I should note that if I let the clutch out and push back in between 3rd and 4th gears it goes smoothly.

This is not the same thing. You have a bad syncronisor on 4 th gear in the trans. In your next post you mentioned letting the clutch out in between the shift. This is called double clutching. It was nessesary back before they had syncros in them.


They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

Thanks. I was afraid of that. And I always called it double clutching but someone corrected me once and said there was more to double clutching than that. Can't recall what he tried to explain to me but just in case, I avoid using that term when asking for advice from guys that know more than me. I want to be as accurate as I can.
