Could be a combination of things. Partially the detent springs inside the transmission could be part of the problem but I am going to say that it sounds like it might be the brake pawl needs adjusted or replaced. I don't know the technical name for the part but it is a brake pad/lever that goes against a drum right in front of the transmission on the driveshaft to help keep the gears from turning while the clutch is depressed. I hope I explained that right, it's been a long day.

Correct. I would take a close look before ordering though. Like you said, maybe a simple adjustment.

Also make sure the brake plate at the front of the clutch is ok and working.
:ditto:

Sounds like the brake plate needs to be adjusted.
The servicemanual is avaiable to download if you need detailed instructions how to adjust the linkages
