    Ok so just got the transmission back for the second time from the junk yard!! Took it back cause it was grinding shifting from third to fourth gear! And from downshifting from 3rd to 2nd you would have to force it in! Now Those problems are gone only problem i have is when i try to shift fast from 1st to 2nd gear it grinds! If i shift shlow its fine!! Any Ideas?

    grinding gears like that is typicaly caused by worn syncronizers in the trans. You could try a full synthetic oil in the trans to smooth things out a little check into amsoil. http://www.amsoil.com for the prop type for your trans.

    ^That.

    Just understand you got what you paid for. If you want a better operating trans- Rebuild the one you have or order one that is rebuilt.

    Until then...Just Remember-Don't fast shift from 1 to 2 and you shouldn't notice any problems...
