The shift rod to the transmission and the clutch rod are both adjustable on this model. It sounds like you need to adjust the shift rod first. The nut that attaches the shift rod to the transmission link can be removed from the transmission link and screwed farther on the shift rod or backed off as needed.

The clutch can be adjusted the same way where the clutch rod attaches to the idler arm bracket.
