    Hi folks, I wonder if anybody here could help me get my old 5212.5 cutting again..2 weeks ago she just stopped pulling. I checked all the simple things and then I removed the transaxle and tore it down. It turns out that the left drive axle is stripped in the side gear of the differential. I actually think the gear is ok but the splines are just gone from the axle itself. I am having trouble finding that axle but hopefully somebody on here has one they would sell. Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried the various online sites that advertise large stocks of Simplicity parts?

    I can find the axle for $100 or so but I would rather try to find a used one. I think my transaxle is a peerless 3126. Axle # is 774499 (tecumseh #)
