    No solenoids or earth connections involved here. You should try to fine tune the cable adjustment, but that may not be possible. Your Forward/Reverse synchronizer may be trashed. It requires a double split (transmission removal) to replace. The snchronizer was over $2000USD several years ago. The 1-4/5-8 synchronizer should be examined carefully, as it will be next to go. It would also be prudent to replace the piston seals and sealing rings in all 4 clutchpacks with those hours, given the transmission will be mostly disassembled. Just remembered there is a serial number break on that synchronizer, be careful when pricing/ordering parts.
