Thanks for the help. I have a couple blown up transaxles so hopefully I will have some axles that will fit.

What fluid should I put in this thing and how much? I read somewhere some 80/90 gear oil and then in a different thread they recommended that Peerless stuff.

He was right about the axles. I did not notice until he said something.
You have a few options. With all the blown up transaxles you have you might have some that will work. If not you will have to put key ways in those axles. You wouldn't want to use the wheels that came with that transaxle, they are thin and bend. If they don't bend the drives will strip on the wheels.
However , the axles are case hardened. A typical keyway cutter or end mill will not cut them. The easiest way to key them would be with a grinder. Sand which 2 cut off blades together, or maybe 3 depending on thickness. Then just grind a key way in them.

Doing what you are doing, it probably wont last long anyhow, so I would fill it with cheap vegetable oil to cut down on the drag..Plus it will smell better when it cooks..

Most everyone runs some type of 80w90 gear lube in their transaxles except a select few who run 820's with bentonite and STP or some other additive.

If your not shifting that thing, go to a kart axle with a right angle gear box and set your ratio with your sprockets. Clutch the belt from the engine to the gear box.

For the drag racing my biggest problem was case strength. Typically what fails for me is the case, the differential gets so loaded up that it blows out of the case. However I have been running those smaller transaxles, this will be my first Peerless transmission.

A transmission does not have axles, a transaxle does.
No matter what you were using before, spicer, ECt., don't expect that peerless to hold up any better.

800 series Peerless 5 speed his one is an 806 model...

This is a great transaxle to use for IMOW.  All the shifter gears, shift keys, input and bevel gear are the same as the 700.  The bevel gear is cast however.  Once you change the bevel gear to a steel gear and weld the spider gears up, they are indestructible for IMOW type classes.

Here's another fine Foote...Believe it's a 4360 5 spped came out of a 93 Murrey
Top...



Bottom...



Back...Skinney little bugger... :shock:



Side...



Other side...



Looks like I've just found my transaxle lol

Which is admittedly a little disappointing considering I was led to believe my rig had a peerless but that's OK.
It's in what I believe is a 1985 craftsman II (16hp oppy twin)

So my question is, how does it hold up for racing? Easy to weld?

Sorry if this has already been answered in this thread, my phone isn't cooperating with me and I can't go through the pages.

Identify: Spicer, shifted moves to 6 posistions. Sticker un-readable numbers that did faintly show were 450. And next line 5. Brake on top not side. 2 mount holes, not 4.

yep a  tough little number ''for a foote''some of them have4 shift keys just like a peerless modle #4360-101 locked rear and outward axle berings stock

that explains it. i knew there had to be another model with the top cover cast for bearings. the 4360-7 is only cast in the bottom housing. (i cut the top bearing slots out by hand with my dremel to let me have them.)

the rest of the parts are interchangable, so i may look at grabbing a 4key shaft for mine as well as the better shifting fork. looks like its used in john deer equiment (part num AM120937), so i guess i know just who to talk to.
