Need Quick AX5 Assembly Help

Im in the process of reassembling our AX5 after replacing a spun 1-2 syncro. Im at the point of assembling the shift forks and have a detent ball that I cannot figure out where it goes. Its the smaller oval one, about .5" long and is the ONLY one. The other oblong detents are much larger in dia. Pic attached of the detent in question, as well as a pic of the shift fork assembly.

If someone can point to where this little guy goes, It would be much appreciated. Thanks for all the help.

Ok, think I found it a home. This is the only shaft that has this type of hole.

Put it shift shaft back in with that detent ball in that slot, fit the rear case on, clamp it in place, bolted in the shifter and it feels like ive got 1-5 and reverse!

After nearly 2 years waiting on me to rebuild the trans, the beast is back on the ground running. Short test drive was successful, trans seems to shift just fine. Gotta few minor things to do before its road worthy, then its on to the cosmetic upgrades and other mods.

I just finished rebuilding two of those transmissions and the only thing that I stumbled on a bit was the location of the detent balls and springs and pins. Once I found a detailed diagram of an AX-15 then it went smoothly. The second one I didn't even look at the manual. I am glad it worked out for you.

Hopefully yours will work out too. I found that the springs in the intermediate plate were all the same length, and the one short one was in the rear case half. I too looked at quite a few exploded views. The couple of pieces I questioned, never seemed to be illustrated on any of them.
