92, h23a1 stuck in gear

hey everyone, been searching around, i'm thinking either the shifter fork is broken or synchros.

n e way i just purchased a 92 w/ h23a1 i knew tranny was bad, it was only 450 i figured it was worth it. i'm pretty mechanically incline. do all work at home.

car drives in what ever gear its in, seems like 3rd. shifter acts as if its in neutral. I was just messing with it and i hammered the linkage in the trans, and now it acts like it can go into other gears, except 4th, cant get it into 4th, but still no, stays in 3rd. even put it in reverse, lights came on but nothing. I have to keep the clutch pressed down or else it will die, due to it being still stuck in gear.

now I was thinking about draining the fluid and putting new fresh fluid in, bring it up to temp, drive a couple times around the block and see if maybe the trans getting lubed up with some fresh fluid will do the trick. been pricing synchros and cant find em cheaper than 300.

any suggestions. or am i right on it being either fork or synchros?
