Last things first. $125 is an excellent price for a sideshifter core. You'll have exactly what you need to fix 3rd gear.

I suspect that your synchro is OK, but the slider and the dog teeth are getting done. And on 1st gear too. Even with a synchrochange, you get wear on the slider everytime you shift into gear. Eventually, they wear out. The points become blunted and what you describes happens.

Next investment: The two special tools for the tranny (shift fork alignment tool and the dog teeth remover).
