CHECK under the mower where forward and reverse lever goes down to the trans axle. you should see a wire unplug it

SOURCE: Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse

Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

SOURCE: Blades run in reverse and only for a short distance going forward

according to the info i have this tractor has a disengage to prevent mowing in reverse, the blades should stop in reverse, meaning the pto should stop and have to be reset. i dont see a mention of reverse overide switch. are the springs for the idler pulley on the deck hooked up and is the belt good and right length. if so you have a bad clutch or as i said before a saftey switch.

SOURCE: The deck blades stop turning in reverse unless switch is pulled.

This is a safety feature that is not that hard to do so i say live with it.You do'nt have to hold it up just pull it up before you start backing up and once your moveing you can let go without it shutting off the deck until the pedel returns to neutral again,all tractor have it by law after a certain date so jumping around it is niot a good idea.

SOURCE: My MTD driving yard

There is a switch on the reverse lever position. the wire has most likely fallen off and come into contact with the chassis

Why won't the blades engage on my riding mower 54" mtd 13ap625k730?

You have probably thrown the belt for the blades. If it continues to throw the bet check the tensioner.

I have a Bolens Model 13AM762F765 38inch cut 15.5 HP twin blade lawn tractor. It runs like a champ as long as I do not engage the blades or put it in reverse. It will stall if either of these two things...

Sounds like a safety switch. Just as there is a safety switch under the seat that shuts mower off if you get off seat while engine is running, theres also safety switches for, pto, drive, reverse, etc. I would get a multimeter and look for switches under chassis and test with meter for continuity.

Blades run in reverse and only for a short distance going forward

ok when was the last time you had the hydrolic fluid changed ?
or the oil for that mater ?
oil breaks down
you wouldnt cook your french fries in year old oil but you will cook your tranny with it in a cub or mtd machine 100-120 hours max for the fluids in an mtd b4 they start to loose texture or viscosity ( sound it out)
hydro pumps di die mtd has 1 monster that is quite expensive also have you changed the filter on the rear axcel lately or is it full of nut butter and in bypass mode
100 hours doesnt seam like much but for a tractor it is

My husband says our mower wont cut in reverse but i have before

It will cut in reverse, but because of the rotation of the blades and where the discharge shoot is located it doesnt cut quite as good because it is try to discharge the grass on the opposite side of the deck while going backwards. Also, the is a factory installed safety switch that will kill the engine when the transmission is placed into reverse with the mower deck engaged. Because I dont wish for anyone to be accidentally injured do to the safety switch being bypassed i will not tell you how to bypass it. I know it is a pain in the **** that the thing quits everytime you just need to go back a few inches. Just find someone who will show you how to bypass it, its real simple.
