trouble getting into gear zf5

after I reverse, or if im sittin still, its really really tough to get the truck into reverse or first gear.

in order to get it into reverse, you gotta pull real hard then it makes a metallic clunk and goes in. first, it makes like 2 clunks when it finally goes in.

I think its a problem with clutch release issues. I have to have the clutch all the way on the floor to shift gears, and even then, I know its a HD truck trans, but I dont think it should be that rough.

if I let the revs drop and rpm match, it goes in smoother. so thats why I am thinking release issue.

also, its not leaking, and I think my dual mass is startin to take a poop...so theres extra diagnosis info.

I agree with the bushing, but don't take much else that guy says seriously.

The powerstroke help guy not Matt.

i pulled the bushing out in like 3 pieces. it was worn down, and the eye on the master cylinder rod was starting to oval out.

i popped in a new bushing, and the freeplay went completley away. havent driven it yet, but I will tonight. hopefully things will be nice and smooth.
