Transmission and shuttle are complete separate hydraulic systems than the backhoe. Is the shuttle full of fluid? Many times hydraulic shuttle has its own fluid, dipstick, and charge pump.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

typical shuttle will have the pump in the front of it, driven by torque convertor.

i dont want to get in too deep.what would be a few simple ideas i could try before i start removing big things
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Be sure the shifter is moving the valve, and look for a check port to check for pressure. Be sure the shuttle has oil. does it have its own dipstick?
