ax5 intermittent shifting issues

OK I have a 90 wrangler I've been dd since Feb. I've had no issues with the trans since. Up until 2 weeks ago it just got warm here in Chicago, which might be a factor.
Anyway one day it was difficult to shift into any gear. Up and down, so I let it sit for two days then added more 10w-30 oil to it. Shifted just fine until yesterday. Getting the same problem after work, hard to shift the high was 86 degrees. This morning it was just fine. Could it be the weather and the type of oil causing this? Should I try synchromesh?

Try redline mt90. It's expensive but I put it in my ax5 and it shifts amazing now

Hows your clutch hydralics? If they are on the borderline it can be hard to shift. Weather can effect this. Whats the oil in the trans look like. I run 10w30 in mine year round with no issues.

I have a new slave master, not exactly sure what my clutch is like but I assume its just fine. There should be no vacuum hoses going into the trans or clutch mechanics?

Correct no vacuum lines to the clurch system. What's the oil in the trans look like. Any metal stuck to the magnet on the drain plug?

Very little shavings in the oil, I've rarely grinded any gears as well just difficult getting into gear sometimes and its only happened on two occasions.
