I did a search and found converstions about loose shifters. Mine is very tight. Seems almost too tight, like it is awkward to shift requiring more force than I would have expected. The shifts are smooth. Ie, the gears don't grind, and they go right in, it just seems the shifter is too stiff. Given the rust I encountered when I took the front end apart, I am wondering if my shift linkage has a similar problem. Before I tear that down, I thought I would ask you experts for your wisdom and opinions.

Thanks again.

sounds like a lack of lube. I tore my festy apart and it was dry as a bone. I cleaned and relubed everything using spray fifth wheel graphite lube. It is better then the average lube, you can pick it up at a truck supply shop, or a trailer repair shop, but AVOID truck stops, they are over priced. You may be able to scoop up a partial can for free if you know a truck/trailer mechanic.
