I don't remember about going into a tube for 2nd & 4th?
The important thing is the reverse spring (say 1/4 inch diameter? wire loop)is adjustable (the resistance you have to overcome to go into reverse), and also determines the line up of 1st & 2nd. This is adjusted by a lock nut & nut on the right side.
It should just ride along the wire into 1st & 2nd, and have to bend the wire for reverse.
3rd & 4th are adjusted by the nuts on the left side.
This takes some trial & error until you get the hang of it, but not really hard to do.
The really IMPORTANT thing is to make sure you don't hit reverse going for 2nd, or it will BREAK the gears.
Sounds like you have found the problem, and it just needs adjusted.
Good luck, RGS
