I'm using a peerless 806 in my mini truck and want to lock the diff. Is there a way I can just install a solid 3/4 rod threw the trans.


Also what gear box is comparable to a 800 searies. My lifted tractor has a spicer 600 and would really like to convert it to a gear box and utilize the chain drive.

You could do that with your banana peeler 806  lol! 

I've seen a pic of someone who uses a solid rod straight through and welds two more rods to it in order to connect to the bull gear.

This should help with the solid axle conversion.

I have no clue on axle compatibility (gear wise right??) But with your lifted mower you can run a peerless 700 (with mods to the gearbox for less change of breaking) and chain to a live axle

I liked that thread feet infermation. I'll be sure to do that next time I am I a trans but I would put a piece of flat stock to fill the gaps and aid in support. As for my lifted. I've never worked with a 700 so I didn't even know where to start. I would like to keep a decent low gear and still have enough high gear for a little speed so I guess a little better then stock but not racer speed. Any help would be great

Just to get a feel for them
Peelers 806 help Dscf0110

They use sprockets too so you can change speed through the pulleys and sprockets (recommended sprockets so you arnt over speeding the gearbox) and they have a decent range id say. depends on your top speed. They arnt super super strong, but redzz02 on here and youtube, he made a lifted mower with a 700 configuration. You can do things like use all the mounting holes (even the ones on top of the gearbox) brace the input shaft (aluminum sleeve that hubs the input shaft) and oil fill it to prolong the life of the gearbox.... other options for your lifted mower too, just providing this option.

Where is the gear selector located ? And how many gears? I'm running mine with stock motor pulley. On inch down on trans pully becuase I needed a little more speed. I want to get away from transaxle due to the only way to increas speed is increas the input speed. I like the idea of a chain drive so I can just change a gear to get what I want. I need to be able to have a top speed of about 10 mph with 26 inch tires. Not even sure where to begin gear wise.

It isnt unusual to see them in 3, 4, and 5 speed configurations. Gear selector in this picture is on the flat top, bottom left, under the hose vent. (not stock vent is for oil filled)

In your situation id look for a peerless 820, very strong, 1" axles, and full bearings so you shouldn't have to worry about over-speeding it. It would go along with your current setup, some small mods. Its nothing like a 700 conversion, you need the gearbox, mounting plate, live axle (kart axle) pillow blocks, chain, sprockets, brakes (im guessing) smaller belt, etc. Not to mention the amount of work seems like a lot, cutting and clearing a spot for the gearbox, mounts for the axle, smaller belt, chain routing and tentioners, new shifter, hole bunch of things. Probably come in over $150-200 if you dont have parts already.

You can find a brand new peerless 820 for less then that, just need new wheel hubs to work with your rims because of the 1" axles, and re do some stuff like shifter, brakes, extended input shaft to accommodate it.

See now, that's where my opinion differs. I'd rather use a 700 there. Pick an axle shaft as beefy as you need (How does 1 1/4" grab you?), mount the gearbox up high, and run a chain. Lots of ratio selectability, AND it allows you to mount the box wherever you like. Does NOT have to be directly above the axle. It can be shifted forward, rearward, even offset to one side. In using the live axle, width is only a matter of your needs, and you can locate the support bearings as far out as possible. A clear winner, IMO.

How's your budget? E.C. Carburetors sells them new, and race prepped. On the used maket, try keeping an eye out for RER's (Rear-engined riders) and some larger tillers and even snowblowers.

That would be glens, in shelby, about 10 min from me. 50 bucks. I've mentioned it here before. Search glens surplus, they have them on website.
