Broken Backhoe

  • First time user to this site. My old IH 2500b backhoe is getting tired and dose not want to move anymore. It has a standard clutch and trans, 4 speed with a high and low range( 8 forward gears and 4 in reverse). It started loosing power to the rear wheels and would only work if the RPM's were up. Then it started to only move when you reved the motor and after a few seconds it would take off with lots of power until you pushed in the clutch. Then you have to sit there with the motor reving until it would move again. Now it dosent move at all. I found a piece of an o-ring in the hydraulic oil filter. Not sure if this tractor has a hydrostatic drive or is the clutch the problem. Can anyone help me with this? Brad
