that snap ring is supposed to hold that bearing in place, to help hold that input dealie, and then the gears are prolly the syncronizer doo-icker, which would explain why you couldnt' down shift and what not. sorry dude. i have no freakin clue beyond that as to what the heck to tell you to help you out.

Sounds like the snap ring that holds the front bearing in place. That probably came out, then let the bearing move which destroyed it, and the bearing parts destroyed the first/second synchronizer. You need a repair manual that shows a breakdown of the transmission. Local library should have a Chilton's manual if you don't. Manual trans isn't hard to rebuild, just make sure all the hard parts (shafts and gears) are in good condition. Order a rebuild kit and go for it! You could just put a new front bearing, snapring, and synchro in, but why? You have to take the trans half apart anyway, may as well replace the other synchro and bearings.

ha ha ha or woman woman woman....the front bearing was ok (the one behind the input shaft looks like little round roller bearings)the ones that fell out were tiny little bearings behind those that look like they live in a little round cage .the only damage i can see is a tooth on the input shaft gear is broken if i knew how to post a picture on here i would .do any of these parts need to be pressed back on if i take out the other two sycros

To answer the question about parts being pressed on, NO. Nothing that I can remember has to be pressed on. Of course, I can't remember much anyway. The little bearings that you are talking about are likely "needle bearings". They are routinely used between the gears and shafts. Like between the input shaft and the output shaft, if I remember right. I haven't had one apart for about 10 years. Off hand, I can't remember any snap rings inside the case, on the input shaft, but could be wrong. Have been before, then again I am married, so am reminded of that regularly. If you can e-mail me photos, I may be able to help you.
