40' 12.5hp Murray Spindle Shaft

Posted by mattwoodward TN (My Page) on

I have an older Murray and the bushing on the bottom of the Spindle broke. It looks like it's a one piece design. I've tried to look up my model # with no luck. The only parts I find on the internet are a separate Spindle and mandrels. Anyone know if they changed them from a one piece unit to ones that you can rebuild?

Model # 4072x92f
Mfg date-serial 95114-111817

Are you perchance missing a digit in the model #? Only the more later Murrays- early / mid 2000's started to use the one piece spindle that I know of.

The Murray spindle has always been reparable. Once the pulley and blade is removed the shaft can be carefully driven out. Each of the parts are available separately or as a unit. The jack shafts usually don't come with the spindle because there are so many different lengths.
