    I found out some very handy info yesterday, we have a 94 mitsu here that needs a new cap and rotar. After a little bit of googling I found that the engine in the 94 (perhaps others) is the same engine used by Toro in some of their commercial mowers, we were able to get a new cap and rotar at the toro lawn more dealer!!!

    That's very interesting! I never thought about it 'till you mentioned it, but, yeah, Mits engines are popular in small equipment. This engine (http://www.commercialpower.com/display/router.asp?DocID=79717#anc) is actually a Mits engine. I'd have to check but I believe the Mits/Briggs deal is done now and they're changing engine manufacturers. Do you happen to have the part #'s handy? I'm in the small engine business and I'd like to check it out and get prices. Toro isn't usually the cheapest source for parts.

    I don't have the part #'s here at home, when I get to the shop this afternoon I'll see if I can dig them up. I wasn't so much concerned with Toro having the cheapest prices but a readily available source for parts without having to call japan.

    Freemont:
    Yeah, I understand that. I'm always curious about pricing too, though, since things are so competitive nowadays. The important part is you got (or can get) what you need quickly and easily. The rest is just a matter of curiousity for me. If it's not handy for you, forget about those #s.

    BLES, i had found this out and had found somewhere a carb rebuild kit part# for a mitsubishi engine on a toro workman but did not know if it would work because it has less HP than the mini truck engines but it did say it was for a Mitsubishi 3g83 Carb. What do you think i may can find the link again if you need it. Thanks michael

    Hey Michael! Don't sweat it. It was just an interesting thing to me cause I deal in Briggs (Mits) parts every day.

    As a side note on this I forgot to add, in case anyone has one of these with the japanese plugs I was able to use Autolite 3923s and it pur's like a kitten:D

    Here's what I've found on this: (first of all i have no affiliation w/Toro - just thought this might be of interest to 3G83 engine owners)

    Best i can tell Toro used Mits 3G83 engines in their Workman series (3200/4200) commercial landscape/golf course equipment (1993-2001). I think they went with Daihatsu engines from 2002+ (a 950cc version).

    Here's the link to the 3G83 carb cleaning instructions (it's a 4 page customer svc bulletin - disregard pg1-2 look at pg3-4).

    http://www.toro.com/customercare/Commercial/bullentins/Vehicles/pdf/04-03.pdf

    For more parts/#'s and nice assembly diagrams do this:

    https://lookup3.toro.com/partdex/index.cfm?xCaller=Toro

    On the Toro Master Parts Viewer page - enter model number 07200. This will bring up a Table listing model years 1993-2001, to the right of the year you desire, click on View Assembly Drawings.

    This page will list available assembly drawings. click on one and it will give you an exploded view of that assembly with a parts/# list on your left.

    Click on a part # and it will take you to a Parts Pick List page. Click on the blue "click here". This will take you to the "Where to buy, Service or Rent Toro" page.

    Scroll to the bottom of that page under Professional Contractor:
    ---in box one choose "Landscape equipment"
    ---in box two enter your US zip/Canadian postal code
    ---in box three leave "Service"
    click on green find arrow

    Now you have a Retailer Locator info page - call one up, give them your part # and see what happens.

    One thing, certain assy/parts ore not going to be compatible (breather, exhaust and other assy - this is landscape equip). However things like starter, alternator, distributor/wires/plugs (even shows plug #) prob will work.
    Don't know about the front/rear brake assy/parts but you can look at the assy and see. I have no idea about prices or service - just an FYI for anyone interested.

    Not trying to get into any dealer/sponsor's business just thought the info might help the masses....later, slim

    I can confirm that the rotar/cap/ and plug wires all work just fine, I'm fairly confident that most other "standard consumable" parts outside of brakes will work as well.

    fremont so it don't make any difference that the engine on the workman has less horespower than the mini truck engine? I had wondered if it did.

    i guess not, i wanted to get a set of plug wires for my 95 mits when i changed the plugs but couldn't get a cross reference number i guess you solved that problem for me. Thanks alot and if you find any more parts from the toro will work post it Thanks again

    Did anyone purchase a carb kit from the Toro dealer? Or do you know where I could buy a rebuilt or new carb for my 4 cyl mini truck? (Mits/Cushman) Thx

    That Mitsu sold a long time ago but I have almost a dozen here now so I'll see what I can find on the ones that are here.

    Hey Golf cart guy, call your ez-go golf cart vendor. They are the supporting vendor for the cushman trucks. I posted a web site in the reference section that will get you to a very thourough parts manual with exploded parts breakdowns.
