerator clunks when compressor shuts off" thread, but the forum doesn't condone commenting on old threads.

Why didn't I think of that?

Great idea. I'm embarrassed I didn't think of that. And a few ounces at a time are free :). I did think of alcohol of some kind, but weighing its hygroscopic benefits against its unknown effects on...

Long-term storage is an art. I worked on old round aircraft engines in my past, and we used various pickling mixtures to preserve them. I haven't found anything that will work reliably, on a small...

Honda generator won't start

I'd love to know if all that worked, 'cause I've got the identical problem. The unit has been sitting idle for a few years, so I'm very suspicious of the carburetor's health. I'd take it to the local...

Replacement latch kits

Not available at my local Ace, but are available at Amazon for about $18, or at other sites for a lot less. Google "mailbox replacement latch plastic" or something similar. I just ordered one for...

Now I know 2 women who know what a left-handed drill bit is, but only one who has actually used one. Wow. I'm impressed. Keep up the good work -- all of it.

On page ix of the manual I referenced, the "Code List" for your 20054 mower shows it's a Cast Deck model, with a Spur Bevel transmission. Digging further into the manual, Section 2 deals with that...

The Toro WPM Drive Systems Manual (Googlable) says:

"Proper lubrication for this transmission is 2.5 3 fluid ounces (7.1cc 9.0cc) of lithium based No. 2 grease."

They also say, when...

Taz, that was my thought as well, but it didn't look ragged enough. Looking again, though, the upper end of the C and the lower end are asymmetric enough that I'm deciding it is a misprint after all....

FWIW, I have pump drawing water from a lake; the pump and pressure switch are at the lake end of the dock, and the pressure tank is at the land end -- about 60' away. Works fine.

I'd like to believe the color has nothing to do with it, but one never knows. In my mower (a 20092), you have to grab the axle under the deck and pull it outward as you install the final parts on the...

Final (I hope) update:
Have now replaced everything that looked worn on both sides, as well as both wheels, which were probably not worn enough to worry about. R side was worn much less than L side,...

Based on the Toro Parts Manual for that model (3358-407 Rev A), I think that's correct, and is the normal way to install a Woodruff key, if that's the "key" you're referring to (p/n 612066, Ref...

Usually the R means it's a right-side gear, and the R goes on the outside. ("L" on the outside of the left-hand gear.) I'm no expert, but it looks like the gears might be interchangeable if they were...

Update: I replaced the worn bushings on the pivot arm, pinion gear, and wheel on the left side. The grinding-gears noise went away, and the left side actually helps drive the mower now. Jury is still...

Can an "R" pinion gear be installed on the left side?

I don't have one of these steel-deck PP mowers, but I'm wondering if the gears are interchangeable. Usually the R means it's a right-side gear, and the R goes on the outside. ("L" on the outside of...

Pp 20092

Is there anything special I need to know about the 20092 model (s/n 280017640)? Do the previous remarks about the other cast-deck models apply? I have both the no-backy-uppy problem (mostly on the R...

In the Toro "Toro Walk Behind Manual Drive Systems" manual, they say to make a tool to help get the handle off; don't know if it applies to all models:

Strange. Bluetooth operates on a different chunk of spectrum than the keypad does, and uses frequency-hopping (thank you, Hedy Lamarr) as well. Sounds like the receiver in the keypad isn't very...
