    So I know there are lots of threads about the old style Deck Gear Boxes for walker mowers.. The VonRuden. I have a cast iron Von Ruden now but I have an issue with the Left side Blade Gear Drive. Of-course the dealer says I will have to spend 1100.00 to upgrade to the new Gearbox (peerless) :hammerhead: Can someone tell me if they have any spare Vonruden parts. Or can you tell me what I all need to purchase to upgrade to the new Peerless Gearbox.

    I have look through many threads but have had no luck.
