I recently replaced the baulk rings on my gearbox. I follow everything on this guide:



I just took it for its first run after they were done. All gears select OK however in first 10 mins 2nd and 1st were hard to select. 3rd and 4th nice and smooth. After 10 mins and after i drove at higher RPM's in 2nd it seems that 2nd has started to select much better but first is still hard and takes a good push to get it in.


My question is, is this normal after baulk rings being replaced? The gearbox felt quite tight after i replaced them. Maybe i have done something wrong or do i just need to drive it some more if so how much more?
