Here is first gear with a 2nd through 5th style dog gear, synchro ring, sectors and straps positioned. All that remains is to put the snap ring back on to hold all these pieces in place.

I noticed that the little oiling notches in the gear near the bushing (one at 12 o'clock and one at 7 o'clock) always had one lined up with the small sector when I disassembled the gears, so that's how I aligned it when pressing the dog gear back on.

By the way, the dog gear came from APE (used, but with very sharp teeth), the sectors came from DiFattia Brothers (one new and one used, but I couldn't tell which was new), and the synchro ring and straps were new pieces from IAP.

I'll give you driving impressions once I finish building my Spider. Tune back to this thread in 2012.
