My Mangusta does not get driven as often as it should and lately the times I drive it, the shifter seems to be stiffer and stiffer.I lubricated all the linkage and it seems to be fine. The problem seems to be inside the gearbox. Does anyone have any ideas of where I should start looking or has anyone else had similar problems? Thanks in advance for any help...Bill Sorensen

Is it filled with ATF or gear oil? Gear oil will make it stiff. It should have ATF.
