Won't tick over, check timing and set carburettor
Gear will not select, something is wrongly assembled or broken, most likely in the selector mechanism inside the outer case rather than in the gearbox itself , it will have to come apart !

Cruiser 80 gear-change.

The gear-change problem is possibly due to the reversible ratchet sector being wrongly fitted to the spline shaft that is part of the selector quadrant inside the gearbox proper.Side-casing will have to come off.
