From an estate sale I bought a 1995 Murray Mower that looks like it has only been used a few times. I drained the oil--black but with a grayish tint. The plug looks great. I drained the small amount of gas in it. It's a 3.75 hp Briggs & Stratton engine that turns a 22 inch blade. The Murray model number is 22255X8C. Their website says they have no info for a mower this old. Does anyone have a Murray Owner's Manual for this mower that they wouldn't mind scanning and sending to me?
That's it. There are additional numbers reflecting the date of production, etc., but the model number is just 22255X8C. Nice sticker on the mower deck. BTW, I located enough info on Internet about the Briggs engine and determined it held 18 oz of oil. I added the oil and fresh gas and was able to get it started 11/11/07. Seems like everything is OK. Very short rear deflector makes me wonder if it was supposed to have a grass catcher. That's another reason for needing an owner's manual.
