FWIW all my pics still work on the old forum with details on step by step instructions.

Well if you get a B14 trans.. unlikely to have popout.. or even better, B15..

Quick little (or big) update - pics later

Got the transmission housing back last weekend from the machine shop. He wasn’t able to get the entire thing welded by the time I needed it so I took it back with at least the threads fixed. Went back to the shop to assemble it which was pretty simple thanks to Nissaneggs thread and pictures I took during the tear down happened.

The shift fork mechanism was a bit of a pita. I snapped one of the 3 bolts that hold it down (of course on the last turn while tightening them lol) managed to get the bolt out and replaced all three with stronger bolts. Managed to seal it up and decided it would probably be best if i let it sit for a day or two for the silicon to dry up and decided to go back to the shop today For the install.

Got the transmission in the car today and was able to drive home in 5th gear! I’m stoked to know i was able to tear it apart and put it back together without having extra parts or bolts left over lol.

Big smile on my face right now. Next job on my list is to rebuild the transmission I took out today and have it as a back up.

Thank you to all who helped and chimes in!

Congratulations. It's a good feeling when a plan comes together and something you fixed with your own hands works like it should.
