haha well its the thought that counts.

In other news: Peerless 600, the Hidden Destruction!

Some minor tooth damage.

Some of the gears are beveled on the sides, is this normal.

That's weird that your three countershaft gears are keyed to that shaft, the one in my MTD is a splined shaft. Hmm, must be a slightly different model. Also those shifter gears are supposed to be bevelled like that I think, but the countershaft gears are only bevelled on one side.

Or an earlier model.

Wonder how that destruction unfolded. Shouldn't those shafts be hardened? How do you chowder up a hardened shaft like that?

I think that's actually a common problem with the older style countershaft. I've heard about it happening a couple different times.
