Placed the tranny inti neutral. Adjusted the linkages. Adjusted the stop bolts. Done this before without any problems. Coulf the large reverse engagement gear be rotating in the wrong direction because on a internal problem??

your clutch is dragging

causing everything to continue to rotate,
you will need to adj the clutch to release a little farther,
a trick I used to use, ( with eng running) before trying reverse, put it in 1st gear, then right to reverse, by going to 1st before , it will stop everything from rotating.
hope that helps

What cruzin57 said is worth a try, when I had my Muncie that is the way I always got it to go in reverse smoothly. Just stop and put it in first for a moment then go into reverse. That may be the answer as long as you can put it in reverse with the car not running.
