If you can remove front rack and front plastics, it will be easier to service. Next, if you haven't done so, download a parts manual from<mymowerparts.com> to help identify any worn parts. It's really quite a simple set up, the upper end connects to the shift lever, bottom end goes to the transmission. There is a coil spring in the upper part, I replaced that in mine with a heavier valve spring from a lawnmower or something else to give it a more positive engagement. I suspect the vibration of the diesel contributes to stuff like tis wearing out. Reminds me of riding a Harley, haha.
