My JD started losing forward speed, many people said the transaxle was the issue. AS I was removing the transaxle I noticed that that mounts were broken off on on side along with a strap (right side), left side had half of the mount broken off. I went ahead and drop the transaxle and drain the oil open it up to inspect the gears, everything look good. No large deposits of shaving on magnets. Clean up and sealed unit put in new oil 5w-50 senthitic. Install transaxle back under tractor, here where the issue is driving forward seems slow like it was in reverse speed, reverse speed is fast like it is forward speed. Linkage and pedal are ok no problem there. Does anyone know where to go from here?

Thanks
Dave

Did you replace the broken mounts? Seems like that would be the culprit, with the axle not located properly to the frame the belt is probably slipping causing the whole issue. Just my .02
