If the linkages are out of adjustment, and haven't been replaced then having to place it in second to go into first isn't uncommon.
If the linkages and adjustments don't fix it, that that is usually the 1spd syncos are on their way out.........

Yes as matter of fact, I have the Luck o'the Irish...everything I touch turns to fertilizer of the bovine variety.
