Photos from yesterday. Transmission came out easily but removing the stuck shift pins caused the greatest headache. The wooden dowel method worked perfectly, and I'd recommend it to anyone who attempts the job next. Hammer the dowel in as far as it will go, then yank vertically to remove the pin.
As Randy hinted, getting the 5th/reverse liners out are even more difficult. I severely mangled mine in the process. The sharp, pointy tool is what I'd recommend people to use to deform the liner with minimum damage to the sleeve. I buggered my sleeve pretty badly but cleaned it up with 400 grit sandpaper before reassembly.
Still, my shifter does not move as smoothly to the right as the left. The strange coating on the inside of the bushing isn't exceptionally smooth.
Reassembly was mostly smooth except for the starter bracket. It took me about an hour to realize that the metal transmission gasket was interfering with the starter.
