If reverse is too hard to get in to then let the clutch out again in neutral and then push it back in. Works every time for me.

I drive both cars '01 Bullitt, stock shifter, '04 GT, TRI-AX. I absolutely DESPISE that sloppy *** shifter in the Bullitt. It takes a very deliberate effort to find third, whereby the tri-axe is a complete no-brainer. You would have to try to miss a shift. Interesting about folks talking about finding reverse. Both our 3650's find reverse perfectly. Last vehicle I had that trouble was with an '87 Turbo coupe with the T-5, that vehicle had a dragging clutch which made it difficult to shift into reverse. replace my clutch, no problemo!

Reverse is a bitch regardless, ford made some weird locking system, the manual says ur suposed to go 3rd 4th then reverse, i find that if it doesnt go in reverse sometimes i have to let off the clutch and brake, or do some weird combinations. They need to just put reverse on the other side and make it so u have to push down on the shifter to get it in reverse
