Grinding 2nd Gear

    In the morning the first shift into 2nd usually leads to some grinding
now a days.  It was always hard to shift into second when I got the
transmission in.  If I warm the engine up for more than 3 minutes the first
shift is a bit notchy but no grinding.  I assume this is the synchro having
issues?  The trans has 110k miles now, running MT-90 synth.  1st can be
clunky as well when I come to a stop, but that doesn't bother me too much.
