My car is moving under its on power now. Sound great, good oil pressure. I tried to post a video of it running, site won't allow that.

Having a problem with my 73 4 speed transmission. I'm no 4 speed guru. Shifts fine into 1st gear and then into 2nd just fine. Trying shift back into 1st gets stuck in 2nd. Only way to free it is taking the side cover off, move 2nd with a bar and start over. Guy helping me said that gear is moving to far forward and a (dog ?) locking it in. Had this transmission and a 72 rebuilt at the same time at the same shop and its doing the same thing.
Adjusted the rods a bunch.
Testing in a parking lot at low speeds.
Any ideas?

Was able to drive my car for the first time tonight. After 18 plus years of ownership, this is the first time I have ever driven it. Drove real good, straight down the road with good power. Couldn't be happier. All the time, money and set backs, disappointments, for me is worth it after that first drive.
