I am installing the turbo shifter rods in my Horizon, and now to get it in 1st gear I have to push down over and up as if I were going into reverse, but there is no reverse. How do I adjust/install the shifter rods to properly get all 6 gears? TIA>

The main shift rod (torque tube?) has splines on the end closest to the shifter. You need to get the trans in neutral and use the alignment pin (remove and reinsert the opposite pointed end) located on top of the trans to lock it in place. Under the car there is a bracket that the shifter slides on and a little hole on the bracket. Align the hole on the bracket with the center of the guide block on the shifter. The guide block should be held against the side of the bracket while you do this. It sounds like the splines are out of position and not allowing the shifter to rotate to get into the proper "gate". You can repostion the splines to get this back.

Or you can just remove and reposition the splines a little by "eyeballing it".

Hope that helps.

I don't know about the alignment pin. Where at on the top of the tranny?

I know of the bracket and guide block on the shifter. And I was thinking the same thing about it being on the wrong spline, but didn't know how to adjust it.

On the top of the trans you'll see a rectangle cover/plate with the reverse lights switch on it. There will be a pin sticking up with a 10mm nut on it on that same cover. Unscrew the pin and insert it upside down into the hole it just came out of. With the trans in nuetral between 1st and 2nd is where the pin will slip into a divot and lock the trans into that position. Now is when you adjust the linkage under the car. You may need to get the trans into nuetral and then loosen the linakge to make it easier to put the guidpin in. Sometimes it's necessary to move the linkage on the trans with one hand while trying to get the pin in with the other. The first time is always the worst.
