2001 Viggen 5-speed M/T:
I'm at wit's end on this one.
Short Version: Both 5th and reverse gears refuse to slide into selection. Engine running or not. Clutch disengaged or not. Even tried reaching down onto the selector-rod linkage by the gearbox (engine *not* running, obviously) but those two gears will not move in past the synchro.

Any of the obvious stuff checks out.
The clutch is new. shifter alignment is correct and all other four gears will slide into position without issue.
On a hunch I'd suspect some correlation to the reverse-lockout mechanism and tried to see if there was any changes to make down there, but the fact that the shifter can not even fully move into the engage R position means that the ignition lockout can not even fully engage!

I'm picturing a bent shift-fork or misaligned shift rod, but the internals of these gearboxes are not one of my strong points.
Anyone with experience opening up one of these transmission, I would love some insight on what exactly it is I should be looking at when I have to open this thing up to get it back into working order.
There has got to be some meaningful correlation with that side of the gear positions! (moving the selector rod to the right for 5th and R) ...

Dismantling and reassembling the gearbox does not intimidate me. more so that I just want to avoid pulley the transmission it if at all possible.

And for anyone wondering: I have no history with this car. it was purchased non-running, and now that's all sorted I have the pleasure of dealing with all of the other known unknowns. hence the tranny problem.
