    953 transmission out again 3rd time lol

    ok after cleaning things up here i finally got the newer shift rails in and detent balls and spring and pin what a difference........now if anyone has ever watched steveasaurus 's video on putting the detent balls and the last shift rail in place ...he makes it look easy, it took me a good hour plus and finding the right tool to set the ball and setting in the rail but also had to switch ends on the spring and finally i got it ....had actually talked to steve on some tips today and had a great conversation and what a great asset he is to the red square forum now after i got things situated with the gears and all that stuff then took aprt the differential that was in mine and put in the other 4 pinions and got the sequenc of that done then comenced to put through the case and got it lined up and started turning stuff then noticed a binding well come to find out the heads of the bolts are to thick really so where it necks up on the shaft , now this the i think its called the 11/44 tooth gear the heads from the bull gear are just catching on the lip of the neck so i was wondering do they make a bolt like this with a thinner head?

    well finally i got some time too to dig into this took the gears out today and the culprit is a combination of things ........the spring that holds the detent balls was broken the pin wasn't even close to what it was suppose to be then looked at one shift rail and was shaved down hard in the notches or i think anyways so there was alot of things going against this so thanks to ebin were going to correct now so here is some pics some are crappy i admit due to i think i had some gear oil on the lense when taking pics
