I bought an old Moke with no engine. The previous owner had set it up for a remote shifter, so I decided to use a rebuilt motor with a remote diff. I had to hand it off to someone who was better equipped to do the job and he dropped in the engine and hooked everything up. Because there isn't a lot of room in there for shifting, he took the plastic cup out of the shifter and added a KAD quick shift unit that I provided. He got it all installed and the shifter seemed to work well until he tried putting it into reverse. Nothing. The lever goes over on the spring just fine, but will not move backward into reverse. He checked the diff, and the little selector pawl for the remote linkage is installed the right way (someone had suggested that might be in backwards, but no).
Has anyone here encountered this problem before? Any suggestions as to what might be keeping my shifter out of reverse gear?
