SOUNDS LIKE THE PINONS ARE ON BACKWARDS. THE KEY SHOULD SLIDE OFF THE PINIONS WHEN PULLED BACK AND LOCK WHEN ENGAGED. YOU HAVE THE OPPOSITE PROBLEM OR ITS BACKWARDS!

Rear wheel drives like this have pinion gears with rachet pawls that allow them to go backwards freely while locking when the transmission drives them.
You need to take off your rear wheels and carefully remove the pawls. They look like little squareish metal shaft keys with springs under them. You should notice that the keys or pawls are covered in what looks like grease.....which is actually worm metal from the pinion gear and oil mixed together to form this pastey greasey substance. Clean all that stuff off and lightly oil *( light oil...3 in 1 kind of oil) and reassemble.
You should hear the nice clean clicking of the rachet pawls as you roll backwards again!
Good luck and be careful!

The last time I had a Honda mower in my repair shop I noticed that Honda doesnt do individual parts on its transmissions for mowers OR tillers.
You can fix this mower...but the transaxles are a bit expensive. Honda mowers do tend to be worth it though.
If the axle broke cleanly maybe someone would weld it back together?
I mean, the wheels dont turn that fast that balance would be an issue right? And I am sure the axle metal is cold rolled steel....which is to say it isnt thin cast material that would resist welding. If you take the transmission out of your mower and just take the parts to a good jobber maybe they would give it a try for 10-20 bucks? Dont expect a guarantee...but, for 20 bucks most shops wont even pick up a mower let alone try to fix it.
If this gives you another couple of years of service that would give you time to consider a replacement mower when the unit needs service again.
Good luck and be careful!
