I have a doug nash five speed with a hurst shifter and a centerforce two clutch. here is the deal, just months ago I had the tranny overhauled I spent 1200 dollars, they put all new synchros, bearings, and a bunch of expensive reverse parts,forks, sliders, gears, blah,blah,blah,,,,, well anyway when i put the tranny back in i didn't put in a new clutch. it was really hard to get it into first gear in the begining, but the guy at the shop drove it and said it was okay, said the synchros needed to break in. Now i also have a rear oil leak that is making the clutch chatter, also the clutch is really going out, on it's last miles, now months later it is still hard to get in first, (not as bad), and every now and then usually at high rpms, it grinds into second from first, and i'm starting to hear a little bearing noise from the shifter, is it the oil leak? bad clutch, or was the tranny not put right together? did these guys get over on me? I'm going to take it back to them and before i would like to know what I should say and know what i'm talking about, also did i mess anything up?
