I did a Toro the other day and got this straight from the Toro Distributor, or I'd have never fixed mine. When you remove that float bowl brass bolt, there is the usual hole down the middle and the two holes on the bottom sides. BUT, there is another hole that is so tiny you cannot see it and that is "What goes wrong with these mowers every time" (Toro Guy's words). Right at the very top of the threads on that bolt, there is a pin hole that the only thing you will fit thru it is the tiny wire that the needle valve hangs on. You must unplug that hole and clean it well with carb cleaner or your mower will not run. Good luck!

I own a Toro model 20070 mower with a Tecumseh engine. It's 8 yrs old. I have regular maintenance conducted. The mower starts and runs well but about 20 minutes into mowing, when I shut it down to empty...


Are you sure there is oil in the machine?
Are the Fins on the engine clean and not loaded up with sand and mud?

Sounds like it is running so hot that it is seizing.

Toro recycler 20017 is very hard to start. it has to be primed many times. after it run a while it starts on one pull.


The carburetor may need to be serviced. You need to find a parts shop that handles Tecumseh parts. You will most likely need a rebuild kit for the carburetor. The carburetor part number is 640303. The rebuild kit is 632809. The Tecumseh engine company shut its' doors 3 years ago. Finding parts is becoming harder and harder. I've heard that someone has bought Tecumseh over the winter but it is unknown when the new parts will hit the market. Best of luck to you.

Where is oil drain plug on toro 22'' mower- tecumseh engine


IF you do not see the drain plug o the side of your engine, than most likely it is located on the bottom of the engine you will most likely have to remove the guard that covers the belt if you have self propelled lawn mower and the plug should be under the guard. Good Luck

I have the same mower and problem. Found out the issue was the carburetor. Pull the Carb and do a quick cleaning. Order the replacement kit prior to working on. My bowl o-ring was shot and I couldn't get a seal after cleaning it out.
