OK now. After a month or so on this problem, with help from people on this site I have narrowed down EXACTLY what the problem is. It is the pump after the gear pump. It is the 3rd section back from the front by the engine. I have heard 2 - 3 different names. The gear pump comes after. Now, with that in hand I have check a lot of sites and apparently mine does not have all the model numbers on it. I have the first part 70111 - and that is it. There is supposed to be more and the rotation on it also. But mine is clean, no numbers and no damage smearing anything. Now, I am tired of messing around with this and I need the machine like last month so I am just getting a new trans which comes with a new whatever you want to call it pump and a new gear pump. I figure that in the long run it is faster. Then I do not have to worry about any of the other parts going more bad than what they probably already are being 25 years old and having had trans fluid used in it. The bad side is the $4400 (shipping included) it is costing me. I should have it by Saturday.

Thank you to everybody who pitched in and added advice, especially Dwellonroof.

I would once more change the hydraulic oil and filter with the new pump just for insurance.
You are very welcome and keep us posted.

Yes, to me that is automatic. Fresh oil, filter and I will be replacing a few hoses also. All of the ones connected to the new trans and few of the older ones on the machine.

When you take out the old parts, I'm wondering if the pumps aren't rebuildable for only a few dollars (relatively speaking) in parts. My power steering went out a few years ago. It turned out that the seals were pretty inexpensive to rebuild it. I believe many of the Terramite components were off the shelf from third party vendors like Eaton with good parts availability if you knew or could figure out what they were and where to buy them.

So I wouldn't just throw the old parts away.
