Any-body have any luck lately finding parts for our Peerless 2800 gearbox (2000) rpm rear pto' . In particular ; I'm searching for the input shaft Part # 776215A or (B) . This seems to be an effort in futility for me , and I'm usually pretty good at finding things . Has the whole Tecumseh thing (going out of business)- totally dried up any options other than custom making ??
In particular ; The input splines on mine are worn past my comfort level . I was thinking building the area up with welding , then maybe fit with a taper coupling/flange with bolt through the shaft .

I must admit - I haven't tried my John Deere dealer yet , so don't know what they might have . I guess maybe one of them could have something . I will call them also .

Any input welcome : Dave

Thanks Darrin - I've used them before (Parts Tree) , but it seems they take forever ,then email you that the part (S) is not available . Haven't tried ordering this particular part , but others I've tried , didn't have much luck . Too old I guess . Not me ,(the part)!

Rey -

Yes they did [Peerless 2800-004]-(not hex shaft , but 6 spline X 1 3/8 " round ), but it was only offered for the 1800 Utility vehicle . Will work on our 318s' thru 430s' , and is a direct bolt and go , save for and the mile and a half long shaft . I'm having one cut down as we speak to fit up on my 420 . See Thread "540 rear PTO on a 420" in this same category /

Wow - just called my local dealer , and they want 153 dollars for that input shaft !! May have to break out the J-B weld and the Hay-seed engineering book for this one !

Went to parts tree and put theirs in my cart @ 87 bucks for now ..., we'll see later if it's available .

Thanks all , for the info ; Dave

Where did you get the gear box? Just called my dealer and he said it was no longer available.

To get all fitted up with new parts from Deere is gonna cost about 275 dollars because the new style input shaft requires the new style PTO flange coupler AM103498 @ 116 + tax . The hay-seed engineering handbook + J-B weld is still an option in my mind . Deere does show both pieces available , so that is a good thing , just pricey .

Thanks : Dave

David,
I contacted a place out of Alabama that may be able to get the whole case assembly. For around $400. Still waiting for them to call back.

Glad to know the internals are available. If I can get a good case I'm just going to make one. I did this with my 332 couldnt afford to going market prices so I got a blown up one and built it up from there.
Got any pictures of the buildup?

Micheal - My build up is basically grafting 3 into 1 type thing . First I found one on CL that had a broken case lower mount arm , but every-thing else was perfect . Next I posted an ad here for a parts unit , where Brother Jeff Reichman was kind enough to answer to my needs , then another CL posters' ad was answered for my third donor .

So I ended up with 3 units with all sorts of problems : They varied from a broken housing , a broken output shaft receptacle , to the common (old style) input shaft worn at spline / coupler . Deere or Peerless redesigned this input shaft / coupler interface with the new tapered & bolted together coupler , and that is the only one available now . Part #s' input gearshaft=m71724 ($153.00)flange coupler=AM103498 ($116.00). So 275 bills just to renew input shaft . They will also let you buy the bolt and washer too from them . No thanks , I'll do fine . I don't think these are gonna get any cheaper either as time goes on , and peoples stuff starts wearing out .., so I guess the only thing to do if you need parts is get'em while you can and while they're at the lowest cost ..., in the here and now . I will probably end up with some spare parts maybe when I'm done , if I ever .., So you know . Hope you don't have to buy that output shaft either , Ouch . As a caviat , In the three or four I've examined , never have I seen any unusual wear on the gearing or internals of the units'.; So they appear to be preeeety robust as far as design engineering goes .

Pictures will be coming on this one .., it's on the back-burner while I'm on the 540 rpm gearbox thingy in another post .

Thanks for the interest ; Dave

Up-date -

Bit the bullet , ordered the revised (bolt through tapered hub that should never experience any wear) , gearbox input-shaft/flange coupler from my local Deere dealer . OUCH
@275 approx. + sams'cut . They said still available , we'll see . I went to Deere because I wanted to be sure I was getting Deeres' revised 'heavy-duty' taper & bolt thru version .
Seems that on the Peerless diagrams , they showed two different input gear shafts , but only one part no . , and it appeared that was for the straight splined slip-fit(old style) version . I wanted to make sure I didn't end up with that one . My dealer assured that the parts were the 'new and improved' parts I speak of .

Thanks to all that have contributed : Dave


Ps. I plan on posting detailed pictures showing the difference between the two (old v: new) versions , just in case any one is unsure (as I was) on this aspect of the basic unit .

new v old . new shaft is 3/8" shorter on the coupler end .


Glad I went ahead and ordered this bolt now , because it is high grade 8-or-9 , plus is left handed threads Only $1.45 so it was cheaper than I could source it . Washer showed NLA , so I get to try to figure out if they use a specific profile washer or what . I'm thinking a thick concave maybe .


old worn out coupling hub


New taper-lock coupler hub


Over-all finished material was not the normal John Deere fit and finish that I have been used to expecting ; nothing major , but looked like that disc material had been drug under a fork lift wheel on asphalt , next to zero paint ad-hession . There's no telling who Deere farmed this piece out to make . No Biggy , purely cosmetic .., Just saying - Gheez.

Well I'm off to see if I can find the other pieces to get it all built .
