Riding mower dies in reverse

This may be something I am missing but I am not sure. I have a MTD riding mower with a 13 HP Tecumseh engine that runs great except for stalling when I put it in reverse. I have made sure the mower deck is disengaged when I put it in reverse but don't have an answer. Any ideas? Thanks

It still stalls with the blades turned off? Check around the shifter to be sure it's not hitting any wires in the reverse position and grounding them out. Could be a bad blade safety switch too.
