So has anyone actually gained any neutral shift improvement by performing the shift adjustment shown in the Venture Service Handbook? It says it helps to take a vise grips and bend the shifter shaft spring tab. Should I try this on the Max? I experience a tough time locating it once the engine is hot... changed oil to Rotella 15W40, still no change when hot.

I have never try the shift adjustment, but another thing that can contribute to have issues with trying to get neutral is the clutch basket & inner clutch hub. They should be inspected for wear (notched warn into the outer basket where the friction disc make contact ) & wear ( notches warn into the inner hub where the steel disc make contact )
