BW35 Shift Linkage Question 140-160

Had a little transmission work done yesterday. The shifter linkage bushings needed to be replaced, along with the neutral safety switch, which was actually leaking fluid. While the old parts where out, my mechanic could see that the threaded end of the remaining linkage rod was worn a bit and will cause a wobble and prevent the gear indicator from being exactly accurate. He said some linkage rods are made for left or right side drive and if this one was made that way, it would only need to be rotated 180 degrees and the problem will be solved. Do any of you know if the linkage rod has this 180 degree reversibility? It's inside the transmission and I don't want to pay for an exploratory to find out. Sorry for the long post. Thanks for your help.
Here's a BW35 diagram with a red arrow pointing to the part I'm talking about.
