Got 6 gears using usual method.

Can get into reverse position, but it just won't go in fully, it's almost there.

I bought linkage on here from
A Corsa with f28, and it has been shortened.

Linkage doesn't see to foul anything so I'm
Abit stumped, no shafts or fluid in yet, so abit notchy as to be expected

Neutral


Can get gear stick here


Won't push forwards anymore. With gear stick like above, linkage sits like this



But it's not actually hitting anything?


Ideas?

May sound daft but have you tried placing clutch in then going straight from second into reverse? Never done anything with F26 though.

Other idea I have is to put it into reverse as much as you can with you holding it there and another guy goes to the linkage on the gearbox and wiggles it about, maybe that the rod with the rose joints may need a slight turn (tighten or loosen) but OBV don't mess about with it yet.

Just ideas.gl

see the difference?


on right is a corsa f28 link. the black bush is closer to the big round socket part.

its further away on a nova.

yeah, it has to be cut and shortened.

what i think is wrong is that the one you have isnt short enough due to the white bush part.

Oooh, well I have a linkage being made as we speak, and some new Athlon bushes arrive tomorrow so hopefully this is the only issue. Had enough headaches with xe

be aware that setting the 6 speeders up is best done with guess work and 2 people. pinning them and stuff never usually works.

Nope.

Started with neutral and pinned to the left.



Are you guys saying hold slightly to the left or what? It's a pretty big area to be going bit by bit
