where is the f/r switch? Big switch with contacts behind the knee, or small rocker switch on the dash?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Large switch, likley a contact is bad in the switch on the forward side, you can test by swapping the two cables. F/R, t see if forward works and reverse quits. If on dash try reversing the two wires, as the directional change should be made in the motor controller, which you have replaced.
