first of all ..do you have clutch left and it is adjusted ok???..if so..is the linkage adjusted...does it have plastic bushings? if so buy some cheap steel ones..also service/drain fluid and put in synthetic gear oil..there is also a nut inside the cover that might be loose..or a bent rod..but ..lets not worry about that now unless you power shift it...
