Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Do you have the Peerless model number from the side of the transmission housing? Have you tried any of your local small engine or lawn equipment repair shops?

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

There should also be some other letters in front of the model number that you have provided. If you can provide these additional letters I may be able to assist you with additional information.

Thank you for the additional information. I am going to see what else I can find for you as far as replacement transmission and/or parts to repair your transmission. This may take me a little while to research but as soon as I have more information for you I will post it and let you know.

The only thing that I have found so far is a complete replacement transmission that is available. Here is a link to what I have found thus far.
