I recently replaced my clutch with a MU 1944 Con O 6 sp south bend clutch and immediately started having problems shifting into 2nd gear. Everytime I try to shift into 2nd it grinds unless I really granny shift but I dont have any problems with any other gears...Any help? Someone told me after I installed it that south bend clutches will tear up your tranny, anyone heard of this or know what its tearing up?

I had an OFE and noticed a little of that, having to slow shifts down some. I think it has to do with the heavier mass your synchros are trying to slow down to get into the next gear.

you may ahve a problem with you snychroes, or 2nd gear. i'll bet its tranny related, not clutch.
