I had my transmission rebuilt by Jacks this past fall. I finally got around to installing it this past weekend. Got everything in, clutch bled, etc. and couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get 5th or reverse. Ah! Shifter adjustment. Re-adjusted the cable ends. No luck .
I took the shifter cables off on the trans side and actuated the levers directly by hand. 1st to 4th are no problem. The select lever will go into the 5th/Rev position, but the shift lever wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t budge to select either gear.
After almost a year of being parked, I had to take my new engineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first break in drive with no 5th or reverse . Any ideas on what to check without pulling the tranny back off. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like to rule out all possibilities before returning the car to JSBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ing status.
