Default Shifting issue

I hope this is a minor problem but we'll see. First I have a 90' Ranger 2wd with a 2.9L and a 5 spd. The problem is that in the morning it is VERY hard shift. It doesn't grind it just won't go into gear. After I have been driving a little it gets progressively easier to shift and after about 5 miles of stoplights it will shifts fine for the rest of the day. At first I thought it might be the syncros but if it was it should be hard to shift all the time. Now I'm thinking I just need to change to oil in the tranny. Any ideas or opinions? Thanks.

My 4spd 2.3L JUST started doing this 2 days ago.

The shifter won't go into gear easily, no grinding at all. Once it's warm it's great. I'm thinking low tranny fluid/ nasty tranny fluid.

Has a new clutch/ throwout bearing/ pilot bearing/ slave cylinder/master cylinder

Yep that sounds like the same problem. I changed the same parts you did about 2 months ago thinking that would clear the problem but of course it didn't.
