The Miata (96 NA) sat for a couple of weeks. When I went to move it out the shifter didn't want to go into 1st. Started out in second and as I drove around yesterday it got better to where it shifted "normal".  We headed out for lunch and same thing.  In the back of my head over been expecting to rebuild the turret. Flying Miata is backordered but sound like that's what I need to do?

Even without a rebuild kit, you might want to take a look and see if there's any oil in the turret.

I would be more suspicious of the slave cylinder, honestly.

I should check the slave on my NB, it's shifting kinda notchy between 1st and 2nd. Clutch is starting to catch way down near the floor, too.

Hmmm clutch seems to be acting the same.  No grinding when pushing harder to go in gear.  But a slave cylinder is another Miata check list item.

Oh I'm sure this has nothing to do with it.

Am I the only one disappointed Stampie's car doesn't have an actual turret?

I'm going with slave cylinder too, but rebuilding the turret is so easy and makes such a nice difference that I'd do both.
