Hard shifting transmission on Yardman mower with 7 speed

I bought a Yardman mower frame put a motor on it and when trying to shift from forward to reverse or vice versa it is hard and jumps into the opposite gear.

Does it shift easily when the engine is off? If so, it sounds like belt problems.

Mine was like that and it was new. Spraying Blaster around the shift rod where it goes into the gear case helped. One day something popped in the rear end and it worked good after that.??????
