Well, last week Adam G. came down and helped me put everything back together.
I ended up doing just the selector spring, the reverse lockout spring and the front seal (plus the mod to change the rear shift coupler from an allen-head set screw to a hex head screw.

The car runs and shifts perfectly, way better than it ever has.

I still have some other issues to deal with, but this one is solved.

The other day I realized that the spring I need to replace can be done without completely disassembling the trans. It can be maneuvered out though a gap in the shafts so I didn't even need to remove the differential!

So I got that figured out and have been trying to work out solutions to two issues.

1. How to get the shift lever to return to the 2/3 plane when the 'old style' spring returns it to the 4/5 plane.
2. How to modify or strengthen this spring...

Well, I've got the diff opened up. I cleaned up the outside of the trans before draining it because I didn't want any of the crud from the outside to end up inside.

I guess the trans with the fluid weighs about 60 lbs or so. You can lift it by yourself, but don't plan on carrying it far!

I replaced the reverse lockout spring and put the cover back on to test it. To my layman's touch, it feels like that's the way it was before it went bad. It still rests between...

Well in the past few days I got some help from Adam who came down to get me past my nervousness and just pull the damned thing!

We got the cross member dropped and everything seemed clear except the bolt on the collar between the drive shaft (high speed shaft?) and the transmission. The bolt wouldn't drop out because it was hitting the rear edge of the TT. We also couldn't get any play on the trans moving back.

It turned out that a) There are 6, not four 17mm bolts...

I plan to replace the input bearing (not shown) as well as bearings #42 and #46 as well as everything marked marked 'gasket' (5) or 'seal' in this diagram (17, 19, 34, 49) or O-ring (31, 35) which I'm hoping are all part of the kit.

Once I get the part numbers for all of these I'll add them as well as pics as I work my way through.

Wish me luck!

BTW- I'm working from the 'Manual Transmissions for Eight Cylinder Model Series' training manual that came...
