my 1987 yt-16 ford riding mower

hi to all,

i recenlty purchased a 1987 ford yt-16 mower. the mower cuts grass, but has several small problems that i'm working on. the main problem is that it will cut in foward, but hardly moves in reverse. the mower has a hydrostatic drive, but i can't seem to find out why this thing want go in reverse.

second problem: the engine has been replaced with a briggs 14 hp twin, but will not charge the battery. where do i start trouble shooting on each of these respectivly. thank you in advance

I just purchased the same type used mower (unsure of year). I had the same problem as your second. I have looked every where for a manual. EBay, etc was charging over $100 plus shipping. I just contacted JenSales.com (via phone) and they had the manual for $38 (including shipping). If you get an answer to your question before I get my manual, please share! Thanks!!

Hey I just got a 87 yt16 H and it works awesome but doesn't go very fast in reverse either and forward wide open it goes about a fast as I can walk quickly. Dunno if they are just made to go slow for safety or what
