Default Shifter popping out of first gear!

For about a month now, my shifter keeps popping out of first gear. Now, its to a point where I have to hold the shifter in first gear with my hand till the truck starts moving for it to stay in first gear. All the other gears work fine. I did replace the shifter seat and bushing but that didn't help. Any thoughts....88 Toyota Pickup W56 5spd..

Default Poppin' out eh?

Bugger, I had the same trouble with my L52 H.D. Turned out to be worn shifter forks. Try Marlin Crawler. Maybe you can replace the forks on your W-series without a complete tear down. Good luck!

Typically that's a worn synchro, though it will also happen if you chip a gear tooth too badly. Tranny rebuild or new tranny.

Who rebuilt it, and what are they calling a rebuild? I don't know how it works in the Toyota world around here, but I've seen VW "rebuilds" that were nothing more than a power wash and some new gaskets. Not saying that's what happened, but the two theories posited within the context of a recent rebuild both point to worn parts being reused that shouldn't have been. The last time I saw a tranny do that (in a '60 bug) it was a chipped 3rd gear from a bad downshift. The three or four times before that (all bugs and one bus from '60 to '78) were worn first gear synchros. Different makes and models, but trannies is trannies.

Joe at CTS rebuilt it, using OEM parts....He came recommended.....

Joe didn't half ass it and he's probably right.

But also make sure your motor and rear transmission mounts are still sound.

Definitely check this. It seems like it'd be obvious, but it isn't, and certainly a possibility since you had a rebuild done, and likely done right. I've heard of this being an issue numerous times on the interwebs, and its a reasonably cheap fix.
