/ Tractor shifts but doesn't move in high gear #1
I had an accident with my Nortrac 25hp tractor. Started to go down a hill in low gear, but it just took off as if it was in neutral. Luckily it tipped over on it's side before colliding with anything hard. Used a winch the same day to get it on all wheels, but the engine would not turn over. Towed it back to my barn and it started on my first attempt. Thought I was home free, but now it hesitates to move when put in gear, and won't move at all in the higher gears, unless I start on a gentle downward slope. Transmission fluid was at proper level, but I changed it anyway, flushing out the reservoir with diesel fuel(as per owner's manual) and refilling. The old fluid was discolored as if it had water in it. I cannot see any mention in my manuals of any filter or screen for the transmission. Anyway after all that the problem has not improved. Accelerating the engine only slightly helps sometimes, but not much, if at all. Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be? Thanks for any ideas.
