Triumph TR6 - First Gear won't, the rest are fine

Went thru my four speed, replaced a couple of bearings and all syncros,Reverse gear, new clutch, pressure plate and throw-put.
Clutch has a half to five eights travel, crankshaft shows twelve thousands end play (that's next to do) It won't go into first gear. Grinds terrible. Rest of the gears including reverse work swell. Took the top off and I can get it into first but it is the hardest of the gears to move.
What did I do wrong or what didn't I check/ replace?
