I'm about 90 percent positive the keys from the 800 series will work. Not so sure about a 900.

Really?? That's interesting. What's different about them George? I know I can put gears out of an 800 into a 700 but I'm curious on the keys now that you corrected me.

And 900 series shift keys are too long.

If it has blades I'm not interested.

OK just looked them up 700 are the same as some 801 transaxles. mine are 820's so to say the 800's will fit is incorrect there are many 800 series. Clarify which 800 is being referred to. And according to my parts program for tecumseh the 801's is it.

Speaking about shift keys what's the best place to buy them, and other 700 parts? Thawley69 Where are you getting your parts?

I guess I should have been more clear.
When I said the 800's I meant thee "800/801 series" not the "820 series".

The "800/801 series" are the same.

Part Number used to be 792089A but I think that is superseded now?

Thinking of seeing if ones from a 920 can be made to work. They are about .5 inch longer and with some modifications to the shift fan I think I can get them to work.

Now I do replace the input and bevel gear with steel gears, if the rest are not steel no biggie,

Excellent post, thanks for the very useful info! I am slowly plugging away at my project, and just tonight tore down my 700 for inspection and prep. However- how do I tell if I have the right gears (see quote above)? IF I understand things right, my gears could be steel, and they could be something else, maybe sintered. I put a magnet to my gears and it stuck, but that might work on sintered, too. So- how do I tell?

Also- what keeps the gear oil from drooling out between the output shaft and bushing (on both sides)? I see no mention of a seal there.

Thanks much!
