Is the machine new to you? If so are you aware that the hydro drive will probably have a by-pass or dump valve to allow the machine to be moved without the engine running? If that is open the machine wont move. If it is closed there is the possibility that the pump has entrapped air and needs to be bled.    .

The issue is dating your machine. if the Honda is original equipment the machine is "relatively" recent . Most of the Condors that I had anything to do with had Kohlers.

If you Google Hayter Condor Hydrostat there is plenty of information. The problem is matching it to your machine.

A few images of the hydrostat may help.

My mate has given up with this Condor and stuck it on ebay for spares or repair current bid £102. It looks really nice. Can't help some people.
