Transmission problem
1987 Jeep YJ 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 150k miles

I initially stared having an issue with shifting a month ago it was somtimes hard to get into 1st and griding reverse. It got worse to the point I stared checking out the problem. Hydraulic clutch fluid was low so I filled it and it was fine. Then it kept draining and in turn I wouldnt be able to get into gear. I realized then the slave cylinder was leaking. So I had it replaced and the hydraulic master cylinder replaced. I also had a clutch kit put in(it was needed) the flywheel turned and a new starter ring put on flywheel. Then I get it back from shop and I immediatly have trouble with getting the tranny into gears intermittently(meaning it works OK 10% of the time) and grinds reverse to the point I cannot get it into gear. When jeep is off shifts into any gear without a problem. I checked hydraulic fluid and it is full. I can sometimes go into 1st from a stop easily and every third time it wont work. If im upshifting to second from 1st I have to go to third gear because it wont go into second. I dont know where to go from here. Any ideas what to do first? Then if it doesnt work what next and so on? If u need any other info I will supply it
