Does it look like that one?

or...



more like that one?

Either way, murray most often goes by the hp and deck size then by year. Unless it's a hydrostatic drive, then it's a different beast where part#'s come into play. so say, a murray tractor from 1997 would be...

97 - 12.5/40

If you have "speed levers" then you don't have a hydrostatic drive. Hydro is a hydraulic power transmission system. Controls generally boil down to a 2-way pedal that you push one way to go forward, the other way to reverse. Speed depends on how far you push the pedal, and there is no gear selector.

I don't know what model you have, but it seems to be that you have enough info to order parts. A 5-pin outgha be fine. Here's a generic wiring diagram to give you an idea-
