MG MGB Technical - Car Won't Shift

Suddenly, my car won't shift into third or 4th. Actually, it can be "Forced" into those gears, but it isn't easy. Does this mean bad engine mounts, bad transmission mounts, or some internal transmission problem?

It could be a bad nylon bush on the bottom of the gear lever. I have had similar problems with this bushing wearing out. I remember someone in the MGA community was selling this style bushing in brass.

Good luck"
