T150 rebuild gone bad...

So, my T150 rebuild has now taken a $#&*^% turn for the worse. After a bit of trial and error, I decided to install the rods with the shifter levers in the orientation I predicted. There is a small little eliptical ball in a crevice between the two shifter shafts. While tapping one of the shafts in place, I broke out a small piece of the transmission housing top casing that holds the ball in place. @#%&!! First, what is the point of this ball? Second, !#%&!!! Can it be ran without this ball and piece missing? Anyone have a spare T150 shifter top for trade or sale?!!!! Thoughts, ideas, advice, please??!!

Im guessing thats an interlock so one rod cant be shifted if the other is in a certain position? Or it could be an interlock that locks the rod in place when its shifted into gear. Either way I wouldnt trust anything to hold that piece in place. It breaks off again on a hard shift abd it sends pieces into your gears.

@ Dborns, yeah I know. All I can do is make lite of the situation. Im working on getting a new top. Anyone have any suggestions how tho get the rods in with the interlock in place without putting pressure on the casing?
