Transmission Fell Need Advise

I was putting my transmission back together and when I was out of the garage one of the legs on the bench I had it on gave out. The transmission fell about 2 1/2 feet onto the concrete floor.: It looks like it landed on the shifter tower because it broke a chunk of it off. Everything looks ok, but I noticed a little more of a noise when moving the input shaft. Heres a video of what it sounds like.

I just had a shop go through the transmission before this **** and they said everything was good. Should I take it back and have them go through it again?

Oh yeah if anyone has a spare shifter tower Im in the market for one.

If you have it out on the bench and the only visual physical damage is to the shift tower, then do this..... Physically rotate the input shaft and go through all the gears. If all checks well, then source a new shift tower and call it good. Mind you the shift tower may throw a monkey wrench into the shifting, but I am certain you will be able to discern between this and any other real problems.

Will do. Input and output shaft both have very smooth movement. Got lucky on Ebay and found a shifter tower for $4. Ill try the gears after I get a back home.

All gears have clean movement. Guess I got lucky with this whole incident. I just have to find another stud for the tower and everything should be good to go.
