Question about Mtd Garden

Open Question

Can I bypass the switch that prevents my Bolens 13.5-HP Manual 38" Riding Mower from mowing in reverse? If so, where is the switch? I understand the safety issue, but it is extreemly inconvinent to disengage the blade everytime I need to back up.

Sounds like the shear bolt is broken, Do you have and owners manual to show you the location of shear bolt? They are easily replaced.

Cant find motor Model number on Bolens MTD 2005 Riding mower 15.5 hp I/C OHV


Per your own question that is the model # just use the 13AM762F765, There should have been a 2nd set of numbers and those would be your Serial number 9 digits followed with (000005) which is year built. I have exact same mower

Mower dies if you put in reverse while blades are engaged


These mowers are designed to do that, so that you don't accidentally back over a pet or kid while the blades are turning. My Bolens 38" has a key setting for reverse mowing, you have to trun the key to that position in order to bypass the safety swith for reverse.
