Why does that happen when cold or with hvy fluid?  One can go 1st to 3rd but
not 1st to 2nd? What is the difference in synchros or? Since both 2nd and
3rd have synchros....

I first drove my 1965 180 in the winter I could hardly get into 2nd gear 
until the gearbox warmed up so for the first few miles I had to go 1st to
gears.  Once I switched the original lube to Amsoil 75W-90 the problem
and I could get into 2nd gear on the first upshift of the cold morning on
way to work
