There is a very high probability that you have a worn ball on the gear shift. This is quite common. The end is shaped like a lollipop with the top sheared off and fits in the slot of the channel shifting forks. I have three Dextas I am working on and all three have severely worn lollipops. They had been welded up before and ground back down to fit, but I don't think people knew the correct dimensions or they had worn down again. You can purchase a new shift lever at many places if you don't want to rebuilt the old shift lever. I bought a new one and it fit perfectly. Just remove the bolts holding the cover plate and you can easily remove the entire shift and range lever assembly.

The only difficulty will be removing and reinstalling the retaining circlip and tensioning spring on the shift lever. If you are good at welding you can build the ball up and grind it without removing the shift lever assembly.

Thank you very much!!! Do you know of where I could get rough dimensions of what size the "lollipop" needs to be? Or does it just need to be ground to fit?
