First time poster here, I just received my Mini from Japan a week ago. I have run into an interesting problem, I cannot get the car into 1st gear. The car will go into 2nd, 3rd, 4th without issue but when I attempt to go into first and release the clutch it will not engage the gear. If I push the shifter with all my strength and release the clutch and get some engagement. I have checked the roll pins and the shifter ball and everything seems to be moving properly and nothing is out of place. Any ideas as to what I have going on?
