Well, I picked it up today and actually it's a Peerless 2400. Doing some Googling I found out it's a hydrostatic transmission. It's missing the hydraulic pump part though. Can anyone eplain to me how exactly a hydrostatic transmission works?
What Is It?

Looks like it won't be easy to make this work, would need to find hydro pump and the drive pulley is vertical and haven't even mentioned the shifting linkage. I'm wonderiing if I can use the axle stubs and slide them over my existing one inch axles so I still have the bolted wheels? Then I would use my existing also 12" rear wheels as my front wheels.

I decided just to use the flanges and wheels, will bore out the flanges so I can slide them over my existing rear axles. Trying to make the reducing gear work will be quite a challenge, the drive pulley is vertical, I would need to find the hydro pump and probably some more parts and then I would have to figure out the shifting linkage. Now I'm thinking of fitting the tractor with four big wheels, looks awesome!

Does anyone knows what kind of hydrostatic pump I need for this? Hoping someone has a tractor with this rear axle and can show me pictures of the parts I need.

Here's a couple of videos describing how.
