Re: [DML] Shifting issue - Manual

There are no roll pins that hold any syncros in place. Are you 
talking about the roll pin that holds the shift forks in place? I 
wouldn't suspect the roll pin as a problem, as Paul hasn't described 
any trouble getting it into 1st, which the fork also has the duty of 
doing. How very common is this problem? I was under the impression it 
when people try to force 5th gear to engage was when the 5th gear 
fork roll pin breaks. I haven't heard of the 1-2 or 3-4 fork pins 
breaking. I just rebuilt my transmission and know my forks/roll pins 
and syncros are fine. Yet my transmission sometimes doesn't want to 
engage into 1st from a downshift only- but takes a few seconds. The 
linkage/gearshift tube that adjusts how far forward or backwards the 
shifter goes usually doesn't need adjustment, it's the crossgate 
cable that should be looked at. But check them both out and make the 
adjustments as necessary. If you don't have any trouble with the 
other gears then it's likely not to be a clutch problem. To check
level of the transmission fluid there is a fill plug on the passenger 
side of the transmission. It the same kind of plug as the drain plug 
on the bottom of the transmission- just a simple plug with a square 
head. If you haven't replaced the fluid I'd recommend doing
