snowblower parts to find

I have an older craftsman trak driven snowblower that has a worn traction hex shaft. This item is no longer available through murray or sears. Any ideas here as I do not want to mothball my machine...

The new part number is 313893MA Your local Murray dealer can order one for you. Why not support the local shop?

great info, thanks a bunch. I came up with the same part #, mind if I ask you how you know this is the right one?

I am trying to support the local shop, but they wanted to scrap the machine! I said no way, I can find the part, so that is why I am looking.

Because I have been a dealer for 25 years and I'm smarter than the average bear!

If the guy in the local shop would have tried to help you, instead of tring to posioning himself to mabey to sell you a new one, he might get a sale in the future. Thats how you compete with the big guys.

partsandservice.com would have found the new part number from the old. I use it for that quite often.

A problem here, I called rcpw.com about this part and they told me that it would not work, yet the dude admitted he didnt know for sure. I recently checked out partsandservice.com and the same number came up. Sounds like this is it. Any other thoughts on this?

I'm not quite sure what you want me to tell you. Manufactures some times supersede part numbers. Some time on or before 1996 Murray superseded 7091 to 313893 now 313893MA. When Briggs brought Murray they add "MA" to the end of all of the Murray part numbers. Now for some inexplicable reason all of the manufactures are dropping all of the old discontinued part numbers from their price lists losing all of the cross references. If a dealer didn't save the old price lists than he will have no way to find these old crosses. 313893 should be the correct part number however if I were you I would take the unit apart to be sure that you don't need any other parts. Take pictures before you disassemble it! The friction disc wheel part number 53807 superseded to 760457MA may need to be replaced too.

anyone?

Now the big question is finding this part. No suppliers have it or have it ordered or can answer if it is still available. Anyone know another source to check here?
