What do you mean by "rod?" The shift lever?  

I find myself wondering if you have a problem like Gregs, where there the 
arm, that is welded to the shaft that goes into the AT to select the 
gear,actually has a broken weld. This makes the shifting unpredictable, and 
dependent on the direction you come into a give gear from.

I have actually never looked at this closely, since I've never seen one that 
didn't work. Is it possible that you didn't get everything reassembled
