Another Murray!!
murray ride on lawn mower/tractor
Went to get it, nice lady owned it. She would not haggle, no biggie as it looked clean. Got it home and it started with direct jump box. Run great!
We found a bad solenoid and repaired that. Then found the safety seat switch inop, found cut wire. I fixed that and then it died when getting off with brake on? The switch was no good, I replaced it and Good! So EVERYTHING works! In a hour we got a working machine for $100? Thank God!! Wow! Now to detail and take deck off. Sharpen blades and repaint deck. The battery and oil are good! She said a shop took care of it. We then stopped at yard sale and found a sweet push mower for....$15! It runs, but needs carb clean! God blessed us today!










Packed house!




Look into no crank and found this!?

Well, that solenoid was definitely the problem!:sidelaugh $100 for a nice opposed twin cylinder mower like that is a pretty sweet deal. :cool

UPDATE!! Rubbing compound and buffer found its way to paint!! Took headlight lens out and cleaned inside and out!
Painted hitch area quick. The stickers on hood are messed up, but guess it is what it is!

Hi Kori, you noticed it too? I hear something also. I am part of a Murray owners forum also and a local guy with one had a similar issue lately. Turned out it had loose engine bolts. I plan to check on this one.
