From your symptoms, I can see why you would conclude that something is binding up in your reversing gear, but we have no historic failure mode that would easily explain how a reversing gear brake band can someow tighten itself.

I think you're on the right track to check your forward and reverse adjustments, and (more importantly) if you can remove the cover over the reversing gear, move the shifting lever back and forth and examine the connecting linkage between the shifting yoke and the brake band itself (and then get back to us). If something really is amiss in the connecting linkage to the forward and/or reverse clutch assemblies, it will usually show up rather easily.
