Is the problem that the lever has more "free movement", when it's in the index mode, as it settles back into the detent? Or put another way does the lever have a greater amount of movement before it changes the denent it's in? If so then this is a well known issue of some older units. I have replaced a few due to this.

Of course one should do all the usual confirmations of cable friction (minimal), cable tension (actually casing length) and der alignment first. This hasn't been said and I won't assume that these steps have been done. Andy
