not going into gear

Ok so last dec I installed a new clutch and transmission (ok one from the junk yard) runs great shifts great. But I have noticed lately randomly when I come to a stop and go to put it into first I can't. I have to try all gears then back to first or second and sometimes I have to force it in.

What is going on? Any help greatly appreciated thanks

Check fluid level and/or bleed the clutch M/C...again.

I had the same problem..turned out I had a tiny leak out the bleeder valve.
