When did this problem start? Has it ever worked correctly with this set up?

With the info you provided my first guess is that you either do not have the linkage adjusted properly or you have the wrong linkage.

A quick check for the motor mounts would be to crank the engine and rev the engine a few times and watch to see if it has excessive movement. Other ways would be a visual inspection or apply light lifting pressure to the engine with a jack or cherry picker. Watch the mounts to see if you see cracks in the rubber.

Hope this helps.
