1971 De Tomaso Mangusta with stiff shifting ZF gearbox

Recommended Posts

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

Perhaps completely unrelated,  but with some transmissions, the more they sit, the worse they shift, and the more you drive them the better they shift.  I've always assumed that getting the oil splashed everywhere  was the reason.
