Alright, I think I know the model Peerless found in the 4 speed Springfields/Toros to be a model 2301-A. So now the hunt is on to determine if ANY other brand used that specific model of Peerless. So what I need from you guys, is simple, review your manual, crawl under your 4 speed Peerless driven tractors, find those model numbers. I do not plan to cabbage the transaxles out of your tractors, just out of parts tractors. Any help is appreciated. I would need to know the make and model of each tractor investigated, and the results of your findings. This thread could become useful to other guys having similar issues with locating replacement transaxles. I will start with one of mine and that will give everyone a sample format.

GE Elec-Trak E-20 has Peerless 2318.

Good luck guys, and enjoy your research. Thank you.

The Ford/Jacobsen 10-12HP gear drives used the 2306A Peerless. Not sure of the difference from a 2301A.

I can verify it is a 3 speed and not ground engagement rated. I'm pretty sure that makes it not a 23xx series. I do need to look at the MF 10-12 transmission, as that is a peerless four speed.

Ok, I went out and checked on my MF-10:

MF-10 has a Peerless 2309

The tranny Casey is asking about ( I believe ) is from an 8 HP Springfield. It has 3 forward speeds and one reverse. The 10 has 4 forward and one reverse.

Ok, I will check my mf8, but I was going by what he wrote in his initial post : 4 speed. I'll be back (add your own Terminator effects here)

Casey, I can tell you that Wheel Horse did not use that model of Peerless Trans. in any of their tractors.

The 3 speed Peerless is a 1700, I want to find more 2301-a Peerless since those are 4 speed and more stout. I know WH never used Peerless, so mostly looking at Massey, Deere, and others with Peerless transaxles.

Learning more about 2300 transaxles every day. I have found out a source for the left axle housing on the Springfield version of a 2300. Elec Trac 2318 has the proper housing on both sides, so no match on the Springfield right housing yet. If I can find a version of the 2300 that has the brake on the right hand side and the drive pulley on the left I will be so close to making my own 2301-A's out of hodge podges lol.
