Change that fluid! Could save you big bux down the
road... On engaging first; stop the spinning gears in
the trans before engaging first by moving the lever
toward third (with the clutch dis-engaged). Makes
engagement of first much easier and saves
wear-and-tear on that frequently used first-gear
syncro by sharing the load on the third-gear syncro.
Werks for rev too (no grind-oh), but use 5th first.
(duzzat make sense?)
