Who Made My Snow Blower ?

I have a Sears Craftsman 9HP snowthrower model#536.887990, the traction drive spring is shot. The problem is that the traction drive spring that Sears sends me as a replacement does not work (the original is short barrel spring with a long extension, so it does not touch the belts) the new model spring that Sears is selling now will not fit between the belt and the engine,chassis space. I figure if I go to the OEM, they should now what spring would be a good replacement. The funny thing is all the parts Sears sends are Briggs and Stratton, and this machine has a 9HP Tecumseh.

Briggs-Murray

Your machine was made by Murray-Noma which is now owned by Briggs. What part number do you have?

What is the part number on the spring that you got?
The part # I come up with is 165X159MA.
