    I have an older model Toro 2 stroke commercial mower from the early 90's. I need some opions, should i spend almost $100.00 to rebuild the motor or should i just get ride of the mower? I kinda wanna fix it cuz everything else on the mower is fine, but im un sure. What would u guys do?

    It needs new engine seals and bearings. maybe new rings too. Its probably a little over $80.00 in parts. I would be doing the work myself.

    Even at 100.00 you can't replace it with one of those cheep throw away units from the box stores, So as long as the rest of the unit is in good shape I would rebuild it.

    Well if you don't want it I want to buy it. I got one given to me and boy do I love that little 21" toro proline. You just can't kill it. $200 for the short block and some time. It would be good as new.
