Won't go into 1st or 3rd ??? Maybe with a little more info I could help you. Will it go into 1st running ? Or will it go into 1st with the engine shut down ? Those Richmond trannys are pretty darn tough. Tell me about breaking output shafts ? What kind of power is in front of the Trans ?

The not going into gear issue sounds like bad syncros or bad syncro ring on the input shaft and or syncro ring on 3rd gear.

Pull the side cover to inspect for obvious. I'd be looking for a bent or damage shift fork. Synco or syncro ring on input shaft. Slider/hub assembly on the 1-2 shift may be damaged. Wishes we lived closer together so we could open it up and repair it for ya.
