First gear syncro repair problem?

I followed the Pelicans rebuld for first gear and seem to have a problem. Getting the end plate and gears off was not a problem.. It was getting the end plate back on that was a problem.

The end plate is on but I cannot shift into any gear. I could with the plate off with no problems. I feel this problem has to deal with the reverse gears. Keep in mind it took hours to get the darn thing on!

I tried putting the car in 1st, in reverse, and neutral. Still nothing.

Now, with that said, what should I do to resolve this. The transmission is still in the car. Would it be better to pull the whole tranny out or keep it in? It just seems to be the reverse gears giving the problems. I know what I'm doing this weekend!

oh, its a side shift..
