Update on the trans: Clutch slave cylinder is leaky from what I can see in the inspection window, and the fluid is brand new meaning it must have leaked on the previous owners as well so they must have topped it off for a quick sale:
Trans had a little over one quart of oil in it. Did just fine until the last loop or two around the block and it start buzzing so I parked it. I also realized once I got the top cover off, that the synchronizer sliders will only engage if the clutch pedal is completely on the damn floor. lol
On the agenda:
1. swap hydraulic slave cylinder.
2. replace upper shift ball components as they have disintegrated and the seal boot is broken.
3. Swap shift forks (even though the ones I have are fine... I just already have the parts).
4. replace rear output shaft seal.
That should fix the issues. A lot of slop, low fluid, seals losing fluid, and a slave cylinder that wont engage until on the floor can cause some problems.
5. Will inspect clutch when I pull the transmission as well.

Added pictures to the first post as well.

Typicls air in system. Just wait until you bleed the clutch unless they fixed that. Easier to bleed it on ramps on sloping driveway nose high. Reverse gear engagement is criteria for well bled clutch slave.

Starting to get more things done. Haven't really worked on the car beside the first little bit I owned it since it was 50F and then dropped to 30's for the next couple months. Last week I decided to just go ahead and throw all the junk back in the truck and reassemble everything.
Interesting to see what just cleaning the interior can do to a vehicle.
Just need to solder the egr tube now to fix it and make a decision on trans route.
