I know that on my Yanmar I asked the distributor (Mack Boring) and a factory rep and they said I should keep it in reverse. But if your manual says neutral, I would sure be inclined to go with that. One thing to check is that the choice is as much a function of the transmission as the engine, so make sure the manual you are looking at is for the right engine/transmission pair.
