1997 Toro walk behind mower 3 speed transmission

I have an old Toro mower with a 3 speed transmission that's pretty hard to shift threw the gears.
Any solutions for this it's a great running mower besides the hard to shift problem.
Also is it possible to interchange the 3 speed with the cheaper single speed transmission?

First I would unhook the control cable from the tranny and see if it is the transmission or the cable that is stiff.

I pulled out the plastic shift arm on the transmission and packed it with grease.
That seemed to smooth it out about 50%.
We'll see how it holds up after mowing the lawn.
