    What do you mean by "missing" third gear? Missing to me sounds like a driver mod j/k

    missing 3rd gear sounds like a gate issue .

    Could even be the 3-4 synchronizer assembly.

    Think you're right. OP wasn't too descriptive of the problem so I just threw it out there.

    Is the problem at WOT? Or all the time? Is it shifting from 2-3 only? Can you shift from 4-3?

    Bent shifter fork? It's internal. If you did the drill mod and it's still missing, you could:

    a-drop the trans and crack it open to see if there is anything bent inside

    -or-

    b-take the car to a trans shop and have them look at it. You might be looking at a rebuild.

    it just does it at wot,and doing a power shift.run it up to 6000 let off gas,gear will go in O K.This is why did the drill mod.Was just wandering why it didn't help the problem

    I'm no expert either, but if it's at WOT only, I am guessing that is a hydraulic issue. maybe air in the line? low/dirty hydraulic fluid?

    I thought the drill mod was to keep the pedal from sticking. Don't think it would hep you get in gear easier.

    Correct. I believe it opens the line up to allow more fluid in for a smoother clutch pedal and less likelihood of sticking.
