So everything is going fine. Went to grocery store and manual trans wont go into reverse. I move shifter all the way over to the right and try pulling down and wont even try going into gear.
Get it home and start ripping stuff apart. I notice I dont have a spring were this write-up does. On the 12th pic down I am missing this spring. I pulled inspection cover off the side and send a magnet around and found spring. Reinstalled it and temporarily bolted down shifter and truck WILL go into reverse now.
So my question: from what i understand this spring just returns shifter back to middle position. what is the "reverse lockout" I hear about? was the spring my problem? How does the reverse lockout work?

Update, Got back together. It WILL NOT go into reverse from 5th. If Im in any other gear and try reverse it works. I know 5th and R are on the same shaft so what technically is messed up inside there?
