The actual Peerless "017 conversion" parts have been discontinued.
There are some other lock up type options out there, or find someone who has all the parts who is willing to sell them.

Being one of the few who have actually ran both, the 820 will be easier with change of pullies, vs. chains and sprockets.
The 820 is also in my opinion more effiecient at getting the power to the ground and much more durable.
I used to change/break keys in the 700 on a regular basis with a single cylinder. With the 820, that was a thing of the past.
Even with stout v-twins, they were changed once a year, only as maintenance.
Unless forced by rules or gunpoint, I would never consider using a 700 again as long as I could obtain an 820.

I think it used to be $75 for an overhaul on them, but don't quote me on that.

I would do the machining in your least favorite neighbors garage in event of fire.
Problem solved.
It's what I do.

Pfftt. The government.
Big snow in big cities does present a whole set of problems though.

Funny, Bert always told me they don't get snow in bigger cities. He also is surprised to find I have electricity where I live.

We had over 12" on the ground, then we got rain a couple weeks later.
Last week we had high temps around -4, now we are in the 20's.
I would say there is about 8" on the ground here right now.

Living in Wisconsin my whole life, I would rather deal with 12" of snow in a 24 hour period, than have it be -20 for 3 weeks straight like we did a couple winters ago.

Some of the cases are closed off on the countershaft where the factory brake would mount. If that were the case, you would need a countershaft that does not extend out the side of the case.

There are some that use bearings vs. bushings for the output and/or countershaft. These are not as common.

For the most part, the big differences were all in the internals. Gear sets and number of gears.

If you have a case that is open on the ends for both shafts, and uses bushings, it is interchangeable with any other case that is open on both shaft ends. If it is closed off on the countershaft, they are also interchangeable provided you have a countershaft that does not have a factory brake mounting provision. Or, chuck it in a lathe and cut the brake mounting splines off.

Do not use the gray steel bushings. Use the bronze bushings.

Brodix?  bigsmile

Back in the day, when I was younger and much dumber and had one of those icky Briggs engines, I had a cylinder head done by G, and it never let me down.

Owen, I knoe Dennis Kirk lists a number of ITP brand beadlocks that fit the metric pattern. I never used them on a mower, but had an ATV with ITP wheels, and I couldnt destroy them.

Buying a mower or a flywheel?

I know many use the metric patterns, but I do not know of a single ATV that uses the 4 on 4" pattern.

Type in hood strap. Comes up with a bunch of different styles.
I have always had good service with them.

Yes, I actually found the other bracket, so they both had both coil brackets.
And I still have one.
