Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

Open Question

I have a older Murray rider mower. The model # 38608x12d 12 h/p / 38" cut. Upper back pulley came off and the deck wouldn't engage. So I replaced. Now it's not going into gear, stays in neutral. I've tried rearranging belt cause of not really knowing which way it goes. Because when it came off I smelled burning and it started smoking then belt came off. I was still able to ride it back to shed but now will not engage. Nothing is locked up, pulleys move freely. Is it possible I haven't installed correctly? Can you help with a belt diagram? Help me figure out what my problem is and help fix? Thank You

SOURCE: how to adjust the mower deck on my murray rider,

Park the tractor on a firm, level surface. . .
At the lower end of the lift/lower travel slot, there should be a plastic cover which you pop up so that your blade lift handle goes all the way down (it should say something about blade level on there somewhere. . . . .
After you have the handle in this position, look at the front lift arms of the mower deck and find the 2 large wing nuts, one on each side. . . . .
Loosen these while the deck is down and then retighten them Your deck is now level and will lift to its highest recommended position when you raise the lever

Hi,
There is a switch underneath the seat that will shut the engine down if the mower is engaged and you are not on the seat...that switch is bad and it thinks you are not on the seat so it shuts you down...

I need help putting rear end back together on a 10 hp30 Murray riding lawnmower


Safety and Preparation Serious injury can occur if the engine or mower blades accidentally start while you are working with lawn tractors. To prevent this, drive the Murray lawn tractor onto a flat work surface and disengage the mowing deck cutting blades. Engage the parking brake to keep the mower from moving; chock the wheels with a wooden block or brick. Adjust the mowing deck to the lowest position. Turn off the engine and remove the key from the ignition. While not necessary, you may even wish to disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Mowing Deck Removal You must remove the mowing deck on a Murray lawn tractor to gain access to the belts. Remove the adjustment rod hairpins, followed by the adjustment rod pins from the front left and right sides of the mowing deck. At the rear on the left and right sides, pull out the retaining hairpins and slide the mowing deck suspension links from the adjuster plates to separate the rear mowing deck from the frame. Remove the blade control rod stud, including the hairpin and washer, from the top of the blade control lever shift linkage at the left rear of the deck. Remove the front hanger rod, including the hairpin and flat washer that hold the rod in place. Loosen the belt guide retaining bolts with a socket wrench and remove the engine stack pulley belt so you can slide the mower deck out from under the tractor Transmission Drive Belt Installation Slide the new transmission drive belt between the engine stack pulley belt guides, over the belt guide plate and under the engine stack pulley. Fit the transmission drive belt around the top engine stack pulley. Push the free end of the transmission drive belt up through the transmission shifter hole in the lawn tractor floorboard. Slip the transmission drive belt loop over the transmission shifter. Pull the transmission drive belt down through the transmission shifter hole. Fit the transmission drive belt around the transmission drive pulley and tighten the transmission drive pulley belt guide retaining bolts to hold it in place. Fit the transmission drive belt flat side around the idler pulley. Slide the idler pulley onto the idler pulley stud while holding the belt in place. Tighten the transmission idler pulley retaining nut with a socket wrench to secure the idler pulley to the idler pulley stud. Mowing Deck Drive Belt Installation Pull back on the right side mowing deck mandrel pulley spring-tensioned belt retainer. Guide the new mowing deck drive belt around the right side mandrel pulley and release the belt retainer. Pull the drive belt spring-tensioned retainer away from the mowing deck idler pulley, guiding the deck drive belt around the idler pulley. Fit the mowing deck drive belt around the left side mandrel pulley and under the rear mowing deck cross link rod between the right and left side mandrel pulley. Slide the mowing deck under the right side lawn tractor frame, reconnecting the deck to the frame in reverse order of removal. Engage and disengage the mower deck while driving the mower to test the belt for proper operation.

Engine shuts down when cutting deck engaged


This is probably due to a misadjusted or faulty safety switch on the rider's seat. There is a deadman switch there that will shut down the mower if the rider gets off the seat with the blades engaged.

Murray Select Model # 405000X8 trong vibration when I engage mower deck. Also can't keep deck even.


Could be a number of things included but not limited to.....blade spindle bearings....idle pulley or engager pulley......could also have a bad spot in belt....causing a vibration. This vibration could also lead to deck coming out of level as that model have a leveling adjustment on the deck level control lever.

Hi, I have an older Murray ride on mower, small


Sounds like you have some sort of seize up problem in your deck assembly. Have someone help you with this check, start your engine, engage the blade or blades, and have someone watch the shoot from a distance to see if blade or blades turn. if not then your problem is in the area of top pulley and blade or blades. You may need to replace or loosen the pulley to blade shaft. Sometimes this part is repairable where you can replace bearings or bushings and sometimes the whole unit needs to be replaced. Look to see if there are grease fittings on this unit. Try oil anywhere it will flow down in between areas that may be seized and work on loosening up the pulley blade assembly.
If this doesn't help, go to some of your local mower repair shops, they may be able to sell you a used part. Remember to bring mower information with you so they can help you with the correct part.
I hope this has been helpful to you. GOOD LUCK.

How too replace the blade drive belt on a murray lawn mower


Its actually really easy. First, determine the size of your mower deck. Is it 30" 42" 54" etc. Then, go to a home improvement store like Lowes or The Home Depot (or an online retailer.) Search for a replacement belt for your deck size. Removing the old one is easy. Pry back the retainers on the engine pulley and slip the belt off of the pulley. This should make it very easy to pull off the mower deck. Installation is the opposite of removal. Make sure you note the belt arrangement for proper installation. Good luck!
