I have a older model Murray.

The number is 40507X8C. I found

the manual for it but I don't know

what I am looking for. I had a

flat tire and we jacked it up to

replace the tire. It fell over a

couple of times and my stepson put

in on a block. Tire is replaced

and now when you start the engine

and release the brake, it just

sits there. I looked a the gear

shift lever and at the bottom there

seems to be a big band (like a rubber

band) just hanginh there. I could be

wrong about that because I am sixty

two with bad eyes. I found a small

piece of a steel rod (about two inches

long) lying on the ground. It doesn't

look like it was broken off. It is

smooth on both ends and greasy. Not

sure what I should be looking for.

Any ideas? Thanks, Bill Hopefully

you will understand what I am talking

I thought that I would add that the

big rubber band thing is hanging

from the crook in the gear sift

under the mower. And the steel rod

is a square or rectangle. Maybe a

quarter inch or less, probably less.
