Can anyone tell me the approximate years and models of Murrays these steering plates (or whatever they are called)? They came off of Murrays I parted out in the late 90s. I think the black one was from a Sears made by Murray. I got it from a customer I mowed for. He had just replaced the steering plate on it before I got it. He didn't tell me only a few of the 5 gears worked so I parted it out. The gear on the shaft of the black one is like new. The gear on the shaft of the red one is worn. I am at least going to list the black one on ebay but I'm not sure if it is worth it to list the red one.
This particular style was used between 1989 and 1996 on the old pan frame tractors. The pan frame returned around 2003 or 2004 and was sold at Walmart along with the Widebody tractors as a value leader. It was called the Murray Classic.
