If forward works, and in neutral it also goes forward, and in reverse, the unit locks up.won't move, the forward clutch pack is locked up, On TA18, the original clutch material is affected by moisture and and the plates come apart, jamming the clutch pack together, so it does not release. The ony repair is to repair the clutch packs with new plates, seals, and clean the system!
