I have a leaking oil seal on the drive shaft of my; white 16HP garden tractor  1974?  transaxle. Just wondering if anyone has changed these seals before and where they purchased the seal. I was to my local small engine dealer and they said the oil seal was discontinued. Pictures of shaft and transaxle provided.

That looks a lot like the peerless 2315 transaxle in my MTD 143-960 garden tractor.  If so, the part number is 788025 and it is discontinued.  I just did a Google for "peerless part 788025" and found at least one place that claims to have it (SWI TURF).  Try that and see what you can find.

looks like a peerless 2300 series there should be the model of the unit stamped on the center of the case somewhere.

I stock the seals as well as complete gasket and seal kits for these if needed

Thanks all for the replies. I cleaned up transaxle and found the tag with model (picture attached)

DR. Bolens, if you have a seal for this unit I would be willing to purchase one.

Looks like whatever goes onto the shaft was rubbing on the seal and transaxle case which would create heat and debris that may have been why the seal failed - you may want to check to make sure that what goes on the input shaft is not putting undue pressure against the transaxle case - just a suggestion so that the replacement seal does not end up failing.
