Can't get into second gear. 81 special 2

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by John C Hannah, Jul 11, 2019.

  1. Just got a 1981 special 2 it had a bunch of electrical problems but I got through them all and acheived spark. But now when I get it running I can get into first gear just fine.

    But I cannot get into second. No grinding , just won't get into second gear .
    I put in 2 quarts of 20w 50 oil. And adjusted the clutch. Via the left side cover .

    Not sure where to start , I've never gotten into the cases before.

    Any help is appreciated
