Default Pg1 gearbox rebuild

WHY ARE THESE GEARBOX'S SUCH A PAIN IN THE PEACH!!!!!! aaaarrrrrggggghhhhh 2 hours to get the top casing on and built back up because of the 5th gear dog, then the dog just drops down another 3mm and it drops on no problem, and now I still cant get 5th, so back out it comes again to see if I've bent another baulk ring wire FFS!

And here is the offending wire ring!

Yeah he probably has the down side is once you remove the ring, the gearbox can only be used for spares I had a look on Rimmers and you can buy the complete 5th gear syncro including the baulk ring & wire spring for £ 374
