Need to lift snowblower for smooth shifting

Hi,

I have an Ariens 922999 Sno-Thro, 4 HP, 20" with Tecumseh engine. I have been lifting the snowblower by the handle bars so I can shift easier, otherwise, it is tough to shift. Currently, my shift rod is slight bent and am wondering if that is the reason, maybe something else or a combination? Maybe the shift lever and shift link need lubricating? I wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas before I buy a new shift rod.

Thank you.

Jim

really shouldn't shift a snowblower while moving unless it has a hydrostatic transmission, your shift rod is probably bent from doing this.

I don't shift it while I am moving. I stop first, lift it up, put the snowblower down and start moving. But that shouldn't make a difference since the shift rod is bent. Right?
