It has a hydrostatic transmission and the forward pedal drops to the floor under it's own weight but the tractor will not drive forward. It does drive fine in reverse and the front end loader works fine. Might anyone have a suggestion on something I could try? Thank you in advance.

Have you checked under the floorboard to see if a pin has came out or something that causes the pedal to not be connected to the shift mechanisim?

I did crawl under and checked the linkage as Frank suggested. It appears to be connected but the forward pedals continues to fall to the floor like there is no resistance. But the reverse pedal remains fine and it drives fine in reverse. I am getting some more transmission fluid as that appears a little low, although is works fine in reverse - unless it could require more for forward? At this point it does not move at all forward. Again, thank you Frank for the suggestion. ....

I doubt that being a "Little" low on fluid would cause it to not move forward as the pickup for the fluid is in the bottom of the sump.
I still have a feeling that something has came unhooked somewhere between the pedal and the mechanism inside that moves the swash plate.
Does the reverse pedal return to neutral when you take your foot off of it?
I do have a tech manual for that series but it seems to have grown legs for the moment.
