My mother-in-law has a Husqvarna mower with a Peerless H2000-006A
SilentTrac transmission. It stopped moving so she replaced the drive
belt. This did not fix her problem. I cleaned the exterior of the
transmission and it will not go into gear. There does not seem to be
any exterior mechanical problem with the transmission and everthing on
the outside is working correctly.
here is a rubber plug which I suspect is for oil. I would like to
replace the oil.
What type of oil is used in this unit?
Is there a replacement kit for servicing the unit?
Is there anything else that can be replaced on the transmission?
Is there anything else that could be the likely cause of the problem?
The coupling that connects the pump to the gearbox is the most likely probl
em. Requires separating the two units. Special tool required to re-assemb
le. Coupling is less than $20 but tool is about $40. Gearbox uses 85w90 g
ear oil, pump uses 10w40 synthetic.
I have a Craftsman Lawn Tractor (model 944.604880) with a hydro-static
transmission (Peerless 2000-006A). Last summer, reverse seemed to operate
slower than I recalled and this spring, I seem to have lost reverse. Forward
works fine, but when moving the lever to reverse, it will not go all the way
back and only moves for a few inches before stopping and making a noise. If I
keep driving it forward and periodically trying reverse, it will work in reverse
normally again but the problem returns after rest.
Could this simply be low fluid level in the pump or transaxle?
