82 240d shifter rod arrangment

I was having a horrible time getting the transmission back in service.

I did a few repairs on the driveshaft and then the shifter rod bushings and then rebuilding the shifter then put it all back together thats where I had the trouble.

I was using the attached picture to decide how to install the shifter rods. This picture seems to show that the front most rod is connected to the center lever of the shifter, the second rod connected to the right side lever and then the last rod to the left lever.

But when I did this things were all messed up. Shifting was very wrong.

After much thought I swapped the two front rods around and now its perfect.

Is this picture wrong? Is it for a 5 speed? Mine is 4 speed.

Thanks for your help!
