I've seen several 2 cycle engines run backwards before...mostly old poulan chainsaws and homelite trimmers. However, I have never seen a 4 cycle engine run backwards.

how about this. a regular push mower with those crappy plastic wheels. well i rigged the cut off switch to not work and took off the flywheel brake and i was using a screwdriver to cut it off. well i left it alone to get some water because it was a hot day. well when i came back it was going down the drive way. the engine vibration rolled it up a slight hill. also it was one of them old crappy murray push mower decks. the blocky looking 22 inch model known for being hard to push in high grass sometimes.
