Hydro Transaxle

Repair or replace the tractors? Hydro Trans Slipping (13 years)?

I have a Craftsman 15.5 HP lawn tractor 42 "Peerless 205039C Transaxle Hydro has been sliding slopes, even moderate in recent years. I lived with this thing of past years and I know that is not slipping belts. It is a sealed unit, but I gutted and replaced the oil twice (Mobil1 15W50). It seemed to work for a while, but no more. trans replacement is no longer available at Sears (even if they list as available) and other Places are selling online for $ 650. Can not find it new or used on site (Easton PA area). Although the engine and deck are in great shape, it is a tractor 13 years and I do not think it's worth $ 650 for a new trans. Repair or replace? I tell myself that I can get maybe 150 200 USD $ for something that is from someone who needs parts. Opinions? TIA Stu

In any axle hydro trans ago the so-called cons valves online. One for the front and one for reverse. Try this, see what happens. engage the mower blades and try to save the slope see if it fits into the reverse mode. If these valves are dirty and blocked, it will happen. But difficult to think of both front and back would be a bad thing when Withdrawal try to see what happens. I can not tell you to take this unit out because they need practical experience to do so. It is possible but not desirable.
