I'm have a problem shifting into 2nd when the trans is cold. Sometimes it is stubborn to go into 1st, but 2nd is the biggest problem. Usually I have to just skip the gear and just go from 1st into 3rd. After a few miles of driving the 1-2 shift will improve. As for 3rd and 4th gears, there is no problem with those shifts. I rechecked my shifter rod adjustments and made and a one turn adjustment on the 1-2 rod, but there was no improvement after that. Last week I swapped out the stock Hurst shifter and rods for an aftermarket Hurst Comp Plus shifter and rods. I was real careful setting and checking the rod adjustment when I installed it, but again still I have the same cold shifting problem. When it does warm up it will go into second, but still with a little resistance. The other gears seem fine. FYI, I'm using Sta-Lube 85W-90 gear oil, GL4 in the case and the car is a 69 340 Dart.
