Is this a Snowblower Transmission?

Hi,

New to the forum. I am trying to determine if I am looking for a snowblower transmission. It is not being used in a snowblower but rather a small airplane tug. I will post a picture once I have enough posts to allow pictures.

Does anyone know if this is a snowblower transmission and if so, which manufacturer it is from? The transmission can be shifted to a forward, reverse and a neutral position only.

Thanks for any help identifying this transmission.

It is a Foote 35 Clone. If you are trying to repair a Gilson early gear drive that Powertow transmission has been used. For a 2 speed Gilson the old output shaft along with the shifter input are transplanted.

Thanks Pete. Do you know if replacement parts are available? The problem with the unit is the shaft inside the unit which selects the direction sheared off.

I absolutely think so! I will go out to the airport today and confirm. Man! If this is it, you have found something I have been looking for months! I will post an update later today.

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond and look for it!
