Trans was taking apart and the worst has occurred. I need a new 1st gear, as well as synchros for 1st 2nd and reverse, as well as a 1-2 slider.... Clutch was sent back to SB for testing to ensure it is functioning properly.

Update: South Bend reported nothing wrong with the clutch, they broke it down and inspected everything. Hopefully once i changed out the required trans parts are replaced, the problem goes away.

Off topic, however in NJ we started getting cold weather. I Have Redline trans fluid in my car, and going into second when cold is a crunchy feeling ( Only when cold due to the weather) . What fluid are guys using?

I've seen multiple people say that OEM fluid simply feels the best. I run Redline MTL and live in Upstate NY - I've never had trouble going into any gears even in the dead of winter. I might also have a different definition of "smooth" but I'm at 105k, changed the transmission fluid at 60k and 100k and don't have trouble in the cold usually. OEM would be my recommendation if you want to spend the $$.
