Hi all, finishing the rebuild of my rod change A+ gearbox here, and it's time to torque up the two big nuts. Am following Guesswork's guide, so it says to disengage the gear selector by turning the lever 180 deg anticlockwise.
my problem is i can't seem to do that! it goes up to about 90 deg where it gets stuck. the selector is blocked by the fork for what i think is the 1st and 2nd gear. Am i supposed to force it or something? Saw a video on classic mini DIY of Cole doing it and he disengaged the selector effortlessly.
As far as I can tell the interlock spool only goes in one way so i don't think i fitted it the wrong way, but it feels like the bottom lip of the spool is catching the fork or something...
