GlueBall, the right engine was not developing climb thrust. As I understand the logic the aircraft in that mode was maintaining approach speed. The A/THR was in SPEED mode, and before disconnect was increasing engine thrust on the right to counteract the drop in speed caused by manually pulling back the left engine. After the disconnect happened, the right engine remained at the thrust setting it was at when A/THR disconnected.
