Nick,

   If you want to save it properly and done right the first time, have it professionally turned by:

Owen,

   How do you plan to "drill" the lightening holes in these gears?  These gears come in two types -- heat-treated steel or powdered metal -- and both types are hard.  Do you have access to special bits that will penetrate these metals, or maybe a laser cutter?  You'll need to be careful not to affect the heat-treating of the gears, especially the teeth and the bores.

Martin,

   You're handle is DeereRacer. Well...go to your local Deere dealer and get some P/N AM127304 bearings. These are 3/4" ID, 1-3/8" OD, double-sealed ball bearings with outer shoulders -- good heavy-duty ball bearings.  I use them on the front wheels of my RoMower custom yard tractor shown in the Other Interesting Builds section.

4  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: Stronger input shaft for Peerless 800? on: August 18, 2014, 02:45:38 PM
Is there a thicker input shaft that I can get for my Peerless 800 (I believe its an 800). The input shaft necks down to 1/2" for the pulley, all of my other transmissions use a 5/8" input shaft. I am worried this will be a weak point.
Scott,

   The standard input shaft for the 800 & 801 transaxles is 5/8" diameter and extends 1-3/16" above the lower thrust washer over the cover post -- 1" for the pulley hub, and room for the snap ring to hold the pulley on.  It has the 3/16" x 3/4" Woodruff key keyway.  It is P/N 776135.

   It is the most-popular input shaft for older transmissions and 3/4"-axle transaxles -- it fits many 500 and 700 transmissions as well as 900, 910, 920 and 930 transaxles. It does not fit the MST 200-Series of transaxles.

Anyone know a good place to get a 700 Peerless style Trans? Not ec disturbing. Haven't had good luck with theirs.

   The price was right, but it looks like a hydrostat with 12" drive wheels.  Just use the chassis and engine...?!   confused

I have a 700 Peerless transmission in my John Deere and it's an EC clutch and keeps tearing up the bearings in the output shaft. Any ideas why?  It's a race ready one from EC.
Heymowers,

   When I saw the title of this Post, I clicked on it to see if I could help (turns out it may not be a transmission problem...), only to read that this is not a Peerless 700 transmission but an EC clone.  If you want help on a 700 Peerless, that's fine, but if you want help on an EC clone, say so -- don't say it's a Peerless.  Solutions to problems with either or both may be similar, but be accurate in the Post title and specify up-front which you have.

Need new shift keys.  He may also have rounded the insides of the gears. If you shift any of them, even a Peerless, you have the same problems.
Steven,

   George is correct. Especially if you shift without declutching.  Also check the edges of the slots in the shift shaft where the keys move back and forth.  Replace any questionable parts.

Willis,

   Define "pulley swap": What sizes?  Have you done anything to the transaxle inside, or is it stock?  Do you still have Reverse?  Did it whine prior to the pulley swap?

12  For Sale / Trannys / Axles / Wheels / Re: New Genuine Peerless 700 Tranny's Built for Mower Racing on: July 09, 2014, 03:02:15 PM
Heymowers,

   This is a genuine, Made-in-the-USA, Model 700-139 transmission from the Peerless factory in Salem, Indiana.  It is engineered and constructed specifically for racers and just became available on 26 March 2014.
 
   Direct from Peerless:  
1.  ALL the gears in this transmission are heat-treated steel.  
2.  It has the needle thrust bearing under the input-shaft pinion, and it has the sealed ball bearings (not roller bearings) on both ends of the shifter shaft.
3.  The shifter shaft sticks out both sides, and has the fine splines on both ends.
4.  There is no Reverse and no brake.
5.  "Shipped With No Lubrication and No Warranty"
6.  It is a 3-speed with the following ratios --
   Input - 3.00:1 (14T:42T)
   1st - 2.33:1 (15T:35T) -- Overall - 7.00:1
   2nd - 1.17:1 (23T:27T) -- Overall - 3.52:1
   3rd - 1:1 (25T:25T -- not "35T") -- Overall - 3.00:1
7.  Standard 5/8" x 1-3/16" keyed-&-snap-ringed input shaft.
8.  Two-flat-with-round-ends (not square) shift-shaft top.
9.  The Part Number is 799055.  MSRP is $418.85, so Bob's $275.00 price is a bargain!
10.  There are spacers on the shafts where 4th and 5th would normally be.  If you want to add speeds to your transmission, you can remove the spacer(s) and add one or two more of your choice.

  Careful!  Read Reply #35 on the http://www.heymow.com/index.php?topic=14202.30 Post.  The 820-005 transaxle is a 'B'-Input transaxle.  It also has a very long left axle which, at 39" overall end-to-end length, would work well on a wide-track racer, rules permitting.  It is also a fairly close-ratio transaxle (same Post, Reply #12), making it good for racing...or just to buy for the gears in it, for building an 'A'-Input 820.
