That looks sharp. I like the nose red like that. $200.00 is a great deal. Looks like someone adapted another brands hitch, sweet that it has one. Is that rattle can paint?. It looks great. Can't wait to see more pics............

I like the red! Hope the paint holds up on the nose piece. You need a bumper to prevent any bump into the grille. You need to find the rest of the sleeve hitch. I have some drawings of that and there was Pdf file I think that showed the dimensions for the sleeve hitch part itself that attached low. You just would need the lift link to connect to the pivot shaft.

These pdf files were some I was working on a while back ( for my Green Machine Murray) but was never able to get the missing dimensions, but I figured I could get the measurements pretty close by the scale of the pieces against the corresponding part.

I should give credit to DeckApe for the photo shots of the rear of his GT.

That's a fine looking Murray. Looks great w/red and black. Nice work and I'm looking forward to seeing the Ag's on it as well. Take care and keep the photos coming.

If it's like my lt, which it probably is, there are 3 different holes where the spring from the idler bracket can attach to the blade engage arm. You can try a different hole to see if that helps. The holes are there to compensate for belts stretching due to age. Also, check the spring that attaches from the engagement arm to the deck for integrity [ie not stretched or damaged]. You may be due for a new belt. Hope this helps.

I 'd also look under where the lever is and check it (engine off) with it in the engaged position. When it is in this position, it should be forcing the idler pulley into a position that makes it travel past its peak of the arc of travel. This would not be different in the 3 different holes, which are only adjustment of force of the tension on the belt by the idler pulley. The arc of travel should have a point where the travel of the lever against the spring should be tight to push upward into engaged position, and then lessen as it gets past the peak of the arc of travel. I have seen some of the Murray decks where there was binding of the engagement movement. It might not be fully engaging, and might need to be greased to assure it has full travel of the arc of travel that is then moving the engagement movement fully, which would have the effect of the peak of the arc "engaging" and going past the peak and thereby staying engaged. For it to become disengaged on its own, indicates not being fully engaged, and I suggest the deck movement itself.

Sorry for the techno-jargon

Hank, you should consider installing a winch on the back to use for power up/down on the sleeve hitch. Only $59 at HF...$39 if you wait until Aug 27. This is one addition that you WILL like! As a bonus, if you get stuck, you can winch yourself out.
