This a Case transaxle you got with a Borg Warner shuttle,there was a common problem with them,the brakes used to lock up due to the actuators been worn,brake would lock going forward and stop the machine,back up an inch and the would release and be free again,this happened on both the dry and wet brake models,if it locks up again reverse a bit and if it frees I would say one of the actuators is worn,its very unlikely that something was left loose,if it was it would stay loose and locked up.

Good luck

 Re: 580 K lock up in reply to AJ., 10-14-2013 01:27:20  
Thanks for the reply. I had thought of a brake lock up but dismissed it as I replaced all the frictions and discs when I did the trans. The actuators looked good with no signs of wear except for a slight patterning on one of the actuators which I replaced. The ramps looked smooth. I run the brakes fairly loose so as to not cause any unnecessary drag. Could the actuator hang without applying any brake? It was maybe 1/4 mile since the brakes had been applied. I was under power climbing a hill when it stopped. It was very sudden like, no slow down just a complete stop.

I have the transaxle out and the covers pulled. Aside from a very stiff 3-4 synchro, everything looks fine. I will pull the brake housings back off after a bit and see what I can find there.
