This was the one latin word message supposedly send by Charles James Napier to his superiors in India (1843) when he retook the province of Sindh instead of just putting down rebelling troops. It translates to "I have sinned".
Well so have I. When I put in the new shift lever I did not go back and seal the shift plate so some water entered the tranny. This is nothing new, but I should have remembered to reseal the cover.

If your Dexta has been outside during a lot of rain it too many have water which may have wet the shifting rods and gates.

You need to test the gates with a long flat bladed screw driver.

Test the left hand gate first. It should slide forward until the spring loaded ball enters the detent cut into the shift rod. The same thing should happen when you lever the gate to the rear to shift it to reverse. If you do not feel a positive click at each point then the ball is not entering the divot or detents or has no pressure on it for some reason.

The same thing should occur when you lever the right hand gate and the range shifter.
You should not be able to move both gates together at the same time or if one gate is engaged in a gear you should not be able to move the other gate from the neutral/centered position.

You might want to take an oil gun and lubricate the gates and rods or any other part that might have rust on it.

If you need photos I cannot do it today.
