ummmmmmmmm, any chance you installed the reverse lever backwards on the shaft ????..lol.
try tearing a 500 motor apart, back together, in the frame, running, then have to rip that brand new rebuilt motor back out, back apart just to replace a part ?..lol. you have it easy.Yep, been through the service manual multiple times and only found info on ithe reverse mechanism parts in relation to other things such as servicing the stator. So that was not enough info. But thanks!
Yeah, it definitely seems internal. Which is the frustrating part because i just got this thing all back together and it runs and shifts sooo good, just no reverse lol.
The cable has seen better days but isn't seized, took a pair of plyers on the cable tab to try and rock it back and fourth a little to attempt to unjam to no avail. Looks like i might have to pop the rear case off again and have another look unfortunately, or just live with it lol
Nope, shes right side out lol.
