First step is to get under the car, remove the linkages from the trans. Put an alignment pin in the shifter. Now, place all three shift levers in neutral. Put the linkage up to the hole and turn the joint in or out until it slides in with almost no resistance. Now the nuetral bias of the shifter and the tranny should be aligned.
If you have a Hurst shifter with adjustable shift stops, they could be in too far. With the car off, put the shifter in Reverse, First and Third while watching the shifter plate. If it hits the rear shift stop, you need to back it out until you have about .040 inch clearance give or take a little when you are just eyeballing it. Then shift into Second and Fourth and check the front stop. Adjust accordingly.
If these adjustments don't correc the problem, it is internal.
There is a fine line between hobby and obsession and I think I crossed it!
