Just got myself into a new project! It is stuck in reverse, shifter moves around but won't engage gears.
Any advice? Here are some pictures:

You should pm Mike Wire. He is also a bus guy and may be able to answer some questions. Oh and by the way welcome to BSE. :)

Most likely you need to adjust the linkage. My manual covers the procedure, but I won't have a chance to dig it out till next week. If you're still stuck, PM me.

Haha how's it going? Think he's good. STILL waiting on a title though, hopefully I can give the thing a facelift and a better life!

Looks like you are getting some good help on TS. I would say pull the nosecone off, but I think you may need to pull the trans to do that. Have you gotten under there to look for anything in the linkage that is broken or loose?
