Basically the gear clusters themselves i kept together when I removed them. I placed the "5C" fork on the left gear cluster in the slot. and on the Right side gear cluster I placed the "5L" on top and "5r on the bottom ...... Now as far as the shift drum I just put the nub/post on the shift fork into the slot it felt most natural in. I have no idea if your supposed to rotate the drum a certain way or put the nub in a certain specific slot since they just seem to encircle the drum in random snakelike patterns. I attached some closer up pics...maybe someone can see if its correct.

The shift drum just rotates in it's bore, and the strange little paths carved into it move the shift forks (which move the gears) to engage/disengage the different gear sets. You should be able to rotate the shift drum with some moderate pressure and watch everything move. If it's binding up or something doesn't seem right I would triple check that the shift forks are installed in the correct order. If you are moving stuff around by hand you may have to give the gear shafts a little spin as well to let the shift drum move through it's full range of movement.

Yea I know it must work nicely in the end , I just cant get my head around it now. At this point everything spins and moves nicely inside,... Anyway ive buttoned it all up and am waiting on some new bolts and springs for the shift mechanism.... Then I will continue the build and post new pics.
