I have it adjusted fairly well. However 2nd gear is difficult to engage at speed. Every other gear is easily shifted. Every gear is selected easily at idle. I think that the 1st to 2nd shift plane needs to be adjusted a bit....
I might be you have figured the shifter adjustment out by yourself. But here how I adjust the shifter at the steering column.
The important thing is that the reverse should not be possible to engage by mistake. The shifter should be pulled out about 5 mm towards the passenger. Then it will be possible to pull the shifter towards the steering wheel one step more and engage the reverse gear. This can be adjusted at the last vertical joint to gear box shifter shaft (6mm thread with a 10 mm nut width). Appropriate adjustment is when the reverse gear cannot be engaged by mistake, but the 1 and 2 gear are easy to engage.
There is a small possibility that the reverse gear preventing system also might interfear, when changing from third to second gear. When changing from first gear to second gear there should not be any problem because the gear box are alredy connected to 1-2 gear shifter rod. You can try adjust the link a little bit shorter (or do I get it wrong and should it be a little longer?)
If parts falling out, when pulling the shifter towards the passenger one small fork has broken, and the adjustment becomes impossible, but the gear box is still manouverable. That have happened a few times at my Wartburg.
Nice that the clutch is working!
