Grab a line flaring kit from autozone and a tube of valve lapping compound, use the flare press fitting for the line size and some lapping compound to smooth out the flair and try again, after a cleaning and flushing of the line, wouldn't want that abrasive getting into the slave

Using a gear oil. 75w80 I think
Change it before you cook the shafts, either 10w30 conventional, syncromesh, or a manual trans fluid meant for hondas, I wouldn't recommend the actual honda fluid, it changed in 2004 and became much thinner.

If the oil is too thick it can't be pushed through the shafts and into the needle bearings the gears ride on by the case bearings, this causes the shafts to heat blue and the needle bearings to break apart, once that happens the guts are trashed, no rebuilding will be possible.
Have you tried in second to see if it tries to move? Just to rule out a stripped 1st gear hub, or possibly an axle popped out?
