it may be running in safe mode, try to adjust the shift linkage and do a reset if any codes show. manual will explain linkage and how to reset.The first hondamatic i fixed did the same thing and i did a reset and it never did it again. I replaced the bad swash plate bearing ( thanks to the info from Brian) had to machine swash plate to fit new bearing but my friends ruby is still running strong up in Alaska....after rebuild. always put a new style oil pump in!!! sounds like you got lucky and fixed it before the bearing went out. on the old style oil pump the relief valve had problems sticking open and causing really low oil pressure.
