1986 911 Carrera Smooth shifting

Transmission and Clutch

Vehicle Information: Model: 911 Carrera Targa; Year: 1986; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2, K&N Air Filter; Total Mileage: 77,000;

I purchased the car about three months ago. I noticed that I could shift from second gear back to first when trying to go to third. At first I thought it was me. I had the shop look at it and they found out that it was the bushings under the rear inspection plate near the back seat.I had them replaced and it shifts fine now.I still question the shifting manner in this car. It has been babied and has seen no abuse at all. Yet, the shift from first to second is sometimes difficult and other times its great.Any ideas or information about this transmission.
