Just finished installing the repaired transaxle back into the JD212 that I traded to Brian (TD&H). Had the right axle snapped off clean right behind the spider gear in the diff. Put a couple new seals in also. Just took it for a spin & all is working perfectly! Just running off jumper box, so hood has to stay up.
Here's a video of a short run in high gear.

Dan,
I have been into a couple of these 2300 Peerless transmissions. Since you had to replace an axle, did you replace the detent springs in the shifter forks? The most common problems in these transmissions is a weak or broken detent spring in the shifter fork, which will cause the transmission to slip and if not corrected, will damage the gears. The springs are cheap and can save a more expensive repair down the road.

As for the axle breaking, I picked up a free 210 a few years back that had a busted axle also. Yours and mine are the only ones I heard of having a busted axle. Easy fix, and a good excuse to replace seals, detent springs, check the condition of the gears, etc.

I looked at the detent springs & they looked fine. All gears looked good as well.

:dancingbanana:WOW Daniel, That thing runs great. I am very happy with the way it sounds and runs. THANKS SO MUCH for going through the Trans-axle for me. Dad is going to be very surprised when he gets this 212 to go along with his 214.:worshippy1:

I recently got a L130 to replace the Lt110 i have that won't climb hills anymore and is slow, I'm sure I'm going to have the same problems with the 130 as i had with the 110 unless i do a k66 upgrade. Where does this trans axle come from? I can buy an upgrade kit for a mere $1600 but you know if i can figure out what it came in I can get one and do it myself for a lot less money does any one know what model came with this K66.

i bought a l130 when they first hit the market and used it for four years sold it two years ago and that guy is still using it . i mowed hills ditches weed taller than the mower and never had any trouble with it . you just have to remember its not its not a heavy built garden tractor and its not going to take the abuse like one . but if you take your time and dont ram around it will last along time .i also kept it clean and never let grass build up on the trans axle so it would stay as cool as i possibly could keep it .
