Transmission questions from new owner

Sitting in my 87 930 cleaning the interior and accidentally shifted it into gear without depressing the clutch while the car was off. I noticed that I could easily shift into all the gears with no resistance. I've had other card with manual transmissions before and I didn't think you were supposed to be able to do that without the clutch depressed. Any thoughts? Does my clutch need adjustment or is this normal? Otherwise the car shifts pretty well when driving occasinally I noticed a little grinding when putting into reverse and sometime doesn't want to downshift into first. The transmission is a stock 4 speed (915?) and I believe the po had a lighter (sport) flywheel placed in it. Thanks.

I believe that all manual transmission vehicles can do "no clutch" gear changes when the engine is off and the flywheel is still (this has been the case with every manual transmission car I have ever been in - including my 930) . . .

As long as the gear selector teeth and synchro slider teeth are lined up correctly they will engage without pressing the clutch pedal. Otherwise don't force them without pushing in the clutch to let the input shaft and gearset selector teeth turn a little as you engage them or you will be causing wear to the selector teeth, and damage to the shift rods, shift forks, and synchro unit parts if you really force it.
