Moped won't pedal backwards?

Michael Del Grosso /

Oh man,

I just went to start my ped and it won't pedal backwards. It's just stuck. Before I go ripping apart the tranny does anyone know what would be causing this? She's just been sitting in the basement all winter...

All advice is greatly appreciated.

It'd be funny if he had a Hercules or some ped with a rear backpedal brake.

I remember that they can get hydro-locked,when gas fills the chamber. Remove the spark plug and try it. If that's not it, I'll look into my manual later tonight. don-ohio

i have an 86 tomos a3 that last summer i was firing up in my gravel driveway, and i lost control of it and as i flew off, it landed hard on the pedal, i think jostling the tranny too much. i had the same problem, but at least for me what worked was leaning it over to the right and kick starting it, kinda kicking the side of the pedal until it caught inside the gearbox. finicky machine, but for some reason this worked. i do not recommend doing this too much, if at all though. might cause more damage
