Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Transmission is a manual transmission, go direct to the shift lever on the transmission, and remove the shifter linkage,then see if the transmission can be shifted manually. If you cant get forward and reverse, then the transmission would need to be removed and repaired. Usually a shift fork or mating gear is all that goes wrong.
