trans. problem?

Lately my truck has been really hard to put in gear (it is a 5 speed). For instants if i am sitting at a stop light I will throw it out of gear and let the clutch out. When i go to put it back into gear it does not want to. I will let the clutch and push it back it a couple times before it goes in. I have replaced the clutch twice and have cut the flywheel everytime if that might have something to do with it?
thanks for any input.

I don't know, possibly synchros going. I'm replacing the 5spd in my Ford right now, for the same thing only worse. We lost our synchros for 2nd and 3rd, and then it started getting hard to put in first and reverse. Are you having trouble going into reverse too, or just 1st? If its just first, I'd be more inclined to say its a problem in the trans not with the clutch. However, thats just a shot in the Dark, I really don't know a whole lot about the dodge manual transmissions and how they work.

That's kind of along the lines of what I was thinking. They go out alot on the people that hold the stick while driving.

I know, thats a nasty habit of mine. When I'm in fourth I rest my hand on the stick in my ford. I'm not too upset though. The stocker has made it over 200,000 miles. And a Rebuilt trans was only $875. I really have to say Dan "SoGrand" is awesome.
