That's pretty common...I have to rev it up a little myself sometimes to get it to drop in gear....You will eventually get the hang of doing it without over reving and causing grinding or a clunk when it falls in gear...You get the same result from rocking the buggy a little as well, just hard to do when you're strapped in...

heard something about it being cause by a burr on one of the gears after 25 years or wear. This burr can be ground off but requires opening up the trans case which is not a bad idea after 25 years of wear anyway.
