I’ve owned my car for close to a year. I’ve had several parts replaced as the car had been sitting (the usual suspects - radiator, cooling fans, starter, fuel pump, tach, slave cylinder, convert to electronic ignition, etc). Body, suspension and interior in great shape.
Now that you know a brief history of my car, my issue is with the gear grinding. Unfortunately I have no history on any engine or transmission work performed. : / It could be my imagination, but there is no grinding if I am deliberate with gear shifts UNTIL I’ve driven say 40 miles or so, then it acts up. Did so today, I was afraid I wasn’t going to get home. Was sticking trying to get into 1st gear badly. Once in first, the rest of the shifts were ok with the exception of reverse. That too was a bear, I could’ve ground a quarter pounder… I read the thread on gear shift issues and the shortened shaft issue (no jokes here), throw out bearing, synchros, etc. and just got confused (and scared)… Any recommendations?
