so i had taken apart the transmission and put it back together. now to get out of reverse i have to shift to 5 then to N. i think that maybe there is a reverse shift solenoid that was accidentally installed wrong. i'm hoping Phil N Ed can tell me what i had done wrong with some images. the black and white images i was using as instructions were not so clear either.

could have been the case, cause some fell down on the table. or i installed an extra ball in the wrong way. thing is there are more balls and springs than just at the top of the transmission with the 3 bolts. thing is the mechanics manual for the transmission forgot to explain it with the other ball springs go. :huh:
so if you can for sure tell me what to do VR4 that would be great as I plan to take out the trans this week to change out the rain main seal.

i was missing a 5 gear shift guide ball (behind the hex plug in the 5 gear fork assembly) and missing a shift guide ball on the revé5 gear shaft (lower portion near the left case) .
now shes back together and works as required except a hard effort shift.
