What’s wrong with my riding lawn mower?

It runs fine when it’s in neutral, but when I shift it into forward or reverse, it backfires like crazy over and over and over. It’s an old Lawn Chief (MTD)

    There is an electrical safety switch which is attached to the gear shift mechanism. It has become corroded. You're going to have to locate that switch. And replace it

    Clean the air cleaner, that is probably clogged so you are running rich. See what happens. It can't be any worse.
