[DML] Second gear fork pin (David T)

My 5speed delorean has the second gear pop out problem however I have been 
able to learn to drive the car so that it almost never does it.  I just 
wanted to know if its possible that this second gear problem could be caused 
by something else?  Could a linkage adjustment or old fluid cause only 
second to do this?  I have a S.S. clutch line installed and ONLY second gear 
gives me trouble.  Before I have my mechanic open the transmission I wanted 
to make sure it couldn't be anything else.  (when i say possible I mean 
probable, I know anything is possible when working on cars)

The broken roll pin and the bent shifter fork are from not fully
disengaging the clutch and forcing shifts. Probably from having the
plastic clutch line and/or just banging the poor box into gears. The
shifter fork can be straightened and the roll pin is easily changed
once you get the box out and apart. If you shift it "like a normal
person" and put the braided steel clutch line in you should not have
any problems with the manual transmission. For added peace of mind
many owners use synthetic gear oil. The claim is easier and smoother
shifting, especially in cold weather.
