Drive line should be the same if they put the original variable pulley on the new engine, one would think ? Noel.

What does it have for a transaxle. Is it any bigger or stronger that the peerless 2500 series?

If it's a MF12H base, it has a Peerless 2400 final drive. The MF14/16's had the larger and much stronger 2-speed Peerless 2500's.

 

Don't let that scare you off, The 2400 is no wimp. Mine did some serious FEL work in the 9 years that I had it and never gave me even a hiccup.

Have no trouble with my Mf12 other than the bearings are getting noisy. I have a loader on mine. But mine is a geared transmission , not hydro. Noel

I was re examining the pics, zoomed in as much as I could, and it definately looks like the MF12. If it was a 14 or 16, I'd grab it in a heartbeat.

 

I'm looking for a spare for the Dozer, as the one that's in it needs a couple of bearings.

 

I have a geared trans in my LGT100 and it whines like a teenager. Still seems to work fine though.

I have a lgt 100 also and it whines too but works good. Just started it up today after sitting all winter. Worked good, drove it around for a bit. Felt great to drive it. Having some trouble with the belt slipping. Put a new belt on and adjusted the spring tension last year. Do you have any trouble with yours ? Noel.

My clutch seems to be a little slow to engage, but slippage hasn't been a problem so far. My biggest issue for what it's doing, is lack of traction. Although it is hooked up to the boat, which is a pretty hefty load. I fired mine up a couple of weeks ago to try and move the boat, and all it did was dig a set holes. I suspect the boat trailer was still froze to the ground at the time.
