I have found reverse and 1 other but i dont know which one but it dosent feel like first gear

the lever closet to the firewall is 1st and reverse,the lower one is 2nd and 3rd,reverse and 2nd should go into the up position when in gear,you have 2 linkiged on the tranny top goes into upper lever bottom goes into lower lever.

With a 3 speed column, you have to move the shifter into the neutral position and push forward and then up that will be second. to get to third just push the lever down from second. the shift pattern is an h shape if that helps.

why u diging up a year old post??
