Thanks Rusty, Frank. Sorry dont have any manuals on the car. I am in the bush in South Africa.(not really in the bush but close.) The car has a clutch which can be driven like a manual or if the clutch is let out slowly and dont accelerate, then give it gas it will take off like a automatic. It has 3 foward gears, reverse and 1st are opposite each other and it goes in fine. 2nd and 3rd are also opposite each other but the shifter doesnt seem to want to move down to get into that gate. it just cant get past 1st and reverse. Hope this helps thanks Mike.
