Looking for more 4 speed series 2300 Peerless transaxles with left side drive input and right side brakes. I am on a mission to repair more Springfields and not many brands have the correct drive arrangement on their 4 speed Peerless, so I have to find the ones that do. Any help appreciated.

Casey, have you looked at the ratio between the drive shaft and the brake shaft? Seeing what you've written here, and thinking about manufacturing, I'm wondering if Peerless designed these to be interchangeable. Hmmm... after thinking about that statement, that would mean you wouldn't have brakes if the transmission is in neutral. Still, the same series of transmission, they wouldn't want to redesign too much. Any way to look at an IPL and spot if some parts simply interchange?

That should be the one used in MF 10s and 12s.

Ducky, from what he is saying, the Massey transaxles have the brake and drive inputs on the wrong side. That''s when I started wondering if there was a simple way to reverse the inputs from one side to the other. I checked my MF12 in another thread and it is a 2309.

I had someone check the manuels about changing the drive and brake from one side to the other and was told it would not work, I took his word for it and never went any farther with it. I think I have found the tranny I need close enough to go pick it up.
