93 Si wont shift fully into 1st 3rd or 5th

Hi everyone,
I recently bought a 93 Si H23 5 Speed with a slight rod knock, and decided to swap the engine for a low millage foreign exchange one I picked up fairly cheap.

Everything seemed to go fine, but now it wont fully engage into the top 3 gears. They go in slightly and I can get 1st to grab 50% of the time, while 3rd and 5th usually grab, but still don't have that full motion 2nd 4th and reverse have.

When you push it in, it almost feels like the linkage is hitting something to stop its motion. the linkage outside the tranny isn't hitting and the shifter in the car isn't hitting anything either.

The only thing that I can think of, is the shifter fork in the tranny got bent when the engine was replaced. obviously this sucks, and I'd have to pull the tranny to solve it, which Id like to avoid.

Just posting on here to see if anyone has any ideas or suggestions before I go through the hours of work to take the tranny back out.

Thanks everyone.

Turns out the previous owner had put in the wrong shifter cables. Swapped them out and she shifts like a dream.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
