Check the linkage from the directional lever, I think you will find the linkage is not moving the lever on the transmission for reverse, with hydrostat, if you have forward, the transmission is capable of reverse.

The linkage seems fine anything else it could be?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 7 months ago.
If the lever at the transmission is making the reverse movement, then the problem is with the hydrostat. It has valves for forward/reverse that could be swapped to see if the problem swaps places, located in the control cover top.
