 shifter want move on 231 mf for forward and reverse

It was the 200 series MF transmission I used but the 100 series and the shifter may not be the same. But on the 100 you could just every so much lift or pull up the shifter lever while shifting and get it out of the slot set it was suppose to be in. Could take of the top plate and all looked fine but would not shift then never tried a pry bar. The best I remember (near 40 years now) the slots were in their true neutral position there was one milled slot for lack of better description. Of course with tractor off, try moving the linkage by hand and see if you don't find it moves in such manner you can tell it is truly free. Then reinstall shifter lever and no up pressure when shifting.
Hopes that helps.
