I am not real familiar with the Richmond 6 speeds. How is it when you first start the motor and put it into 1st ? How about reverse.....does it tend to grind ? If the clutch is not releasing completely, it will make it hard to shift, but it should really grind going into reverse as there is no syncro.
Otherwise, I cannot think of anything. Fluid should not have started causing the problem all at once. I would give richmond a shout on Monday and get thier advice.
Hope this helps,
