Hard to get in gear.

Having trouble getting my 5 speed into gear. When the engine is off, I can run through the gears with ease. Turn the engine on, and it takes everything I have to shift into 1-5, and I can't muscle it into R.

I replaced the slave cylinder because it seemed to have a small leak, but still have the same problem. Now I'm looking at the heim joint, which from what I've read on here seems to often cause difficulty in shifting. I posted a video of what appears to be a worn out bushing. Does this look worn out to you? Could this be the source of my problem?

Here's the video: http://youtu.be/NZCO5IzXrM0

Well I replaced the bushing in the clutch pedal, and the problem remains. I also re-bled the slave cylinder, and it's still nearly impossible to shift gears. When I have the clutch pressed down and I'm trying to shift into gear, the truck actually creeps forward. I can start the truck in gear, and in 2nd with the clutch to the floor, the truck creeps forward. It seems to me like the clutch isn't fully disengaged. Any ideas?

Measure the slave rod travel with the pedal fully depressed. Minimum spec is 11mm. If you don't get enough travel, check all the bushings for the pedal under the dash: the pedal linkage to master cylinder rod, and the brake/clutch pedal box mainshaft bushings. Cheers!
