Identifying Lawn Mower Transmissions
« on: May 22, 2006, 01:17:33 AM »
Per Upgrade302's request I'm going to start this thread off with pictures of what I have on hand to help in the identification of Transmissions and Transaxles. The rest of you are going to have to fill in the gaps here guys!

Squidd get your camera out, and tell Sami to start dragging Trannies out!

Lets try and find all the more popular transmissions, point out their identifying features, locations of model numbers, parts breakdowns, etc., etc.

Peerless Model 700 - 5 forward gears with Reverse.



The arrow of course points to the identification tag which includes the model number.



Both sides look essentially the same, except the ouput shaft will stick out one or the other, and yes the output shaft may be out either side dependent upon application.

Dug this one out of an ancient Craftsman rear engine.

Foote model 4010 After 79 Transaxle - 3 speed w/Reverse

Not known to stay together real well for racing unfortunately!!




Once again the mysterious red arrow, which you probably won't find on one in the field points to what you may think is the model number located conveniently on the bottom of the Transaxle! However as Dynamark is about to point out below.... this is the part number for the lower half of the case!  



....

....

If anyone knows where there's a parts breakdown for these available on the web drop me a line and I'll include a link here for it.

Thanks Dynamark for the parts link and correcting the error in what I suspected was the model number!!


This one came out of an early 80's Craftsman.

Should anyone be dying to get their hands on one of these puppies, let me know! I'm tired of trippin over it in the garage. It can be yours for freight and a half case of Budweiser!  8)

Do have another Three Speed Foote Tranny...Need to pull it out to get good pics...Will save this "space" for complete layout when I get it out...

Sami is running one in her J/P ...My understandingis they are a bit weak for full out racing, but for a "goverened" class should hold up...We'll see..

In the words of the G-Man... that one is easy to tell, Foote is the only one that stamps the shift pattern on top of the tranny that's gonna be buried under sheet metal! He said he has a few guys that love those for use on meat grinders, so it went in storage on the back porch should you need another spare.

I also noticed on the other foote transaxle up there that stamping the part number on the bottom of the case to confuse heck out of you is a common trait, but your's didn't come with the pretty red arrow!  :D

So that's where the tag is on the 800s...... IDIOTS!
I never even thought to look behind the brake disc on mine for it because it's a stupid place to put it.

Ah well. Good to know exactly the model of what I'm running now at least. Thanks.
