Possible manual tranny fix for 330
I have received a lot of good advice here over the years and thought I would pass this on for what it is worth. I have had trouble shifting into first gear for just about as long as I owned the car. The only way to ensure good shift was to first put the car in 2nd gear (or third if that did not work). Dreading the cost of a new tranny I put off the trip to the garage. I had them look at it when I was having a new valve cover gasket installed (smell of burning oil) and they came back with two saging motor mounts. They replaced the mounts and the tranny shifts perfectly.
Hope this helps!
Who knew? Valuable tip for my 6-speed.
