What type of shifter is it?

Hurst, B&M, Muncie......

Probably needs the linkages lined up properly....or new bushings, or both.

You might also have one of the arms that connect to the transmission pointed in the wrong direction. Ask me how I know that
I re-installed the arm(s) on a previous M21 upside down and it made for some really tricky shift patterns.

You can buy bushing and spring kits for them through Summit or jegs. Sometimes your local auto supply will have them in stock. Get the metal bushings and then go back in adjust the rods. there is an alignment hole in the bottom of the shifter. Using a just fit drill bit stick the bit in the alignment hole with the rods disconnected--shifter and trans in neutral. Then adjust each of your linkage rods to just slide over rectangular fitting at the shifter fork--then give it a try.

Could be a problem with the shifter, or the side cover plate on the Muncie. There is a whole host of mods to be made on the side cover that will drastically improve shifting.

A quarter inch drill bit works perfect in the Hurst alignment hole. Tell us where your are having problems at, and maybe we can come a little closer in figuring out the problem.
