Is the belt slipping? Is the pulley at the hydro free spinning on the input shaft? Does the hydro have fluid? So many questions. So few answers.

I would change the hydro filter and then refill fluid. Sounds like flow is restricted.

Sounds like it's low on fluid.
You need to find out what's leaking fluid.Most common leak locations are: Relief valves,loose Pick-up tube and lift cylinder hose.
My 149 had a cracked lift hose and a leaky relief valve,my 127 had a leaky relief valve and a rusted out filter and my new to me 169 had a loose pick-up tube.The pick-up tubes use a compression fitting so if they are loose it will leak out pretty fast.All 3 of mine were bought as "Ran but wouldn't move".After fixing the leaks and changing the filters and fluid they all 3 worked perfectly.

Another thing to check is the roll pin holding the yoke on to the input shaft in the hydro. Make sure it's not broken, and allowing the yoke to spin on the shaft.
That could cause it. It will spin till you put pressure on the driveshaft. I had that happen on a gear drive Cub Cadet 108 once. It would move in creeper position, but that was it.
