When I select 4th gear, it is as if does not go in all the way. It goes in, but the moment I release the clutch and apply power, teeth grind on each other.
I realized than when I select 4th on a downhill, leave the clutch and apply almost no power, it will stay in gear. But the moment I apply the slightest power it jumps out of gear.
If I gear down from 5th to 4th and let it run against compression it will stay in gear, but again, the moment I apply power it slips out.
I already replaced the dent spring and it is still the same. All other gears are working fine.
What I do now is to just go from 3rd to 5th , but this is not ideal.
Any help would be much appreciated.

The one of Martin-Brighton brought me to this site but looking at his video it seems like his problem was more that it did not want to go into gear. In his videos his gears look fine and I did not see a definite solution besides that it might be warn out selector. I checked on Fowlers web site where I buy my spares, I can get new gears there but does not seem like new selectors are available.
