Shift Rod Replacement Question

Hey so I have read everything I can and have ordered all of my parts.

I went to install everything and i can't get the ratchet and pawl assembly to function correctly.

Is the drum that the ratchet and pawl assembly connect to supposed to rotate when you move the shift rod back and forth?

Mine doesn't move at all and moving the shift rod back and forth effectively does nothing at all.

If your meaning of moving the shift rod back & forth is you trying to change gear? Presuming the rear wheel is off the ground & your turning the wheel as you try to change gear & it's not changing then I would say either you'v not assembled it correctly or the reason for changing the rod isn't actually the rot problem. Have you pictures of it as is & more information please.
