Lary

Have you checked the transmission section of the manuals area. There is a 2300 series repair manual and a parts list. I'm not sure how close this will get you to the 2333 in your 214. You can also go to jdparts.com and see if they have the parts diagrams there.

Got it.

Thanks Brian. The 2300 manual appears to be the same as the section in the larger Peerless manual, which I had already downloaded.

The 4 speed peerless used in the 200 series is the same 4 speed used in the RF110/112 and Flat fender 110/112. The only difference is the pulleys and other items that attach.

Take my advice on this - fix it before it gets worse. I am in the process of a transaxle swap because I lost teeth on 4 different gears when it the transaxle jammed in 3 and reverse. I went with a used transaxle to save money. One of the main cluster gears costs $140 from Deere. :bash:

140$ Ouch that bites!! A used tranny would no doubt be cheaper as well as easier if there is much damage.

I wouldn't recommend buying an used transmission - it may be the same or worse condition than what you got. The problem lies in just what we see here, driving the tractor until severe damage is done. Buying an used transmission isn't the answer as that transmission may have went through a similar scenario, and probably did. Best way to go is to fix the transmission you got and you will get another 30 to 40 years service. You will have good new parts. And repairing these transmissions are relatively easy.

BTW, WFM is weekendfreedommachines.com - one of the oldest John Deere lawn and garden site on the web.

TMO, what takes you 20' takes me 4 hours. I got the transaxle off the tractor and split it open. So far, it looks like I need to replace the smallest gear of the 3 gear cluster.

The weekend freedom machines site is very helpful. After spending some time there, I feel like I know enough to do this.

Thanks for your help.

Larry

So I definitely need to replace the 3 gear cluster and the shifter spring/balls. I will probably replace the reverse idler gear, since the bevels are somewhat banged up. I'm looking at $140 for the cluster, another 12 for the idler gear, plus gaskets and seals.

That doesn't sound bad, around 200$. I thought the gears were 140 each.
