Removal of front bumper/nosesection

Postby CarguyNye » Thu Aug 10, 2017 8:29 am

Hi there,
just joined the Toro club as I bought a 66. I am looking to pull the front bumper and nosepiece that housed the headlamps from a donor car and have made some progress on the nosepiece but am looking for any advice/expertise that folks can provide!

Thank you!

Good afternoon,

I have a 67 Toro and I presume the system didn´t change in this area.
I cannot remember all the steps I took but I can provide you with some pictures of my disassembly. maybe you can figure it our with those.

Regards
Claas

If you cannot find the needed information in these I can go back to take some more detailed pictures. Just give me a note which area you need to see.

Sorry I haven't checked here lately as I figured out how to remove the bumper and nose section. The bumper was not too bad, just six bolts, three on each side. The nose section was a little trickier as you have to disconnect the actuators. The other key is that you have to unbolt the headlight assemblies as well. But thank you for the replies and photos!
