Is noma the name on the hood? I don't recall for certain, but I don't think noma was still in business in 1997-98. What is the model#? Is the belt tight and in good shape?

Not on a murray/noma... one drive belt..
Do make sure its not worn... that is it seats in the pulleys groove well.
Grease could be clumped to the sides or low maybe.

Oh yeah, I forgot that Murray acquired Noma and used the name for a short time. They used the Dynamark name too a little while.

Is the tranny a hydro or standard?

It sounds like it's either low on fluid or is going bad. There is no way to tell how much fluid is in it that I know of. I'd add 1/2 quart and see how it does. I'm not sure what type oil this takes. I'd be tempted to use hygard oil from John Deere (made for hydro trannys).
