Hello all, this is my first time posting on Hondaswap (NOOB). You guys usually have pretty good insight so Im hoping you can help me out with my problem. Well, I just swapped a B18B in my 94 Civic Hatchback DX. The car is now running, no check light on, and the car started up in the first try like a champ. While I was taking it around for a test drive I noticed that I didn't have a 5th gear and reverse. The gears just sounded like they were grinding. I was able to drop it into 5th gear once but I had to throw the shifter pretty hard to get in there. It feels like it's in gear but it just gives out a grinding sound and pops out. I have an AVID shift linkage and I have a B&M short shifter dual bend with energy suspension bushings. My friends think that I might have the shift linkage upside down. We did notice that it's hitting up against the exhaust piping when shifting. Is it possible to install the shift linkage upside down? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
