top loader shifter broke

Need help..My 4 speed top loader keeps hanging up. Pull transmission. Took to the best transmission repair shop he has been in business for 45 years..Was told that nothing is wrong inside my transmission, but that my shifter is bad. Unable to get one. Bought shifter handler rebuilt kit, rebuilt shifter handle and put transmission back but stills hangs up. Do I have to buy a Hurst remounting kit and Hurst shifter handle to resolve my problem? Open to suggestions...

Rebuild the shifter itself; not just the handle. You can get the parts from Mark at Toploader Heaven.

If you haven't rebuilt one his CD is very helpful; most anyone should be able to complete the rebuild. Look for worn parts that are not included in the kit and replace those too.
