It's a 920-030 Peerless. It had a loose axle. Upon disassembly I was surprised to find the axles were not supported with bearings but, then again I've never repaired a riding mower transaxle. I did discover there are provisions for axle bearings in the housing so, I took a few measurements with my caliper and went to the VXB Bearings website and this is what I found.

6203-2RS is a perfect fit if you have 3/4" axles.

SCE108 is the replacement for the pinion bearings.

I've also decided to use ThreeBond to seal the assembly and fill it differential lube rather than Bentinite grease.

Don't use Diff lube! That is only intended for full gear trannies with helical cut gears. That trans has straight cut gears and a drive chain, Fill it with the proper grease, John Deere "Corn Head" grease also works well for these, and seal the halves with HondaBond HT. Best sealant on the market. But, before you put the two halves back together, drill and tap a small hole in the underside of the case in the hump where the bull gear goes and install a grease fitting. Periodically give it a shot or two of plain old grease, will help keep the water out and keep things loose in there.

I am glad I found this thread. Thanks SkyFive
:thanku:

Amazon has the 6203-2RS (thinking it is the same as the -12) 2 for $6.50 and Prime shipping. The SCE108 can be had for $4.82.

Hondabond, Yamabond and Three-Bond are all the same, or they used to be ten years ago. I found that out a while back when I did a little research looking for Three-Bond.
