Hello, my name is***** will assist you today.
Which part do you have out?
Did you have the prop shaft out at all?
Or take any of the assy apart?
If you look down the hole for the shift shaft, can you see the grove in the shift slider?
Is the gearcae still in Neutral and is the shift shaft also in Neutral? The cam should slide right into the slider.
Is the shaft traveling far enough to trigger FWD? Have you tried to turn the prop shaft while shifting into fwd to make sure that the clutch is lined up with the gear?
do you have it installed or removed at the moment?
Pres down on the upper portion of the shaft and see if you can make the shift cam move correctly.
