James W :

Greetings, My name is***** and I am here to help the best I can. My goal is 100% satisfaction. Let's get started.

James W :

The 6292 P1 is a shifting lubrication part number and is of no real help

James W :

It was used in a LOT of peerless transmission as well as others

James W :

was there a metal TAG on the case some where?

James W :

normally, there is a tag the is rivited on the tranmission case with numbers that are embossed or pressed into the metal tag

James W :

One model of the IC 40 was 40907x20A

James W :

this may gice us a transmission lead

Customer:

No metal tag on casing unfortunately

James W :

was yours made about 1995 with a 12.5HP mower

James W :

engine, I mean

Customer:

Not sure I would say around that time, I can go and check on the mower and see if there is a data plate on it

James W :

look at this breakdown and see if it looks like yours

James W :

there normally is a model number of the tractor either under the seat

James W :

or on the back of the tractor under the skirt of the unit near the battery

Customer:

No fan on the one I have. The shaft on the fork is 6.375" long

James W :

My diagram did not help because it said transaxle was not available at all and gave no other info

James W :

I will have to have you look for the exact model number of your tractor

Customer:

I am trying to indentify the correct shaft rod and fork for my gearbox.

James W :

And IF i can find a brand, and breakdown, then I may be able to help

James W :

Problem is Murray has been out of business for some time

James W :

And many transmission manufacturers have gone by the wayside too

Customer:

It is a Tecumseh/Peerless gearbox/axle

James W :

peerless was owned by tecumseh, but tecumseh went out

James W :

peerless was sold to ayp, but a lot of the tech info was not transferred (some was)

Customer:

Do you want me to leave it with you and I will go and have a look on the mower to see if there is clues on date of manufacture?

James W :

I have jumped to a different subject

James W :

the tecumseh peerless complete service manual

James W :

I just sent you as a bonus

James W :

has a diagram showing exactly where the tag or where in the case

Customer:

I have already looked at the manual unable identify 100% that it is correct part. Possibly the 205-527 Series but needs to have 6.375" shaft

James W :

the model ID info will be for all transmission

James W :

Which manual did you look at?

James W :

Are you talking about what is on page 9?

Customer:

Part No 784379 or 784355 possible but cannot assert the length of the shaft from diagram.

Customer:

I looked 205-527D

Customer:

Tag No 10

James W :

looking

Customer:

Thanks

James W :

Are you saying you found 205-257D on the transmission now?

Customer:

No it was in that Small Engines Suppliers Manual

James W :

OK, I am going to have to work on this a bit more off line

James W :

I will also opt out to allow other experts to work on it too

James W :

do not hit accept yet

James W :

because that will remove incentive for any other experts to try to help

James W :

35 pairs of eyes is better than one

Customer:

OK I will go and see if I can a date of manufacture on the mower

James W :

More important is the exact model number

James W :

do you have the transmision out?

James W :

More Importantly, for everyone involved, what you are looking to do is

James W :

You are trying to indentify the correct shaft rod and fork for your gearbox.

Technician: James W, Small Engine Troubleshooting Expert replied 6 years ago

This is the part number YOU provided to me 784379

It may be used on several gearboxes, but

there is no "where used info"

I assumed that you had the breakdown and that is where you got the numbers

I provided the photo to help you locate and measure to veriify confirm, or refute your theory.
