Once I get the Bolens LK running again, I have a project waiting. I have a old possible Murray with a B&S 20 HP engine on it (engine was added, opposed twin) that is supposed to run. I'll bring it up and we'll see. If that does run, the engine will be a replacement into a JD 265 with a knock. It has the Kawasaki 17HP in it. Should be a fun project. This 20 HP has an oil filter, needs some tins which I have. Just got to get the LK done and out of the way!

I went out back and got the B&S engine #'s. It's a 460777 1276-01. Around 45 cu. in. I may drag it up here in a bit.

I brought the old Murray up today! Looks like it was a stout machine at one time. And yes, that is part of a Sears lift on the back.

Id tag reads as follows:

4-39004X92

Date of manufacture: 0134

 

Anywho, The 20HP ran for a few seconds on carb cleaner! :dancingbanana:  A bit more playing around and I'll have it going strong.

I hooked a temp fuel tank to it and a bigger battery and it fired off and ran til I grounded the kill wire. I don't see a rectifier anywhere, so don't know if it's charging.

If it has a manual PTO, then likely it just has a 3 amp charge circuit with the little diode in the stator output wire.

It is most likely that way, Daniel. But I just happen to have some possible donor stators. Have to check that out.

 

EDIT: I have 2 horizontal twins that had electric PTO's on them. Hoping the flywheel and stators will interchange.

Well, I SOL on the charging system. I don't have anything better then what is there right now. But, I did see something interesting on the tie rod ends.

Ever seen these with zerks? Spindles are oil lube only, but you can grease the tie rod ends!

 

And I have the hood for this old girl.

Thinking about taking her for a drive!

Thinking about leaving this as is except getting the hood remounted. The starter needs repair/replaced. I have another just like it, but the top bushing is bad. Can't buy just the bushing, have to replace the whole top end. They wanted $45 for that. Found a new starter on Ebay for $24.14 and free shipping.

I'll get a flywheel and stator for the Kohler 25HP and put it in the JD 265. It's a bit skinnier and about the same length wise. Plus, it will have a 15 Amp charging system for the electric clutch.

So, you'll have saved a Murrey while a JD goes wanting. ???

The JD will get the bigger engine! More power!

This old Murray has a lot going for it. It still has the original battery hold down among a lot of other cool things. Would be a good trailer puller and a few other things with the sleeve hitch.

I wanted to see how it would look with the hood on correctly. Had to trim some off the bottom inside of the hood and take the muffler off to get it on though. To put the muffler back on would entail cutting about 4" up the front of the grille. Or add on to the exhaust pipes and put the muffler lower? Definitely need a bumper then!
