580 B- won't go in either direction now

Al I just bought this 580b w/backhoe, it had been setting for 5-6 years, we got it out of the hole it was in, I started it up today to move it so I could load it, and moving it around in the trees, it kept making a clunking sound .i started up the incline and it kept getting slower and slower, but the clunking remained the same. It finally just quit, and started rolling back downhill. It is full of hydraulic fluid and every thing else is working. Any thoughts?
AJ Has the power shuttle enough fluid,unscrew the dipstick and check the level,the stick is located under a hexagon plug on the top cover of the torque tube behind the control valve,is the gauge showing pressure,clunks are bad news and usually mean that a gear has stripped some teeth,the 580 has been known to strip teeth from the ringear,you will need to remove the cover from the back of the diff to check that.
