I have recently installed a used/tight tranny and transfer case out of a '78 into my '76 fj40. I redid the clutch (plate, pressure plate, etc.) at the same time. The first thing I noticed is that there is much less slop in the shifter compared to my old setup. I am finding that I am having problem down shifting from 3rd to 2nd and then into 1st. The only time I experience the problem is slowing down to either make a corner or stop at a light, etc. I can shift to neutral but can't get it into any other gear. I'm not sure what I have done to get it back into gear. I tend to pump the clutch a couple of times then force it into gear. After it goes in, I am able to work through all of the gears flawlessly. What is causing this. I can't determine if it is a clutch thing or a tranny problem?
