Re: Shifting into 2nd Gear...
My first guess would also be the syncro. A "syncro" is actually 3 parts, one part is machined on the gear itself, the second part is on the item that the gear is to transmitt power to, (usually a shaft), the third item that can go bad is the coupler or 'clutch' that the shift arm causes to slide over and connect the gear to the shaft.
A visual inspection can tell you what is wrong in most cases, but you will need to find a way to look inside the tranny.
