    I had the exact same symptoms on a 1985 PreTaco, and it turned out to be a bad synchronizer.

    Hey wait now. I used to think that, but, and I haven't taken one of those apart, I've replaced a couple gears and a few syncros and an input shaft or 2 and it was a snap. Big problem is figuring out what you need. Not always obvious.

    Pretty sure you won't find taking apart the transmission in the chiton's guide though. Usually says "due to the complexity... " blah blah. Nothing to it. Easy as replacing pistons. Well, in my limited experience.
    Can't hurt right?
