No reverse, 4 speed tranny..help please

I had my 65 restored, and the guy put the trans back in but I can't get it into reverse. I have access from the floor, the plate isn't in yet. I need to move the shifter toward the driver to get to reverse, but it won't get there.
All the levers and rods are connected, 1st-4th shift fine.
Any suggestions where to start?
Thanks

You probably need to adjust the rods, if the shifter levers aren't centered it won't go into reverse.

Thanks Goat,
I got it last night, the shift linkage wasn't put on right.
I appreciate your reply.
