    Spray the rubber bushings on the shifter rods attached to the transmission with PB Blaster. Have someone work it through all the gears with it NOT RUNNING. Spray them a few times. I then put something like Break Free ( a thicker lube ) on them. If you have the floor mounted 4X4 shifter do those bushings too. This should free up the shifters.
