    Re: Welcome to the Murray Forum -- Check in Here First!

    I have a handful of murrays, only oddball is my 90 murray :



    Has the rear opening hood setup - when i first got it , i had no idea what the box on the front was for, almost threw it out actually.

    It came with a rear bagger hangar, but no bag setup - i actually found the bagger setup at a Restore for $10, minus the bags.

    Im just curious on how rare the water boxes are , most ive seen use either front wheel weights or a weight on the front axle.

    12HP flathead briggs - i think its a 38" deck ( cant remember ) - sorry for the fuzzy pic , camera was on long distance shot, not close up.

    Ive never had any water in it actually , could probably even put sand in it ( plentiful down here in the south), my dad has a 88 MTD that has a factory bagger and front wheel weights - that also has a 12HP briggs.

    None of my other bagger MTD tractors have weights, altho the PO's couldve removed them.

    I picked up a ZTR husquavara twin bagger setup from Lowes ( price was right- $30) even tho i dont own one - that came with a 20lb front axle weight - thatll get mounted to one of my other tractors.

    MTD - Yard Machines

    Re: Welcome to the Murray Forum -- Check in Here First!

    Hi,

    I just purchased a 1999 or 2000 yard machine (first two engine code numbers are 99). 17 hp Briggs twin with 42" mower deck. The id tag is gone from under the seat. It has a couple of problems, the engine starts but idles up and down/surges. The blade belt is broke and one of the variable transmission belts is broke. I am hoping to id belts w/o having the id. I have the broken blade belt but it is shredded.

    Murray

    Re: Welcome to the Murray Forum -- Check in Here First!

    Hey all! I've posted here before, and just now got the ol Murray finally running! Took a lot of time, but im more than happy with the result... She's a worker, not a shower lol. Ill post a video on here from youtube with all the steps i have taken. Umm i still need a couple things for her, new starter, maybe fiber-glassing a hood. Also i have a buddy that has an old stack that i may put into the exhaust system. Let me know what you guys think of her.

    Yep there good engines. I got one on my home made excavator now. I do need to rebuild the carb sometime though. But other then a little flooding now and then. It runs great.

    I got the hydraulic pump driven off a belt now. Gonna have to get me another camera and post pics and an updated video of the excavator in the build it yourself forum.
