Rebuilding a '91 Big Boss 6X6 - Won't start in Reverse

I am so glad that I found this forum.

This is my first post here and thank all of you for making it a great forum.

While not new to auto mechanics, I am a little frustrated with my '91 Big Boss.

Sometimes it will start in Reverse and sometimes it wont - but in either case the engine will turnover well. Simply putting the shift lever into High solves the problem and it starts right up. If I power down and re-try to start in Reverse - sometime it will and other times it wont.

So far I have been enjoying the Big Boss - I just have to be careful where I park it - as it usually only starts in High, Neutral, or Low.

Do any of you have thoughts on this - either what is causing it, or how to circumvent it?

Thank you for your help.

All the best,

Anthony Soprano
