Unfortunately I don't have the answer to your question but I recently bought a 93 Lebaron myself and am having a similar issue.

My cat does the same thing. Well, the transmission guy took apart the transmission and it was a round gear that broke out of it's housing so that's why it would engage forward a little but then wouldn't go in reverse at all. He's going to charge about $1200.00 to fix it and to replace a valve cover gasket that should also be done while everything is out. He guarantees his work for the life of the car.
