The bad thing here, is I do not have one apart to take a pic, I just sorta know from doing this, by "feel", please bear with me.
If I am wrong, tell me and we will re-group and try till its together
I believe this thing----WILL NOT---- go back together with EVERY ITEM in NEUTRAL
ON THE SHIFT TOWER:
I think the front fork is the 2nd and 3rd shifter, and the "stick" must be in 2nd gear position, (making fork move rearward, CLEARING THE CASE, to drop in.
The other fork is BLOCKED from moving (1st and reverse) AND REMAINS in the Neutral Position
(When one rod is moved from neutral, a "poppet ball", prevents the other rod from moving, thus keeping you from shifting into "multiple" gears at the same time, and locking the tranny up!)
IN THE TRANNY :
The big collar, UP FRONT (sycronizer sleeve) needs to be pulled rearward (locking 2nd gear IN)
The other syncronizer is at the rear of the tranny, It has a groove for the fork to ride in, and looks like a straight (fluted or gear) made on the rear.
If you push it foward and rearward it will lock gears together ( The front syncronizer may have to be in neutral TEMPORARILY to get rear syncronizer CENTERED (neutral)
Once you figure out CENTER of the rear syncronizer, leave it therethen put the FRONT one back in 2nd (front sleeve locked rearward)
GUIDE your forks into the SYNCRONIZER FORK GROOVES and sit the TOWER in place. install 2 diagonal bolts, then test operation.
Moving the syncronizers, may require you to spin (move) shafts or rock the vehicle to get them to move, A brass or similar punch may be needed to "GENTLY PERSUADE" the syncronizers to move fore and aft.
SHOULD I BE WRONG--try the tower in neutral and neutral tranny (both syncronizers, lined up in Center Positions!)
That should be you, Buddy
