RE: [DML] transmission issue

Dale, Do you have the stainless steel hydraulic clutch fluid line. If not,
that would be the first thing to replace. The old black line is probably
swelling under pressure.

I have a very strange problem with my 5 speed transmission.
On a HOT day if I'm idling around town and doing stop and go The 
transmission begins to GRIND when going into 1st or 2nd.  Sometimes it 
helps to put in 4th or 5th first and sometimes not.  Sometimes I have 
to shut the engine off and then put it in first.  It's like the 
synchro doesn't work.  If I go out and drive down the road for awhile 
it will then work fine again.  It only happens on hot days.  It 
doesn't do it in the winter around town.  The gears work fine it 
simply doesn't like first and second.  What might cause this?  I know 
nothing about transmissions.
