Can U run it through the gears without the engine running? If so, and it "grinds" with the engine running while trying to engage 2nd gear, I'm with widetrack. Sounds like problem with synchro. None the less, you should repair the bent rod under the dash. May not be fully depressing the hat.

I edited the thread title. We dont use : " Please HELP, HELP, NEED HELP" as thread titles here.

Please place proper information in the thread title. It helps the membership and the search feature on Hotrodders

I'd vote synchro's. The T90 in my Willys did the same, but in third. Learn to double clutch, it's cheaper
