i Need help with a JD 70 lawn tractor. I am rebuilding the Peerless 1206 transmission on the 70. I have had the axles welded and milled and purchased new bushings bearings etc. when I go to closing the case the large output gear keeps hitting the bolts joining the ring gear.Does anyone out there have any experience with this tranny. Or does anyone know if there is a peerless site that would be helpful. Thanks John

The casing has to be turned to get it back on. The instructions are here in this manual. http://gardentractor...icans-handbook/

If you can't download it here I believe it can be downloaded from the Peerless or tecumseh site. I have a 1200 series in my MF8 and remember reading about the reassembly instructions.
