HELP the ax-5 clip and collar problem

Hello, Im doing the colloar on my ax-5 everything has gone perfect. I knew it would not last. I took the back of the trans off and sure enough the gear was loose. I took the gear off to inspect and now I don't remember which way it goes on, and I cant find a picture. Also, I found a metal ball kind of like a ball bearing where does that go. My last question, The shifter detent up where the actual sift rod goes there are two of them. I removed them and one looks great and goes in and out fine, the other is slow to go in and out and is alot smaller???? Thanks for your help

I can't recall which way the gear goes its been about a year since I had it apart. The little ball probably goes into one of those torx plugs on the side of the tranny. When I pulled mine apart and removed those torx plugs there was a spring and a ball that rides on your shift rail.

The gear goes on the output shaft like the one in the top of this picture.


The ball is probably the one shown here, in the cluster gear shaft.


Here is a bigger picture of the cluster gear shaft.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Thanks for the help. Whew, this is my first time ever tearing apart a tranny. I must say that this is a repair that anyone can do. Again, thanks
