The Transmission in question is: Eaton 11 Hydro Transmission mated to Peerless 2500 Transaxle in Ford LGT 145.
I recently got stuck in snow and ice when moving snowbanks with my Front End Loader. I went to tow it out with my car and accidently left it in High Gear. When I towed it, I heard two clicks of the gears, then ran back to move the lever into neutral to tow out of the ice pit I was stuck in.
Could this have caused damage to the Transmission or Transaxle?
Was the click I heard the gears in the transaxles moving the output shaft on the hydraulic pump?
This leads to another question about Hydrostatic Theory.
When the swash plate on the Transmission is in neutral (tractor not moving) is the oil pressure exerting onto the transmission output shaft, so it doesn't move? Or can the output shaft move feely at this point?
I was using the tractor again later on and I noticed when I let my foot off the pedals, when on a slight slope, the tractor rolled backwards. Is this suppose to happen or is the transmission suppose to hold pressure on the gears, preventing the wheels from rolling?
