I have a customer with a JD 9650 that coasts when travelling down hills. The Hydro doesn't slip or slow down when going up hills and there is no sign of metal or contamination in the hyd filters. The JD dealer says the only fix is to replace the hydro pump and motor, but I can't believe if they were bad that it wouldn't slip or have some other symptoms like noise. Is it possible for anything in the transmission itself to allow a freewheeling condition?
