I bought this beautiful gem from Mark is Wisconsin. He is a great guy and ships awsome

This came to me not running and a broken trans. The trans poo fork needed to be re aligned. The p.o before mark had the clutch adjusted way out of whack and the trans would not stop spinning so I think the forced it in gear and caused the issue. So that's all fixed. I am missing the 3 long screws that bolt the filter to the carb. Also missing the carriage bolts for the wheel weights. The carb needs rebuilt or run some seafoam.

I am having problems with the plow. The angle handle hit the foot rest and pto. It is is not bent. What's going on?

Plow might be off of a newer 1200 or equivalent with electric pto and the longer narrow foot rests.

 

Here's a 1200 with a plow.

The handle may be right.
You pull it out to the left, and move it forward or back to angle the blade.
Then, return it to that position to resume plowing.
I say try it and see!

The handle won't lock all the way. I believe you guys are right the the plow was for the running board tractor with electric pto. I can make a longer handle and make it work with new linkages

Maybe heat it just above where the brace is welded to the tube and bend it out 2 inches then bend it back in 2 inches just above the foot boards?

 

It will look Like the bends in your PTO leaver.Shouldn't hurt anything other than the paint on the leaver and maybe the spring if you get that hot enough.Where is spring for the handle on these?You don't want to heat the spring.

Today was a productive day. I replaced a headlight and a fuse for the switch so my headlights work. I got the fasteners for the airfilter assembly to carb and got that installed. Wheels weights are painted and installed with new hardware.

The plow handle is is universal and all I had to do was install it back on opposite of what was done so my plow is now working like it should.

My problem now is the transmission. I thinks the original owners had the clutch out of whack for so long that they permanently messed it up. Pops out of 3 and 4th won't stay in no matter what. I am on the look out for 2 more transmissions for this one and the moline 108. I have to broken transmissions here so I might try to build one

Ok, I changed all the trans fluids and it shifts flawlessly. But now pops out of all the gears but 1st and reverse. If I hold it into gear is works great. Anyone interested in rebuilding my trans?

I Hate those old 4 speed peerless 2300 transaxles.My old Ford 100,MTD 1400,Case 210 and JD 110 all had them and none of them would stay in 2nd gear.1st gear is considered Lo range.

 

 

I think the 2 Detent ball springs on every one of them was flat or broken or just plain old worn out.More than likely rusted and fell apart.

 

Parts list for Peerless 2300.

Looks like they used to sell the whole Shift Rod assembly.That would be nice to find.
