Shifting in reverse
« on: 12:24, Mon 28 February 2011 »
Quick question (couldn't find it with the search).

Have another gearbox, shifts good now, BUT reverse has no protection setting, so when I drive off in 1st, I need to be very carefull not to shift it into reverse!

Does this have to do with the gear linkage underneath the shifter?

When I shift the gears, they do feel to be a little out of center and too much on the right side when using the stick, but all gears shift properly.

Any help is welcome!

did you have to pull the collar up for reverse before you changed the box ?

have you checked the linkage adjustment ?

i know it doesnt now, but did it before you changed the box ?

if it did id say adjust the selector rod, if it didnt maybe there is no collar mechanism for some reason
