well, bought a 6" cast iron pulley for $44 yesterday, along with a starter silinoid and some other stuff for my mowers. started up the montgomery wards and drove it for about 10 min before the engine sized.1997 Murray widebody trail mower - Page 4 Icon_mad good news is, the 17 hp teccy fits with 1/2" to spare!1997 Murray widebody trail mower - Page 4 Icon_cheers also got the pulley on the murray and took it for a spin. it goes about 22 mph, which is not quite fast enough...1997 Murray widebody trail mower - Page 4 Icon_twisted good thing that I have a 3" to go in place of the 4" that is on the tranny now. Oh yes, I got 2 quarts of 80w-90 for the trannys, so hopefully that will help the tranny stay together...1997 Murray widebody trail mower - Page 4 Icon_rolleyes

a better pic of the pipes:

1997 Murray widebody trail mower - Page 4 The_aw12

and the numbers on the engine. it has the heads with 42 on them, but t is a 40 ci engine, witch i think means bigger valves.
