Specs as of 11/11/2016
- Worn out 11hp flathead
- unlocked peerless 801
- five inch rear pulley to four inch front pulley
- original exhaust with no baffles
- original crappy murray clutch
Plans for it
- locking the 801
- upgrading the clutch
- exhaust
- new carb
- Snorkel kit
- 24" rear tires
- upgrade the front pulley to a 6"
- fix the stock steering
Thats it for now. I will update it as i either add stuff to the list or fix something. Just put it into storage for the moment since i need to sell a couple things before i can get room to work on it again.

Nice! Very nearly identical to your other Murray. Are those rears 24s? They look more like 19s or 22s? Or maybe its just the picture lol scratch

Matthew, thats because its actually is identical. The only difference between the two is one year and different style headlights. They both left the factory with the following,
11hp briggs flathead
36" mowing deck
Peerless 801 (5 speed)
And the model numbers match besides the date.
