Found the problem (s) with Viking stuck on backstitch!!!
A: machine is "gummed-up" form old grease.
Solution: degrease machine with a high quality degreaser.. I used a spray electrical degreaser from an automotive store. Turn the machine up-side-down to preform this!
Then relubricate machine. Use a high quality sweing machine lubricant! Also lubricate the inner parts with a qigh quality "Sewing machine" oil.
B: Found that the return spring from foreward to backward was tired.
Soultion: Replace with slightly stronger spring from local hardware store.
If you need pictures, I took very detailed pictures of the reverse mechanism and "return to forward" spring.

Th cam stack gears have gummed up on you you can try getting the back cover off along with the side and soaking the machine down with wd-40 and running it while forcing the reverse button in and out if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then oil anything that moves. I know this may be discouraging but viking no longer supports this machine and you might be better off taking it to an older viking dealer for help.

Take it in to be serviced by authorized Viking repairperson. I understand that for ~ $175 they will disassemble your machine, remove all the hardened grease from gears, calibrate the gears & set tension correctly, etc. A small cost considering these older mechanical sewing machines are GEMS and will provide you another 60 years of sewing bliss if taken care of properly.
