I think your idea of manually shifting the trans would eliminate the cable as the culprit. From you description, I doubt it is the cable. Cables don't change much based on hot/cold engine and trans...

If you'd be willing to sell just the extra rub rail kit, I'm interested. I have exactly the same boat and need a new rub rail. I'm looking for both the insert and the harder plastic channel.

Thx.
