Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The service information shows a conventional T handle floor mounted shifter. Is that what you have?

Yep and have found the problem thank you the locking bush on the transmition end hand broken and the selector cable had come away from the transmition !! Local trans workshop modified the bush and all is well
