Hi, I have a STD gearbox which I have fitted a reverse cam plate, how do I line up the indexing rocker to make this work correctly?
I have converted several RRT2 boxes to 5 speed and have built several other gearboxes, no problem, but I am missing something here?

On a STD box with standard cam plate it is just a simple case of lining up the the dots / dimples on the indexing rocker and case with the cam plate in neutral as the ‘sandwich’ plate goes on.

The nearest reference I could find was in an Haynes manual which stated it was “Trial and error” ! Really!!

Thanks in advance.

I have a reverse cam plate on the shelf that I intend to install someday, but I haven't done it yet so I haven't tested the information in the following two sources. Dave_NV described his procedure here, and another approach is described in the April 2011 issue of Classic Bike Guide. There it says to use a dot of paint on the selector in the position that is mirrored on the other side of the center line.
