My problem is that my tranny grinds 2nd and 3rd pretty consistently, and is hard to get into any gear... where do I go from here?? Synchros?

thought about it a little more, maybe try some different gear oil in your tranny. I know it helped mine

could you have a bent clutch plate? It sounds like it could be hanging up if It's hard to get into any gear.

If you had a whole new clutch installed including the master/slave cylinders etc. that doesn't leave you any other option than cracking open the tranny.. right?
