    Default "Brian, Turning the rod wou

    Turning the rod would do it and would also be the most likely reason. Possible someone thought that turning it would be how the shift is adjusted. If the pivot bolt has not been removed you may be able to turn it back in without tearing into the gearcase.
    Good Luck"
