Re: muncie wont go into reverse
The first thing is to put the shifter in neutral, get under the car with a 1/4" drill bit and see if will slide through the holes in the three linkage arms and shifter bracket. If it doesn't, adjust the linkage so the drill slides smoothly through. I had to make this adjustment a couple of times to get it just right. What is the proper way to adjust my Hurst four speed shifter? Here's the info from the Hurst website.
There is a 1/4 inch hole at the bottom of the Hurst mechanism that runs through all three levers. This is called the neutral alignment hole. To ensure proper adjustment, run the shifter from first into second and then back to neutral. Insert the neutral alignment pin (or a 1/4 inch drill bit) into the neutral alignment hole. If the 1-2 lever interferes with the smooth insertion of the alignment pin, remove the 1-2 linkage rod from the shifter and thread the adjuster button either in or out to eliminate the interference. Repeat this procedure with the 3-4 lever and reverse. To adjust the stop bolts, back the bolts out of the shifter frame until only a few threads remain. Push the stick firmly into third gear and hold. Screw in the stop bolt until contact is made. Release the stick and back the stop bolt out one turn and tighten the jamnut. Push the stick into fourth gear and repeat the procedure.
