    My scag walk behind had the same problem this spring. All it needed was new keys inside wich were only a few dollars a peice. My mechanic said its very common on peerless trannies.

    Peerless is Tecumseh. Take your number off the transmission (littel metal tag) to any Tecumseh dealer or service center and you can get parts. There is no "rebuild kit" to speak of. You just buy what parts you need.
