    The other gears work fine - reverse etc.?

    Stock shifter?

    Have you thoroughly and correctly bled the system?

    If so; I would try this as a first step: Loosen the bolts so the cover just moves, put it in neutral so the shifter moves smoothly across the neutral position, gently put it in third, tighten the bolts.

    If you didn't have the problem before the new clutch, the synch didn't go bad over night.

    Do a search on bleeding the clutch - preferrably with the Mity Vac method. Let us know how you make out.
