Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

Open Question

I have a Murray Select 42 inch with 16 HP Briggs and Stratton. The riding mower is about 11 years old. The transmission is a "shift and go". I am having problem going forward when on an incline and it will slow down and/or stop. I can shift into reverse and back down and then jack with the shifter until I can get the transmission to "catch" and try to continue, but it is clearly getting worse.

SOURCE: is there an oil filter on a Briggs/Stratton riding lawn mower. Model#42A700

Yes there is a spin on oil filter. Depending on the date code when the motor was built there are two possibilities. The easiest way is to measure the length of the filter, If the filter is 2 1/4" long the Part Number is 492932.
If the filter is 3 1/4" long, the Part Number is 491056.

SOURCE: my murray 17 hp 42 inch cut hydrostat mower will

Hydrostat transaxles are very picky like the trans in your car. It must have clean fluid and be full of fluid. I am not saying to fill that transaxle to the top but make sure it is to the top of the fill line. Also it needs to be changed every few years and keep it clean to help it stay cool. If it has a filter make sure to change it when you change the fluid in the transaxle. That fluid is nothing more than 20-50W motor oil.

Locate the tag with your model and serial number on the tractor. Be sure you get the number EXACT or it won't work.
Go to Murray's website and download it. They usually have parts listings at the back of the Owner's Manual

I need the three bolts that attach the motor to the deck on my 42" 14.5hp Murray riding mower and I am not sure of the size without taking opne of the old ones out. Do you have online a manual for...


There are websites like partstree.com or outdoordistributors.com that allow you to enter your mower's model number and you can bring up an illustrated parts drawing, look at those and it will have the numbers and if you are lucky even the sizes. May be able to find on Murray website also the same drawings.

Note if older than 1993 you may not find drawings anywhere, I have not been able to yet for my 1993 Murray 14.5 Hp 42" riding mower.

Also if the engine is the origingal and it is a Briggs and Statton, to find the manufacture date of the mower look for the model-type-code number on the shroud. Sometimes it is stamped sometimes it is on a plate. The last sequence of numbers is the date code. It starts with the last two numbers of the year, followed by the two digit month, then the two digit for the day and then a few other numbers after it. So if the date code is 010427xxxx then the motor was manufactured in 2001, on April 27th. This is the easiest way to get an approximation of a mowers age, if original engine and it is a Briggs and Stratton.

I can't find any thing on my my riding mower


This machine was made by Murray who is no longer in business. Briggs and Stratton purchased a majority of the company and a lot of the parts can still be purchased through Briggs. I do not see a parts diagram for the (b) series but I was able to find one for an (a) which is a year older machine. I have included a link for the parts diagram of it.

Murray riding mower 12.5 hp briggs & stratton spitting oil & gas out of carb & muffler when trying to start


Drain oil... it is full of gasoline due to a bad float pin and rubber gromet in your carb. When your float pin and gromet fail, gas just keeps flowing into your carburetor, eventually flooding your motor with gas and oil mix.

Hard to shifet my poulan pro and wont go into reverse


Try loosening the belt tension to the transmission a little bit. Some of these are just stiff and you have to slip the clutch a little to rock them into gear.
