Re: Lawn Chief Hydro 545
Recently, i read that the tractor named above was not built by Murray, but by another company, and badged as a: True Value Lawn Chief/ Hydro Lawn tractor. Model 545 Power Plus riding lawn mower.
Thats all i know about it.
Here are the parts i need:
1. The pulley on the input shaft on the tranny: Part number: 095370, a vee pulley.
2. The plastic fan that goes under the pulley: Part number: 115493
3. The retainer ring, that holds the pulley on the transmission input shaft. Part number: 620807
I tried an after-market pulley, but the splines were different, too many splines to fit the input shaft. It was from the Stens catalog. I also accessed the Tuff-Torque web-site, and they informed me that they no longer support any parts for that tractor, nor its components! I also found that MTD had bought out that model of lawn tractor.
The pulley i tried on the transmission input shaft is one i found in a Stens catalog, in belts, pulleys, and idlers. But not being able to see the number of splines before-hand, i found the pulley had much smaller and more splines than i needed. My parts supplier offered to try to sell it for me, but i'll just put it in stock.
So, any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Rusty Jones, The Mower Man.
