Murray riding mower

I just picked up this 12hp, 38" 5speed murray rider and have not had it running yet. When I have this in any gear it still moves as if it is in neutral. I also have a craftsman 42" 15.5 hp and when this is sitting and in gear it will not move. Does the Murray have a different kind of trans? Also where is a good place to buy parts if I need them? The date on the tag says 2662, does this mean its an 88? Thanks , Jerry

Pretty sure both of those are belt driven, look under there and make sure the belts are still on the pulleys or not broken, that all springs are in place. if you dont have a local source for parts jacksmallengines on the internet has been a place ive found some hard to get parts before, but now we have a real good source here in town.

This is belt drive and the belt is on. I have the mowing deck off, but the trans should still ingauge. I'll have to check the key in the pulley. Thanks!

It's fixed and works great, the key on the axle was gone. Thanks much!
