RESISTANCE DRIVING UP-HILL

1977 Datsun 210

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1977 Datsun 210 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 96000 miles

When driving up-hill at inclines greater than 20 degrees the drive-train seems to " stick", then release, then " stick" again, slowing the car.

When I get back beyond 20 degrees incline it goes away completely.

I thought it might be the parking-break sticking since it seems like " drag" on the car. To test it I've accelerated the engine in neutral while going up-hill with no issues, and tested the breaks, also with no issues.
