To follow up, the shift lever ball end fits into slots milled into the brackets on the three shift rails. When mine jammed, the ball evidently rode up out of the slot and onto one of the brackets and jammed on top. I first measured the various dimensions of the ball and lever under the cover with a dial caliper and made a dimensioned drawing as a reference. Then I welded with gas MIG to lengthen and build up the corners of the ball. Probably added about 1/8". Started grinding to reshape with the corners of the ball a little less circular and a bit higher. Took a couple of re-installs to get the ball short enough to work smoothly. About 1/16" increase is all the system would tolerate without the ball jamming in the bottom of the slots. I know nothing more to try and trust that it will now be OK.
