Lawn Boy 8.5 HP starts, goes in reverse but not forward...Please help

I have an old Lawn Boy riding mower. It starts and runs good. Drives in reverse. When I put it in "forward", it sounds like the back end engages, but it doesn't go. With it in "forward" the mower can be rolled forward or back no problem. I'm completely miffed? Any help would be appreciated.

Please post the mower identification, Model, Transmission Mfg, engine mfg, all the info you can find so someone will know what to look for. Have a good one. Geo
