Toro 30165 won't move

Bought this older model mower. Was operating properly then started acting up. Wouldn't get up inclines. I replaced the trans belt because it was at max adjustment. That wasn't it. It seems like the brakes lock up when you attempt to use mower by t bar. Should I pull the top half of tyrannie off? Peerless700-039. Does have some chattering inside transmission and large pulley wobbles quite a bit.

You can pull it apart and I'm sure you will find a bunch of worn parts and chipped teeth. Check Fleabay for a new on for about 150.

is there any other peerless that would interchange directly with the 700-039 36 spline to increase my odds of getting one?

If the large pulley right underneath the transmission is wobbling you have a problem most likely requiring the transmission's replacement.
Oh, it's a job, especially on an older mower...

Yes but it's going to cost you:

There's an aftermarket 700-039 here, not sure on the splines...

Honestly, I would see about getting a 9-spline tranny...
And the two couplings, and outer half shafts to go with it.

Sure it will cost a little more but this problem won't come back to bite you in the butt when the splines strip down the road.
This whole bit with the 36 fine spline is an issue which, if there's ever a time to address it, now would be good...

All my mowers have 9 spline transmissions.
Been that way for a long time.

Progress Update:
Removed transmission cover and everything was surprisingly intact considering its age. I removed the trans belt idler pulley and ground a slot back thru the washer the previous owner welded to the deck. i then drilled a hole further back on the adjustment area and ground the slot longer to meet the drilled area. i had to do this because they sell a 1/2" x 40" belt now not the 39 1/2" it originally came with. tractor supply sells a 39" belt but i had already purchased the other so i just made the adjustment slot longer. tightened the belt and now it works great.

So the pulley wobble was in the pulley and not shaft.

no the pulley wobble is probably the bearings where the pulley shaft goes through the transmission. for that i would have to pull the transmission to press new bearing in there and i am hoping to make it thru the season first. i am a one man operation and do mostly charity work for cancer patients and this is my only walk behind besides 22" mowers.
