Default B16A With S80 will not go into gear

I recently installed a B16a w/ S80 Tranny and a Competition Stage 2 Clutch. I am not able to get it to go into gear while the car is running, if off i can get into most gears.

To Drive it i can gear up fine, but when it comes to gearing down, or putting it in a lower gear it will not work. i have to turn the car off, cram it into first, and start it up again.


All of this is in a EG Hatch. Any ideas first i was thinking linkage and if that doesnt change i will have to open up the tranny to see whats going on in there.

What do you think about this?

Pull the boot off the slave cylinder and have another person press the clutch with the car off, and see if the arm retracts. If it does, you have a slave cylinder internal leak, or a faulty master.

I have an issue with 98 JDM Integra Type R, 1.8DOHC Vtec, S80. Already replaced Honda MTF but no good. Gears are smooth as butter with the engine cold (I've checked all Gears, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and even Reverse) but when operating temp is reached it gets more n more difficult to shift and this isn't a problem with one gear. The shifter takes more effort to put it into gear. There is no grinding, no squealing at all. By the way with engine hot, even if I shut the engine try to shift it is still hard to shift. This I believe rules out issue with pilot bearing or clutch, has to be something in linkage cuz with engine off shifting the crankshaft isn't turning shouldnt be hard to shift. I suspect some swollen rubber bushing or i dont know. Please help.

I have seen this problem before, make sure your clutch is on right, and check your flywheel. My friend's issue was the flywheel was warped and it wouldn't go into gear.
