I have been adviced here remove floor mat (no tools needed), remove the 10 10mm hex bolts retaining floor plate and you will find 2 cables.
The one on left is the 4-5 gears, the right one is the shuttle cable.
Seems the problem with the shuttle was on the cables. The bolts that hold the collar in place were a bit loose but not too much. Retightened them and became better but still had difficulty on shifting reverse. Found that only crunched when you try to engage reverse and the lever is not at its full travel and you release clutch.
If you have problems engaging reverse you will have to adjust the lever to stay a bit more forward and allow it to give more reverse travel. Loose the collar retaining bolts, loose the collar locknut.
If you need to make more reverse travel on the lever u will have to rotate the collar in the direction that aproaches the locking nut you have just loosened. If you need forward travel (Forward on the shuttle giving trouble) you will have to rotate on the opposite direction.
I passed from difficult reverse to no forward in a little more tham 1 turn, its a narrow adjustment.
Try in steps of 1/6 of turn until works good on both directions.
As older it gets the adjustment will become narrower as you will have wear on the pins that hold the cable on place.
Did this on mine to find that one bolt was loose and the other was missing, found it sitting on top of wiring loom. After a bit of fiddly adjustment shuttle is working correctly in both fwd and rev with no crunching.
Give it a go it might be your problem.
Good luck, Rick.
