take the shaft and cover assy out of the transmission. Rotate the cover left and right, there will be a detent in each direction, and one in the middle. If the transmission is in neutral, then the one in the middle is the one you want.

Also, you can install the shift lever (golf club) onto the shaft, to hold it in place, and rotate the cover with the shaft held. That way you don't have to worry about the shaft moving the transmission out of neutral (which really isn't an issue anyway, as you can easily put it back into neutral later)

when i try to install it in the center, neutral, position, the holes don't line up. i just tried lining up the shaft key to the front and the holes to match. it definitely wasn't the correct position, but it did seat properly. i had reverse, although a bit clunky, and the middle position gate. it didn't pull up. I knew it was wrong, but that's the only way i can see it going in properly. going to take it back out now and regroup...again.

thanks for any help.

Is there a need for a gasket between the transmission body and the shifter tower?
