Peerless 2500 help needed

I am working on a John Deere 400 which has a peerless 2500 transaxle. Although it functions fine I have noticed end play in the axles and some slop in the drive. I assume some movement is expected from backlash in the gears so it is the end play I am most concerned with.
I took one of the axle supports off mainly to investigate but cant see much. I assume the movement comes from worn thrust washers on the axles/differential. I do have a couple of digital manuals, but they are not very detailed.

My main question is if or where parts for these are available? I can get bearings and seals locally and make a gasket if I have to, but if I go into this thing further can I even get parts? Im assuming some of those thrust washers and/or snap rings will need to be replaced. Lastly, does anyone have advice or experience with one of these units?

Have you checked if the parts are still available from DEERE?

You can view the parts catalog at the link below, then check with a dealer or GOOGLE the part numbers you may need.

If it's thrust washers, they are a common item you should be able to get at a bearing house.
Take one with you and buy an assortment. Snap rings do not usually require replacement, and they are not symmetrical. Be sure you install them correctly.
