If you are lucky you may just need to adjust the slack out of your cables.But if it is as bad as you make it sound I would say that it is time for a new reverse gear and clucth dog...Good luck...

Check the cables and linkage first for sure! Could also be a broken piece in the controls so if you have a safe place to test it disconnect cable at motor and engage by hand and see if it grabs.
