Re: reverse gear grind
Try this next time you start out, put clutch into 4th gear, don't engage of course, just pull shifter into 4th then push back to neutral then pop it back to reverse...
Just about every manual trans I had did the same thing (even if not grinding... then just fighting), putting it in another gear, 4th or 5th first would allow it to go right into reverse on the next shift, I think it has something to do with the synchros and the straight cut gears on reverse...
