1935 Hudson pops out of second violently

TerriblePainTerriblePain Posts: 25Member
I am resurrecting a car that sat many years.  It has the straight 8, no electric hand, no overdrive.
I finally drove it fast enough to put it in second gear up and down the slight slope I live on.  It goes into gear smoothly, makes no strange noises, but will pop out of gear violently.  This is under slight load or lightly coasting.
I am hoping there is an adjustment for this.  It kicks the shifter hard enough to injure my wrist.

    Sorry, the second gear needs replacing.
    If you're stuck in a hole, stop digging.
