I pulled my trans and took it apart to check out the fifth gear assembly. Here is how I had it assembled:

Slider with the big chamfer out

Thing that holds the keys with the step out to fit the lock ring

Fifth gear as normal

Upgraded bearing retainer

Is something wrong with this setup? I think it's the only way that makes sense. My keys didn't seem really out of place either. Do the brass syncros have to go on a specific way? What else could be causing my fifth gear to pop out? My fluid does look metallic in the catch pan.

I also learned I'm using the wrong hydraulic throwout bearing for my pressure plate. It has flat fingers, so I should be using a radial bearing like Culberro. That's an expensive lesson.
