1974 CJ5 Back up lights

My back up lights have never worked on my Jeep and I was messing around with it today and I cant figure it out. I removed the switch from the x-mission (T-14) and it looked fine. With the switch removed I shifted gears and the bushing that contacts the switch doesnt move until you move the gear shift from first to second. To me I would think the the bushing would contact the switch when shifted to reverse and move when shifted to another gear. This doesnt happen. The light bulbs are good in the lights. I checked continuity on all associated wires and all check good. Anyone ever had this problem?
