Sweet machine ya got there! Murray built I believe, has a Peerless 700 too! Great transmissions, preferred by mower racers. Yours is very similar to @ConfedraSears Lt8/36. I'd change the pulleys to a 6 to 6 setup to help the belt grip, and then mess around with the axle sprocket. Good luck!

Nice! I love those older all metal lawnmowers powered by old Briggs flatties. Those front wheels look a little small though Razz

May looks like you have the makings for a possible speed demon! That looks like a peerless 700!
