Brute is now yellow and black and owned by briggs and stratton.

Unfortunately there is no support by anyone for the older brutes.

They are made by the regular companies but depending on which one you have sometimes they used the murray part/model numbers and other times they made there own which makes finding the right part difficult. Not impossible just a pain.

That old of a machine, may have a MTD label on the lower left side of the transmission "box."

There should be a model number. I'd see if parts tree could cross reference it, in the search function. Worth a shot at least.

MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Interestingly, I have a old Brute lawnmover, red in colour. Maybe 30+ years old ...
