Check the fluid level , check the the engine pulley for wear, Check idler arm spring tension,
Disassemble the transmission and inspect the pump center section and swash plates for wear....Look for tiny scratches on the bearing surfaces, if it is worn then replace parts as needed. These hydro transmissions comes with grease in the gear box that stops working after a few years. You need to drill a hole in the top of the transmission and push about 1/3 quart of gear oil in. Then seal the hole. You can use metal tape. If the shift lever F-N-R is out of adjustment the tractor will go in and out of gear as you drive. Once it is adjusted you should stay in gear and it will run smoothly. It will leak the gear oil out various unsealed spots until it find the level below these spots. Also re check the belt alignment.If its over stretched or got loose then it can cause such problems. ----------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
