Default Big problem after trans. rebuild

I took the 5 spd trans apart and had the diff pin tig welded and installed new "slippers" on the forks and replaced the plastic shaft bushings. I thought everything went alright but it doesn't work now. When the shifter is where neutral should be it is in a gear. I can't find neutral at all. Reverse works fine but all the other gears are in a high gear and won't move the car foward. Couldn't get the shifter in the 5th gear position at all. I didn't try taking any of the trans covers off yet. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Right now I'm really disappointed. I hate to think about having to take the engine and trans. out again.

Sounds like the fork rails were not properly aligned when you installed the shifter controls. Closer inspection is warranted.

Did you follow a factory service manual? When you tackle something of this magnitude, you usually need that information. Let us know how you make out. I do not have enough experience with manual trannys to help you here. But I have mine out and I am interested in what I might do to mine to improve the life of it. Thanks.

I think I might have fixed it. I took the end cover off and found that the input shaft didn't turn. Took off the nut and turned around the one part and it seems to turn alright now. I have to wait for the sealer that I used on the cover to dry before I put in the fluid and try it.
