I recently required an old Springfield GT with transaxle trouble. I would like to know what transaxle is in it?? I believe it is a Peerless 3 speed but dont know what model?? I need to find parts or a whole other transaxle. I believe it to be a 62 or 63?? It has a 7hp Briggs on it.. From what I read 7hp should of been a Kohler but this one has a Briggs?? Any help would be appreciated

Welcome to GTT. Download the manuals that you need from our Manuals Section. There is a group of transmission manuals that can help. Pics of your GT will help us see what you are talking about. Good Luck, Rick

Kind of looks like a peerless, I am a peerless dealer but we need to figure out what model it is, any numbers on the transmission itself?

Take a look at this

It is either a 1200 series or 2300 series?? I didnt see any numbers when I tore it apart, didnt look really close, I will be in garage tomorrow and will look closer. From other research I have done it should be a 3 speed which would make it a 1200 series??

I'm betting its the 1200 series as the 2300 was 4speed

 

I'll have to try and pull up a diagram somewhere, whats kinds of parts are you  possibly looking for?

If you have a 7hp B&S engine, then the engine was replaced at some point. 

 

All of the 7hp tractors had Kohler vertical shaft engines.  ....All of the 6hp tractors had B&S engines.

 

I may have an exploded view of the transmission parts, but it would have Springfield part numbers, not Peerless numbers.

It is definitely a Briggs, I just double checked.... Looks like it belongs on there??

Figured out someone had shift rods in upside down, fixed that but now the shift stop hits the gear?? Frustrating.... Wish someone else wouldnt have torn into it before I got it. I have tried to find a whole transaxle but no luck... Gonna have to fix this one somehow...
