I'm cleaning the transmission today and need to know what to look for as far as things that need replacing. I am surely going to replace the shift fork, as you can tell from the picture in previous post, because it is worn down a good bit.

Thank you, but I already have the cases split and the parts out. I just don't know what excessive west looks like because this is the first peerless I have messed with.

What do y'all think about Oregon or Stens Replacements belts instead of SCAG and RUSSO OEM Replacment Spindles?

Depends if you are going to use them or abuse them. Last year, one of our exmarks broke the big belt (June 2013), with in a month (July 2013) I had to replace it. I explained to the operator not to engage at full throttle, only at half throttle. That belt lasted to last Monday. (250 hours) Same operator, 1st day out cutting, he breaks that belt. Needless to say, we had another talk.

The original belt I replaced was OME, 700 hours plus before it broke. Now the other 4 exmarks, their Stens belts are lasting over 500 hours.....On our 8 WB, they are lasting over 1000 hours.
