Pityguy, you're on the right track. I use the Mcmaster Carr 1" bore, case hardened teeth, 12,13,14 tooth #40 sprockets. I take the standard Peerles disc brake(fine splined), stick them in a vice and press them to the Peereless disc brake and weld them up. Pretty easy.

the only problem with that is, the 11 tooth only goes up to a 7/8" bore,(From what I see....will keep looking)

Good call Pitguy!

I also think 420 chain pitch is the same 1/2" you could get one for a motorcyle

Wouldn't be hard for a machine shop to open it up to a 1" bore.

>:D

Can someone advise me correctly
i have heard that it is better to put  grease in the 700 tranny as this is what works the best and covers the gears the best

I have some grease - spent a fortune on it too ARGH!!!!!!

or does the racer work better with oil/ what should i get then?

We use John Deere cornhead grease. Turns to an oil when hot.

Have you ever broke a 700 with a Centrifugal clutch George?

Hey all

I live in the UK and the problem i have is Tecumseh has gone bust in Europe and so getting parts is very difficult now.

I need a Input oil seal Part No: 788083 but am only able to get one from the US. Making it very expensive.

I need the exact dimensions of the seal and possible a good picture of one so i can try and get it matched up to something else.

I have tried all the places that sell mower parts etc but nothing yet.
Yehhhh boiiiii

The seal dimensions are 5/8" x 13/16" x 1/8" I get mine from an engineers supplies store. This part number may or may not be of some use B102472070.
If it has blades I'm not interested.

Sorry I'm in New Zealand so could be a bit tricky. I will however check and see where they source their seals. More than likely Japan or China.

When you remove the reverse chain from the 700 series, is it necessary to remove gears also? If so, are part numbers 786071 and 786072 what I need?
Will these parts fit a 700-758 series (3 speed slider)

Thanks

Gears do not need to be in for spacing, take them out.
