could it have a fiber gear in it  that let loose like the TJ have for the converter

If the fiber gear lets loose, your hydraulics should be dead too.  At least thats the way it is on the TJ's.  the converter drives the hydraulic pump as well as the charge pump.

sometimes you can't tell if a pump is bad by inspection because the case is wore out inside and the oil slips by.  If its like my pump, you have a port on the top of the housing you can test pressure at if you don't see anything unusual in a visual inspection.

I don't know what model you have, look on the converter housing for the tag, I've seen them there.

A way to check the pump out once it is removed , is to remove the fittings and clean the surfaces with brake parts cleaner or such and cover the holes with good tape like gorilla tape.  Now spin the shaft by hand, one side should suck in and the other will protude.   If the pump will move air it will move oil.

Would that transmission be the same as what's in the C-5 power shift?

Thank you all for this very informative forum.  I ran into the same problem yesterday and was able to go directly to the potential problem.  I will see tomorrow if everything works.

Any leak at all in that suction line will cause what is happening. Pulling lines won't let you see the problem. Find the line coming from resivor to the charging pump. Take someashaving lotion  and apply it to all that lines fittings and hose itself. Start the engine and watch the line. If there is a suction leak it will pull the shaving lotion in also. Apply it a few times when you find leak to assure yourself. If there are no leaks move to the pressure setup valve and shim it till you get it least good pressure.
