Just installed an C20XE (with F20) into my nova. Ive linked up the gearbox to linkage etc but I can only get 1-4 (+ reverse) using my gear stick, it just doesnt go far enough right to select 5th. so I disconnect linkage and try getting the box into 5th gear by manually turning the selector on box. I can select all other gears but when I turn the selector towards the engine for 5th it just doesnt twist far enough to get fifth, it makes a clunking noise as if it is hitting something (cant see anything visible), preventing it from twisting far enough to get it inline for 5th.
I havent started the engine yet or adjusted the clutch - even though I have tried using the clutch whilst changing (-dont know if im actually moving the clutch yet)
Any ideas folks. I dont want to go to the hassle of fittin the drive shafts etc to find out that its gonna need a new gear box.
It was working previously
