not easy to get in any gear

i replaced my staock shifter with this one. but now its harder to get it in every gear then my stock one. why would it be harder i kinda have to grind it in there or just push hard.

Did you inspect the shifter busing for the shifter? This can cause slack when shifting and can cause harder shifts.

What was the issue ? I'm having the same problem on my 88 notch . - Cristian 3 years ago

the ball on the bottom of the shifter that fits inside that little cup. try sanding that ball just a little at a time with some emery cloth. that worked great for me. - chris 3 years ago
