Bronco Info: 1974 Ford f-100, 1979 Bronco
The most common cause of this is a leak between the transmission pump and the reverse gear. What happens is it loads up the reverse passage and increases line pressure not allowing it to slip enough thus causing the engine to have a load and the rpm's to drop to the point of dying.
This info came from a good friend who owns a trans shop.
