Notice the missing gear on the 3 gear cluster and banged up edges of the idler.

Looks like someone was speed shifting.

That is actually more common than you think. I had a 110H that was making noise and when I disassembled the trans bingo same scenario. I went to a local used GT man and picked up another Peerless trans and low and behold when I went to inspect the tranny I found another cluster with broken gears ...

Boy that is a mess. There must have been a lot of metal lying around in the bottom of the case. Thanks for the photos!

This same thing happened to my Fathers mf10 25 years ago. The culprit was a broken detent spring that allowed the trans to go into 2 gears at once, stripping the smaller gear. Back then he just ordered a new gear but didn't realize the cause until a week later when it happened again. I believe both times it happened while mowing a bumpy side hill (ditch) which must have helped the shift fork that was in the neutral slide into gear. Please check the detent balls and springs and let us know there condition, I'm curious if they where the cause. If you can't find a replacement gear let me know, I've got a bucket of peerless 2300 parts. Thanks for the pics and good luck getting it going.

Yes it was a mess. You can read the whole story in previous threads.

Here's a condensed version. Take one bad detente spring, add an out of adjustment clutch pedal (the brake was not engaged at the bottom position), plus a lack of knowledge of shifting = 2 ground up gears and $250 in parts.

All is back together and running as you can see in picture #3. Tractorholic, thanks for the parts offer. Maybe I'll call you in the future since I'm not far away from Rochester.
