Peerless Tranny Question

I own a very old Lesco 48" Walk Behind that I purchased in '92. I'm Scottish and don't part with old equipment well. I need to replace the original Peerless 700-022, and it appears that the 700-013 or 700-023 both are substitutes. Does anyone have experience or an opinion on which would be the best replacement unit for that mower? The mower is used only for my home.

Make sure the spline count is correct. Meaning on the couplers they had to different counts.

The oldest Lesco in our fleet is a 93 which takes a 700- 079 which is a 5-speed with 9 spline transmission. Now as far as I know, as long as it is a 5 speed with 9 splines, it will match up, as long as your machine is a 5 spline jackshaft and coupler. I believe this is the same one that Exmark use. If you don't know which spline you have, you will have to take the jackshaft assembly off to check it.
