hi Dan , no i have not got resolved as of yet ,still seeking direction before i start tearing something apart that i dont have to

Thanks for the update. Couple of things you initially want to check. Check for problems with the chains and sprockets on both sides in the chain case. You will have to remove the access covers to be able to look inside for problems with the chains and sprockets. Also check inside the hydraulic filter by removing and dumping into a clean container to look for fine metal or debris that would flag a pump or component failure occurring. If found the hydrostatic drive components would need to be sent out for disassembly inspection and repair or overhaul. Also the rest of the hydraulic circuit components would need to be inspected and thoroughly cleaned out to prevent cross contamination if it is found in the system. Reply back with the results.

Please take a moment to rate my answers as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star ratings and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
