I was driving my 70ss today and went to shift from 2nd to 3rd and it wouldn't go in. Also tried going from 2nd to 4th, same thing. It was shifting fine before. What could be the problem? Its a M20 with a Hurst comp/plus shifter. Thanks for any help!

I checked the alignment with a 1/4" drill bit through the alignment hole, and everything seemed good. It will shift from second to third now but I cant just slam it from second straight to third, I have to go from second to neutral then third. Something doesn't seem right. I should be able to go right to third from second with a hurst shifter, right?
Are there parts on a Hurst shifter that get old and wear out? This shifter was on the car when I bought it and looks old. Besides the shift rods binding, what else could be binding?
