Shifting hard

I have a toro 1132 and I'm gettting it ready for the winter and noticed that it's shifting hard. Any ideas why and what can I do to fix it?

If it is(hopefully) a Friction Wheel Drive, Clean the hex shaft it rides on with Sandpaper and then make sure it is greased. Lube any linkage as well.

Is it hard shifting when running or not? If both then the transmission probably has an issue rust, bent shift fork, frozen detent spring, ect. If its mostly running then check if the drive belt is trying to spin even a little will keep pressure on it making it hard to shift.
