Hi All,

Recently I was driving my 41 9N on a downhill using first gear, using the engine as a brake. My hill is pretty
steep, and the clutch seemed to let go, and I was suddenly in a freewheel coast down my hill. Luckily, I have
a front loader on it, along with my feeble brakes, I was able to get it stopped along with dragging the bucket on my driveway. It has happened a couple of times. I know of a clutch slipping going uphill, but not totally releasing going downhill like I was in neutral. It does it also in other gears too. Thoughts?
