I live just south of Baltimore Maryland.  Iím looking to get into Mower racing with My 11 year old son.  I know itís a little late in the season but I think we could get a jump on next year.   I started just taking any old mower that was free or cheap and for now just getting them put back together and running.  I donít want to really to make any changes until I find the right people to talk to about the rules in Maryland. 
If any of the racing clubs in Maryland see this could you please drop me a line that I could contact you about the dos and doníts of building a racing mower in this state.
I guess another question is this.  Right now I am just taking anything I can get my hands on, but is there anything I should keep an eye out for or stay away from.    I just got my hands on an older monkey wards mower just because I liked the way it looked, but from what I have read so far it might be too heavy.
Iím not looking to build a supper speed machine, I am really just looking at this as something fun that me and my son can do together.

Ray,

   GrubDigger has the right idea.  Chances are, this mower was parked out in the weather at some point, and water/moisture got inside the case, corroding and rusting the shift mechanism, as well as the shift keys, collar and shaft.  Teardown and cleanup are the only way to see exactly how bad it is.

   Remove the shift-detent screw, spring and ball before removing the cover.

Heymowers,

   I am trying to compile a list of the transaxles Murray used in their late-model riders -- mid-engine, rear-engine, standard, or wide-body -- anything from 1997 to now.  When you look one up in the Murray Parts Lists, all they show is "Transaxle, Peerless (or Dana / Spicer) -- For Replacement Parts, see the Central Service Distributor in your area."  So...whenever any of you come across a Murray rider with its original transaxle, please note the Model Number of both the Murray and the transaxle, then let me know.  All input greatly appreciated!

   If you're unsure of the date of the mower, most late-model Murrays used Briggs & Stratton engines, so look at the first two digits of the engine Code Number -- that tells the year-of-manufacture of the engine, and that is usually also the year of the mower.

   You can Reply here, PM me, or if you want to call me directly or email me, my Contact information is in my Profile.  And yes, I am interested in hydrostats as well as gear-drive transaxles.  If I can compile a reasonably complete list, I will Post it here.

   Thanks!  Wink
