It's 1 of 5 likely things
The drive belt from the engine to the transaxle is totally slipping or broken
The linkage from the control pedal to the transaxle is faulty.
The transaxle is broken (not user fixable)
The by-pass rod is pulled out
The brake pedal is pushed or the linkage is stuck in the "brake" position.

50 horse 4 stwont go into reverse gear due to shaft problems


the drive shaft just drives a pinion gear in the prop box that drives to gears that spin in opposite directions all the time
by selecting forward with the selector rod , a dog gear is moved forward to mesh with one gear that is turning or moves the other way to engage the other gear that is turning
that is the forward or reverse action for the prop
if you have forward but no reverse the it is not a drive shaft problem but a selector rod adjustment that is not moving the dog far enough to engage the running gear

The tines are not moving forward on my Rotavator. The engine is Tecumsah Vantage 50. The tines move backwards and the engine seems fine. The rotavator will not move forward


I have seen a number of domestic rotavators but haven't yet seen one with a reverse gear. You didn't make it clear in your description whether yours has a reverse gear and that is all that is working or whether it usually only moves forward but is moving backwards?

While it is theoretically possible for a 2-stroke engine to run backwards, your engine is a 4-stroke that is incapable of running backwards and so it would seem the gear selector is stuck if it has one or someone has carried out repair work and made a mistake or something else is broken.

The only thing that comes to mind is some of the older designs used an over-long drive belt that crossed in the middle like a figure eight in order to reverse the driven pulley and replaced the belt with one that seemed the right size would cause the machine to run backwards.

More information needed, perhaps...

1983 Johnson outboard . Model J25TECTE. Runs Forward/Reverse. Shift rod connection OK. Shift in neutral it runs in reverse. Do I need to change something in the gear case section?


you have removed the leg to replace the water pump impeller
the leg has the selector rod for the forward and reverse action
as the direction selection is a simple dog that moves forward or back to connect the spur gears and it was working before you pulled the leg off , then I am thinking that when the leg was reassembled that the selector was in a wrong position and now you are only moving it in one direction neutral or reverse instead of the 3 positions forward neutral reverse
nothing else can change except where the rod connects in the leg

Weedeater lawn mower won't go forward or reverse


Try the friction wheel, you guys over think things. Use a snapper wheel, then use your original friction band, you'll have to modify the snapper wheel a bit but it will fix your problem
