good afternoon my name is ***** ***** suction screen that was dirty, did that have brass looking particles in it as well?
cat litter??? got me stumped an that one. the rubber could be from any piston packing in a clutch pack, rubber from a filter etc
my initial thought was brake failure. when the brake pads wear down they make an aweful mess and clog the strainer.
on this machine you have a reverse and forward clutch drum which use the same fiber material in the clutch plates as the brakes. my suggestion would be to fill with fresh oil and filters. retry forward and see if it behaves. if the machine is operable then its most likely rear brakes
if your still sluggish in forward you most likely have a forward clutch assembly failure
JD parts breakdown of the forward clutch drum on that machine
just to be sure you may want to have a pressure test done on the forward pack to verify that is the issue
were you able to get this thing moving?
sounds like a plan. let me know
with all the debris you described being in the oil i would strongly recommend having pressure tests done on the elements before you throw any more good money at it
