The problem most likely is the shaft on which the interlock slides back and forth on inside the transmission. The yardmachines have a continous spinning shaft which ends in a bevel gear. The is an interlock plate which is connected to the Forward Reverse shift lever, this plate slides back and forth and either engages the forward gear or the backward gear. This shaft is most likely galled up, preventing everything from sliding the way it needs to. This is not a difficult thing to fix if you are somewhat mechanical. Disassemble the transmission and check if everything slides

sounds like the transmission engagment lever is broken or cracked. if you can reach the lever see if it has play when the cable is tight. you will need two people one to hold the lever and one to check the lever. easiest way is to invert the mower and have someone hold the lever on the handle. do not try this wioth mower running. the lever should be tight with the transmission lever engaged.another note here the clutch lever will not feel solid but kinda spongy. usually caused by overtightening the cable.

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck
