Offering this new "Made-in-the-USA" Peerless Gear LTH 2000-015B modular hydrostatic transaxle to replace the original, obsolete-&-no-longer-available VST 205-025 transaxle on Murray center-discharge, rear-bagger riders and others. It will replace the 205-025, -025A, -025B and -025C transaxles. This transaxle is factory-lubricated, ready to bolt-in and run.
This new-in-box hydrostatic transaxle has a 4-3/4"-diameter (12 cm) input pulley mounted over the 7-1/4"-diameter (18.4 cm) cooling fan, with the V-pulley centerline 4-21/32" (11.8 cm) above the case-seam centerline. The speed-control lever is on the right side; the brake and free-wheeling controls are on the left side. It has 3/4"-diameter axle shafts that extend out from the case 5-7/8" (15 cm) on each side; the axles have 3/16" x 2-3/4" keyways with snap-ring grooves on the axle ends. The overall end-to-end axle length is approximately 31-5/16" (79.5 cm). The case has two sets of industry-standard mounting holes -- the close-together holes are on 13" side-to-side centers x 1-3/4" front-to-back centers (33 x 4.45 cm); the far-apart mount holes are on 16-1/4" x 2-1/2" centers (41.3 x 6.4 cm).
To make this transaxle work correctly as a replacement for the VST 205-025 transaxles, there are seven areas of modification that need to be performed:
1. Rear side-by-side idler pulleys on mower frame need to be lowered slightly;
2. Cutout of rear side-by-side idler pulley crossmember to allow LTH fan and pulley to spin freely;
3. Left side corner brace;
4. Length of drive belt;
5. F-N-R (Forward-Neutral-Reverse) rod and connection;
6. Brake spring connection; and
7. Transaxle disengage lever.
Purchase of this transaxle as a replacement for the VST 205-025 will also include a set of 20 digital photographs, a 4-page set of text instructions, and a full-scale drawing of the F-N-R pedal-to-transaxle rod, that detail the necessary modifications. It will also include the correct drive belt and the necessary pedal-to-transaxle rod extension.
This is a 'B'-Input "Axle-forward" transaxle -- it mounts in the mower with the input pulley, shift arm and brake BEHIND the axle. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS TRANSAXLE on any rider where the transaxle is mounted with the input pulley, brake and shift arm AHEAD OF the axle, as it is not engineered for this mode of operation, and will not perform properly.
QUESTIONS? Please -- if you are attempting to use this transaxle to replace a different transaxle -- before you ask a "Will-it-fit?" question, compare the measurements of your transaxle to the dimensions I have listed above for this transaxle, and note the Model and Serial Numbers off your current transaxle. Yes, that may require safely jacking up your mower, removing a wheel, then crawling under the mower with a scale, tape measure, flashlight and notepad, as well as a rag to carefully clean off dirt and grease. In your question, also include the Model and Serial Number off the mower. It may even require you to remove the transaxle from the tractor to read the ID labels. Thanks!

FEEDBACK: Our Feedback is 100%, which is good. The latest Feedback, however, is in December of 2011, which may raise questions. The reason for this is because we had to drop PayPal as an Approved Payment Method in our Store due to eCrater’s restrictions, and the only way Feedback can be left is if we show PayPal as an Approved Payment Method and the Buyer pays with PayPal through the eCrater Checkout. For this reason, there are no Feedbacks since December of 2011, even though we’ve had hundreds of satisfied customers since then. If you would like to get a referral from a recent customer near you, please let us know. We have nothing to hide, and your satisfaction is our priority.
