I had just replaced transaxle 205020c in my scotts mower,when i tried it out it run fine for a minite then it slowed down and would hardley go. so I read on theese forums how to purge this axle, It worked great til I put it in reverse, It did it again, I let it set and cool and did the purge procedure again, now it works great in forward but I have no reverse. this is a new axle, what would make it loose reverse. I checked oil level added about 6 oz still no reverse my brake is releaseing all the way. It has me stumped, what do i do now?

RE: hydrostatic drive no reverse

One would think a new axle one could do a few purge cycles and all would be good. Is the level no more than 3 1/2" down? Physically the shift linkage is tight and not worn etc? Probably I'd do a few more cycles. I wonder if you will end up pulling it and doing the bellows loading procedure....

RE: hydrostatic drive no reverse

The oil level was not down,the linkage is fine,I even adjusted linkage to give more travel to reverse. I looked in the forums I see no bellows loading procedure, Is there a diagram of the internal valving? or internal linkage avaliable? If I split the case is anything going to jump out that i need to know about? Or who needs reverse and just keep mowing!
