Well this is on a jdm b18c motor and tranny. First gear is real difficult to engage, I have to put some force into it till it goes on but I get no grinds. Also After first, the rest of the gears engage real smoothly. I also noticed that with some speed, first will engage not too bad. I have Honda MTF in there. Could the first gear syncro be bad? could it have something to do with my linkage?
