[DML] Re: How do I replace reverse safety pin on shift linkage

You need to make sure there is no excess play in the linkage. Check
the rubber washers in the ends of the links that the bolts go through.
Adjust the linkage as per the Workshop Manual. A 1/2 turn one way or
the other can make a difference. Make sure the shifter is working
properly. You must pull the knob up to get over the reverse gate. If
the pin is bent that can prevent you from getting into reverse. The
linkage may also require lubrication. The long pin should also have a
smaller pin installed inside it to make it stronger. Check the motor
mounts for any cracks. If you have a blown motor mount it will make it
hard to shift too. The front left one goes first so look it over
