How to repair hydrostatic drive

My 5 year old mid-engine rider #523.270302 will not move forward. Your answer of broken or bent linkage did not solve the problem. How can I get my hands on instructions to repair my transmission myself? I cannot afford a $500/600 service man.

I did not find a repair manual for the exact type of Peerless hydrostatic drive that this mower has. The image below shows the repair procedures for a similar model of hydrostatic drive. You may be able to use this information for your mower.

This type of repair is normally completed by a service technician. If you are not able to diagnose and repair the mower using the information provided below, I recommend that you have a service technician fix the mower.

I have a fiver year old Rover Ride on mower and the Hydrostatic has just stopped working, no foward or reverse.
Repair shop has quoted $2,500.00 to replace it.
I said no
I have purchased a new Crafstman, but still dont want to throw the old mower away.
I would like to have a shot at repairing it
