Mine will pop out of first if I am going along slowly. For example, if a light is about to turn green and I do not want to come to a full stop. If I apply constant pressure to the shifter it still try but goes right back without being able to pop out. I figured my syncros are/getting worn out. Could a misadjusted cable cause that?
adjusted the shifter cables, the c/ master cylinder rod is almost coming out of the pedal(all the way to the end) bled properly, pump 10 times and hold, slave bleeds open then closed before release of pedal and repeat several times...
thinking about getting the extended slave rod..... new master.... and new slave.... before i pull the tranny to check the fork if it is bent.
for now it is also starting to grind when i put it in first gear and occasional
2nd gear, btw it also has very low engagement, about half to an inch off the floor...
I would try to solve that engagment problem first and then tackle any issues that remain. It sounds like you have all of your bases covered for getting the engagement back off the floor. That is as long as your fork isnt bent. Remember to check your pedal assembly for play as well.
if it won't stay in gear it has nothing to do with master adjustment or a bent clutch fork, that would just have to do with enguagement. This problem is more than likely internal inside the tranny.
I agree that it most likely a transmission related problem. However with the amount of issues he has going on it will be easier to elimnate them one at a time. Otherwise its like trying to hit a moving target. The engagement issue is much easier to address first, thereby isolating his transmission problems.
