noisy 214 transaxle

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.

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

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:

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

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.

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.
