When I got this tractor was told trany locks up and was full of water, when I picked it up in Jan. the wheels didn't turn, we assumed it was frozen. Got it home drained trany in heated garage, not much water came out, must of been locked up.
Pulled trany apart tonight found rusty oily mess inside, 1 shifter fork detent not working, broken spring. Found a suitable replacement cut to length and fixed that problem. Also found the shifter stop broken, in 2 pieces and bent. I think it can be welded back together but I'm not sure exactly what it's suppose to look like. Tomorrow I will pull apart my spare transaxle and see if it has a good shifter stop in it, this trany is said to pop out of 2nd gear, I'm thinking maybe detent not working on 1 of the shifter forks same as my 66 trany. If I'm lucky I can fix both transaxles.
Found really good Peerless trany service manual on another web site lots of pic.
