trouble getting 85 lude into 3rd gear

ive got an 85 prelude si, it for $300,...was told 3rd gear was shot...but if i throw it in 3rd and hold it with all my might it will stay in 3rd and do fine...but if i just drop it in third it will grind and fall out...all other gears are fine....i normally just bypass 3rd and go directly to pretty sure that the bushings on the big bar underneith are warn (the one that goes to the side of the trans,...not the imput in the tranny) there a source for these?...

i had my girlfriend push it hard into 3rd while i was under the car,...and it looks like alot of play not alowing for the shift rod to conect the gear fully...its very and 8th of an inch!!!!!

Sounds like you could have a The syncros in the tranny for 3rd.
