you say engine turns in wrong direction? Is the drive for blade correct? I doubt the engine is turning in opposite direction, could the linkage to the hydrostat have gotten flipped over, so reverse and forward are reversed?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

I don't find a breakdown of the hydrostat transmission . It may have internal pump that can be flipped to change input direction. Do you have parts diagram for transmission ? The 1659 manual I found only shows a manual transmission.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
no that is why i called for help any suggestions
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 month ago.

Do you have any numbers off the transmission? Make and model?
