Hydro Gear Transmission Craftsman

I installed a used hydro gear tranny on my Craftsman 19.5 HP, 42" cut riding mower. Model # 917270823. Something is wrong because when I move the throttle forward, the tranny goes in reverse and visa versa.

Any suggestions? I'm sure the arm on the tranny that the linkage is connected to needs adjusted or something.

Sounds like you might have gotten a slightly different model transmission. What are the model numbers of the two transmissions?
