just being practical. You can get a whole running mower, cheaper and easier than trying to patch up what you have. Everything that was any good has been stripped off.

And, no I did not accept Murray mowers for repair in my shop, there was no end to fixing them. Typical problem was belt/blade work. The spindle assy was shot, the deck was rusted through where the spindle bolted on. The Idler pulleys were shot, the bracket that held the pulley bent, the lever that engaged the bracket was worn out, etc, etc. And sorry, I can't put your NAPA belt on it and guarantee my work. You have to know when to walk away.

I understand, I was actually thinking of having it hauled off for scrap. Although the frame intrigues me as a base for a 10 2.5 inch gauge locomotive build. Stripped down without all the mower crap attached it would be a base for building a shunter like this one. https://www.trovestar.com/images/Col..._124214_19.jpg

6HP Honda clone and a old Alt running two 24v winch motors as traction motors. Simply electrical system similar to http://www.smex.net.au/reference/Alt...Traction02.php

Find a cheap source for flat steel about 1/4 thick press it into some 2x2 ties and have a crude RR. Crude track of similar design seems to handle a Bigboy just fine in New Zealand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C48pU2_KePg
