Hey, i recently finished putting an MGW short shifter (its absolutely beautiful). However, I'm having problems shifting. when the car is at a complete stop it is almost impossible to put it in first without pumping the clutch 3 or 4 times, or giving it a little gas while attempting to push it up into first. sometimes while shifting into other gears i will meet similar resistance but i can still usually put it in gear without too much effort. I know its not the MGW shifter because i had this problem with the stock shifter too when i bought the car. I had hoped the new shifter would fix it.
also as a side not (i dont know if this is helpful or not) but right before i bought the car, a new clutch was put in. however, it was adjusted (and still is) so that you only have to push the clutch in an inch or two in order to shift. likewise, in order to get the car moving i have to let off the clutch a ton before it catches.
what could be the problem? how should i fix it?
