More than a shift pawl adjustment

While riding I was unable to shift into third gear, I have had this problem years ago and the solution was a shift pawl adjustment. Well this time after taking the top cover off the transmission, and while in third gear, and using the feeler gauge to obtain equal spacing between the rods on the shift drum and the shift pawl I am still having the same issue. It appears as if the shift pawl does not have enough force to return to the proper position.

I have a feeling the spring that returns the shift pawl arm to the forward position is worn out. Is this possible? and does anyone know the name of it? I just moved and my manuals have yet to catch up with me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The springs, and I'm going by harley, should keep the ratchet housing centered. That means no slop in the shifter fore or aft. If the spring collapsed, loose shift arm. Only way to find out is move the cover away, see how the springs look. That, or remove the springs and match their height to each other.

That Shifter lever shaft spring is a common failure. Usually they break the end off of them
