    When I assume....

    thats 100% on you, as mentioned by others, when parts get over $100 you confirm with owner and get authorization no matter if they said "do whatever it needs" because in almost every case, in their mind, saying that meant dont go over $100 on parts

    PTO

    its the seat switch, if your butt isnt in the seat it kills the mower as soon as you engage the blades, sometimes the plug to the switch isnt fully pressed o on also check if its in reverse if its not the seat switch

    help with PTO slippage issues

    turns out you were right bert, PTO clutch isnt the problem, its the keyway inside it after more closer look it seems the PTO key was slipping around the slot and not holding fast thats rather odd but i guess its a cheap chinese replacement or something because the bump is not protruding much...

    Briggs Cam shaft replacement (pieces)

    i found the same thing, its not from the governor so it has to be part of the cam. the replacement cam has nothing like it so i assume its only on the oem cams when built

    Murry automaticdrive hydrostatic trans goes faster in reverse than forward

    rewatch the video, i do recall somewhere in it he said if you put something in backwards forward would be reverse and reverse would be forward. maybe im mistaken but if not you might be able to flip that part to convert it clock wise and/or counter clock wise to work correctly

    Murry automaticdrive hydrostatic trans goes faster in reverse than forward

    so it came with the issue and you didnt return it to get one that works correctly? that sounds like a silly decision, but i think we all made those decisions to live with something that isnt quite right from time to time i do recall something can be installed backwards and cause operational...

    Troubling Engine Noise

    pull valve covers and confirm one set of valves hasnt come loose, these engines will run great on just one cylinder so check the obvious most common things first like a valve adjustment coming loose

    Murry automaticdrive hydrostatic trans goes faster in reverse than forward

    a whole list of things my guess would be a restricted screen or weak pump not allowing good pressure flow "what" the issue is, would be more about your curiosity rather the troubleshooting , since once you open those things up its a total rebuild or you will inevitably be going back into it again
