We'll guys I talked about this before. Trans shutters when starting out and pulling grades. I found a service manual and it says the trans stops you from pushing the tractor. I can push my 1556 with no problem when it's not running. Maybe this is a symptom of the problem, where the tractor will not pull a steep grade after it warms up? Here is the page out of the manual that talks about a parking or neutral lever. Maybe this does not pertain to the 1556, but it should being a eaton 10.
We'll damm I could not get the page to copy and paste. But in manuals you can find it under the eaton 10 service manual.
Has any one had this problem in the past?

If I knew what manual to use for this, I might be able to help. I looked through the bolens section, but could not find a 1556 manual!

This is a hydrostatic drive tractor, so you should not be able to push it without "relieving" the pressure or putting it into neutral.

 

If it is able to freewheel, it sounds like it is bypassing.  That means it is allowing fluid to escape from the pressure circuit that makes the wheels go. 

 

It could be as simple as a relief valve.

Yes that is the page I was referring to. If it is a relief valve, is that something that can be cleaned or do you replace it?
And if you have to replace it where do you find parts?

When I push it around in the shop it makes a clicking noise, maybe that is a clue to the problem.

M 1556 had to be in neutral {just let the pedal ride between forward and reverse} to move it and it would make a clicking noise.

Small lever on left side of the engine ( if sitting on it) there is a stud in the tube frame that it latches on to release the idler tension on the drive belts and let you push the tractor , however if pushing any distance it will still want to lock the rear wheel(s). I would check the condition of the drive belts the tension spring on the idler pulleys and also my tranny fluid & filter a dirty filter could restrict the flow when the tractor and tranny get more of a load on them like climbing a grade

I've thought about the spring, I have two new belts. Maybe the doctor can help finding a spring?
As far as the pulley release, it makes no difference wether it is on or off when pushing it around.

So you. Believe that the clicking noise is normal. That make me think more about the tension spring. It would be a easy fix,

My H16 makes the same sound as well you can only push a couple feet then the rear lock up from pressure. These have no real neutral and they are not really meant to be pushed far at all.

These really were never made to be "Freewheeled" for long distances.

If you had to manually move them it was recommended you go very slow, the clicking is normal when pushing.
