Congrats on the Case.

 

I suspect that you have one of the older models before they had a holding valve built in. If you look on the travel control handle there is a position that says retard. At the crest of the hill put it in retard and it will go down the hill slowly.

Artists is on the money. That is one perk with the older ones. I believe the cutoff was '78. Some of the older ones were retrofitted with the valve which would be visible just in front of the rear end. Looks like a rectangle valve. Check for that. Also when going downhill, do not use the brake. It is for parking and will also return the travel handle to neutral which removes it from "retard" function. Would love to see some pics.
