If you tilt the SB into the service position (sort of, on its face), then you can remove the bottom tractor cover and see what is going on. Basically, reverse puts the friction disc on one side of the center of the spinning plate, and forward puts it on the other side of center. The further it is away form the center, the faster it will propel the machine. Sounds like you just need to adjust the linkage length to get it to end up on the correct side of the center point of the plate when it is in the various detents of the control panel. There should be youtube videos that will take you through this process better than I did !

Good luck, it is not rocket science...or even motorcycle science !

Thanks if the machine is up right the friction disq in Neutral is toward the left side and slides to the right for i,2, and 3 position on the plate and checking other makes it is opposite i think.
