Could be linkages
Ive had the first one under the van break on me due to metal fatigue. Gear change was sloppier and sloppier then porridge, then nothing.

The bit that went on mine looks the 8" of cast metal linkage, but worth checking the whole lenght especially the links and bungs up the gearbox end.

Having said that, its never going to be brilliant as its a lot of linkage really.

The nylon bush that wears out most is at the gearbox end. Opposite the gate thingy on top of gearbox. Costs about a £1, but a pig to replace. Patience, levers and brute force work.
