Default 2nd gear grinding?

about 6 months ago i replaced my clutch and flywheel. I have the triax shifter, and just the past couple days going from 1st to 2nd it grinds alittle bit while shifting. But if i go from third down to second or start off in 2nd there are NO issues at all. Any ideas what could be causing this? Something not aligned right or became loose?

That is your issue, I was running the exact same setup and had nothing but problems with it. Very hard to get into gear, sometimes the car would start to move with the clutch pushed to the floor. That spec's setup is junk. don't waste your time with trying to fix it, it is not fixable.
