Does anyone know of a way to install a short throw shift lever in the R154 transmission with a reverse shift lock? The internal "reverse shift lock" is causing my shifter to get stuck halfway out of 5th. I don't really want to remove it but I might have to. Any ideas?

Haven't heard of this issue before, but I'm not too knowledgeable on the R154 mechanisms. Everything else in good shape? Clutch/pressure plate/gear oil?

And, according to this forum and my own experiences - fresh Redline MT-90 fixes everything but world hunger :)

Yeah I just got done rebuilding the motor, put a brand new pressure plate and clutch in it. The issue happens even when the transmission is completely outside of the car. I pulled out that reverse shift protector and it shifts beautifully now. In the process of putting it back in currently.
