    Hard to get 1st and second gear

    Hi I had a gearbox and clutch fitted a while ago but it's never liked going into 1st gear since.ive tried adjustment on gearbox side and it's still the same.its got a decent oil in box and a Valeo clutch.ive tried to adjust it on gear stick side but nothing seems to happen (unless I am undoing wrong nut).reverse gear is fine.its like it needs to be adjusted slightly so gear stick goes further to the left more when going for 1st gear.
