If it works fine with engine off, its most likely the clutch not disengaging properly,or the pilot bearing dry, making the input shaft rotate a little, most commonly seen on IB-5 gearboxes (the one without a drain plug), It has no syncro on reverse, unlike the MTX-75.
Try putting in 1 gear and then take it to reverse, keeping the clutch pressed. Mine has been like that for a long time..
