From the Camaro's and TA's I have drivin' in the '70's, reverse is to the left and up, it also cause's a part in the steering column to turn, as you put it in Reverse.If the linkage or syncro's are beat up, you may have to look for a "sweet spot. If no luck, try turning the steering column safty... scott
