Anyone know what would cause low horsepower when in reverse? Transmission in Forward mode is working well.

I have a Yanmar KM2A transmission,

Found this very nice film online.

Any ideas are welcome.

Dave - it may be the clutch slipping due to glazed cone. See this old post and my old Rhapsody blog post. Hard to believe that was 14 years ago!
