Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

this is unusual in that most write about second gear jumping out. The responses to those questions typically address the shifter poppet balls and springs and also focus on the syncro rings. Maybe that somehow applies here too but I'd think the syncro rings would not affect first gear. You can find some of those post below within the past several months. I think I'd first examine the shifter if you did not rework it too. Sounds like it is not fully engaging and is being squeezed out under high load.

Good luck! Let us know what you figure out.
