I put mine in 3rd gear before putting it in 1st to stop the clutch and countershaft from spinning...goes right in.
I do the same thing for reverse.

How often do use 1st and at what speed do you attempt to down shift to it.

The only time I use 1st is towing my 5th, and it is still only useable up to about 5 mph, and that is with 3.55's!:shock:
