I am rebuilding a 1965 Plymouth Valiant, and I am having trouble adjusting the shifting cables. When I put the car in reverse it is actually going forward does anyone out there have any suggestions

Thanks
Charlie

Welcome to Allpar from one Charlie to another. Is it possible that you have the shifter in the wrong position on the transmission when you're connecting the linkage?

Did you remove the cable from the transmission during the rebuild? Pushbutton, column or floor shifter?
What happens when you put it in 1st?

Thanks
Randy

Hi Randy
Yes I had the cable removed from the transmission
It is a column shift when I put the car in reverse it is in drive or at least forward. Before I took it off the jack stands it was going from Park to Reverse and forward, but onced I put the wheels on and took it out for a test drive it would only go in Park and forward

Regards
Charlie

Welcome to Allpar!

I am not much help, as my car is push button auto, but I would think there is linkage or cable that is bound up, thus causing the odd shift pattern
