Reverse lockout on quicksilver?

I just picked up a used B&M quicksilver shifter. It does not seem to have the reverse lockout, I emailed the guy I bought it from and he said it is an earlier one and it doesn't have reverse lockout. Is this true or did I get a junk one?

Why not go right to the source? the B&M website and contact their Tech people you can also download and print the Quicksilver installation and instruction sheet there,I also bought a used Quicksilver and found everything right there.

I might be wrong but i thought all the B&M shifters like that had the reverse lockout. And they didnt make them without it, I don't know how old your shifter is but i have the same shifter in my car it's been in there i know 10yrs and it has the reverse lockout.JMO

I seem to remember the older version from the 1980's not having the reverse lockout, think it was actually called the QuickSilver Quick Click version but I don't know for sure, it was a long time ago.

I had one of the original Quick Clicks, (IMHO, the father of the current Pro Ratchet), and it didn't have a reverse lockout, but later models did, so I looked one over carefully and fabricated the pieces to add it to my early Quick Click just like the later versions had,
As far as the Quicksilver, I couldn't say if that would be possible or not, I know some of the B&M street shifters are not designed in such a way as to make that possible.

quicksilver reverse lockout.

Figured it out. I got a good look at another quicksilver, the one I have is identical to the newer one except for a reverse lockout bracket. It is a simple bracket on the side that I will try and fabricate.
