Default No reverse BW R-10

I just rebuilt a BW R-10. I put it in the car, started the car and no reverse. It appears I have 1, 2 and 3rd gear when I let the clutch out. I pulled the shifter cover off, and manually put the tranny in reverse. Started the car, let the clutch out and the transmission is moving, but the car is not. I had to put rubber bands on the sprag clutch to install it. Is it possible that those rubber bands are preventing reverse. I did notice that the shift rail does move with the OD lever. I can see the rail come into the main transmission. Stumped
