Where is the choke on the Murray 875 rear rider?

Most of these models have a automatic choke, located on the carburetor. Some are coil springs and others are electronic. There is no manual adjustment on these. Some older models had it included as part of the throttle control. My guess is yours is automatic and is part of the carburetor system.
They are common item to go bad.

Our older Murray Riding Mower is stuck in reverse and will not go into another gear. It will back up but won't come out of reverse. How can we fix it?

Either your clutch is out of adjustment or somebody jammed it into reverse too hard which you would need to take the transmission apart

Hi, Michael a proper clutch adjustment for big twins starts by squirting some silicone spray or Brake Kleen into the top of the rubber boot on the clutch cable and sliding it back exposing the cable adjuster. Loosen the jam nut and turn the adjusting screw all the way in so your clutch lever has excessive slop. Remove the Derby cover, loosen the jam nut on the clutch pack adjuster screw and screw it in until light resistance is felt against the clutch rod then back the adjusting screw out 3/4 of a turn and tighten the jam nut.
Check primary fluid level and replace Derby cover unless you are running an early model "Dry Clutch" leave the Derby cover off. Go back to the clutch cable adjuster and back it out until there is 1/8" free play between the clutch lever and the bracket perch. This is correctly accomplished by pulling the clutch cable end outward with your right hand and pulling the clutch lever in with your left hand and modest pressure on both hands to eyeball the free play. Tighten cable adjuster jam nut and slide rubber boot back to its original position.
On Dry Clutch Models you need to square the pressure plate by adjusting the 3 stud nuts on the outside of the pressure plate so that when the clutch lever is pulled in the pressure plate shoots "STRAIGHT" out and disengages evenly.
On Sportster models, the procedure is the same except the clutch cable adjuster screws directly into the primary cover with a jam nut.

Yes, there are two adjustments for your clutch available, one can be found at the back of the primary clutch master cylinder and the other one is the rod sticking out of your secondary clutch master cylinder. it's very tricky though, make sure to turn those adjustments a turn at a time. small turn makes a big difference. make sure to bleed your system afterwards.
