Does your powerdrive run off of the Cam?
My uncle had one that looked almost identical to that one but a bit older.After the engine wore out he found a place that sold replacement engines for them and ordered one.Can't get them for under $150 and if you want electric start your paying big bucks.I think he spend around $170 for the new engine,blade set,belt and pulley.
New engine is a 4.5hp briggs engine.Plenty of power and still a light weight engine much like the original but no electric start.
Battery box that hung under the controls was removed and gutted.
I ended up with it after he passed away.I used it a couple times and gave it to my neighbor.They needed a good mower and I had 4 push mowers here so I just gave it to them.They use it weekly and they keep it clean and stored indoors when not in use so it ended up at a better home than I could give it.I have no storage shed or garage.All I have is a little 8x10 shop that's filled with tools and lots of spare parts.
Love the self propelled unit on them.Push the leaver forward and away it does.
Only thing I hated about Toro back in the day was they used alot of there own parts.Parts were very expensive.Like the drive wheels with the metal gear.I think they were around $40-$50 each.
