Default need tech help with clutch problem

I have a 63 Falcon with a 67 289 mustang engine and a 4 speed on the floor.Recently a rusted cotter pin broke off the rod to clutch fork while driving and the rod flew off to never never land! I found a adjustible rod on ebay that said was correct for replacement.My problem is that I don't have any imformation on the adjustment.I can start the car in gear ( it is off the floor) and as soon as I let off on the pedal it stalls.The gears seem to be moving freely with the engine off.I can start the car with it in neautral and motor will keep running.However the wheels are turning in reverse and shoud not be.If I hit the break,it stalls. obviously something is not right! Could it be that I got the shift linkage hooked back wrong? Thats the only thing I can think of.Any help would be grately apreciated! Thanks. Grandpa Marc If needed,my email is ( folsmont@hughes.net )

A little hard to understand but it may be that the trans is stuck in reverse in reverse(linkage wise) while the shifter is in neutral.If you were under the car trying to install the clutch linkage you may have accidently moved the reverse linkage rod and put it in reverse with the shifter still in the neutral position.All I can think of.If this is the case,you will have to move the reverse linkage in the opposite direction that it is in now.A pair of channel lock pliers will help.

Thanks for your input Hockyman.As far as I know I did'nt move any of the levers on the trans and put the shift linkage back the same.But it is possible something moved and I did'nt see it.Thanks again.Best regards,Grandpa Marc
