Well, the thing about the peerless transaxle thing doesnt sit well with me... if you look right behind the dash it looks like the shift pattern is off...
Ya I noticed that the shifter looks a bit different from other G11xl-G14xl tractors.I have an idea of what is going on there.Do you have any pics of the gear selector area?
Here are a couple pics of a G12xl.And I blew up the shifter erea on yours.I think it has a shifter lockout plate on it I'm not 100% sure but it does follow the shift pattern for 4th and 2nd.
The only thing I don't like about the older Peerless 4 speed transaxles is,if the detent ball spring for 2nd gear goes flat then it will not stay in 2nd gear and if you mow in tight spaces you are going to have to mow in granny gear.
My MTD Fourteen Hundred and John Deere 112 both have the same transaxle.The 1400 won't stay in mowing gear but the green machine does.
