Hey guys,

Wondering what the go is with sourcing an engine for a gm1000.
Seems like they are hard to come by second hand and not able to be bought brand new.
Is there an alternative?

Hi Bryan,
Looks an ugley setup so I'm guessing you will have to strip the covers off around the motor to see if we can give you any advice as to what other motors could be fitted to it.

This is the problem with a lot of the toro professional stuff - parts are hard to get and cost a fortune.

I have only ever seen one of these and from memory there is a cog that is either cast on the end of the crankshaft or is part of a sleeve that fits on the end of the crankshaft.

I don't see why a honda gx120 or 160 wouldn't work provided it all clears and the cog is on a sleeve. It should just be a 5/8 or 3/4 inch shaft, potentially (but not likely) with a reduction box.

If the gear is integral to the crank, then you have problems

How are the headlights powered?


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

Hi Bryan ,Norm ,Tyler ,Mf

Sounds like you want some lights for a mower Mf.

Toro sell a light kit and in the kit is a generator that runs off the V belt, with some other motors they have an extra magnet
on the flywheel that charges the battery from the primary side of the coil when the piston is at bottom dead centre ,like the
Victa Powertorque.

I think the original motor on this Toro is a Kawasaki FE120, but have also seen Subaru® Heavy-Duty Industrial 4.5 hp (3.36 kw), OHC 4-cycle engine.on these ,like an EX13 ,I've seen these mowers sell in the US for $200. https://www.purplewave.com/auction/190402/item/EQ9050/Lawn_and_Garden-Lawn_Mower-Kansas

I guess you could see if a Honda clone would fit like a GX 160 5.5 Hp.

Cheers
Max.
