I locked this transaxle today and it acts Wierd. It runs with no problem but when it's in neutral it will not coast at all. I have took off the brake and nothing. If had it coast a little but it rough. What could cause these problems? Yes there is alot of greese in it.

might sound crazy, but have you checked the axle bushings? what about end play? something's binding up in the axle area methinks....

you said it was full of grease - is the grease old or too stiff/thick? may also be an issue

I didn't change the grease. But when I put vise on the axles and use force to spin it. It makes a noise. Kinda like the brake draging. But the brake was off. I think something it binding

sounds like you got slag from welding in one of your gears or on your axle take the top case off spin the axle and see if it lifts up anywhere

If it wasn't welded perfectly straight, the axle will bind, after being installed and bolts tightened.

Or one of the tab's on the bushing's is out of place.

Well I found out the ball for the shifter and spring fell in the case which made it bind up. I took and cleaned the gears put it back in put the tabs in right and she is so smooth now. Just perfect. Thanks for the ideas!
