hi guys, i'm having problem with my T-56, whenever i drive the car, the first time i go into fifth gear, it would always grind and after that it wouldnt do it anymore. Currently i have a willwood clutch master cyclinder, just order a tick MC, will install when it come in, also bleed the clutch. the car currently have exedy OEM clutch. would like some input from different user here and what else i have to do to get rid of this.
also going into reverse is never a problem.

Did you try changing the fluid?

what would you reccomend? penzoil platnium?

clutch and/or trans fluid, not engine oil.

I would bet the blocker ring for 5th is worn.
Or a shift fork pad issue, something likely internal.
Original untouched trans? What year car etc?

never heard of problems with 5th before, try shifting slower the first time, see if that is the problem, then if it is it could be clutch, or the gears are not engaging properly. sounds like it might be time for a rebuild, cheapest tranny rebuild i have ever done! can beet a warrantied 700ft lb for 1500 bucks!

Could be internal, best place for a rebuild is tdp, they gave me a killer price for a stage 2 rebuild,but i think someone told me they were out of buisness or something like that,but i would check them out first
