If it will go forward it will go in reverse, nothing wrong with the motor other than being old and worn. Do you have 2 connections running parrallel with the motor and then the other 2 perpendicular? Or better yet, take a picture and post it.

I had one like it a while back , gave it to my nephew it was a 1970 model
the frame under the seat came up and squared down - no arch . I never tested mine got it in a trade and had no batteries in it .

Wires are all good? Sounds like the F/R is the issue...

I thought it would be stamped. It may be under the 40 Years of paint. Time for some paint striper wire brush and sand paper. Just thought someone might know.
