Default Expert opinions needed (pic inside)

Hey all... got my tranny problems sorted out, but on closer inspection, I'm seeing that part of the main gear shaft has broken. The rear bearing has a portion broken, but it does not appear to impede the operation of the 5-Reverse lockout mechanism:



You can see that it's broken, but it doesn't seem to be a problem with the mechanism installed:



Do you guys think that I need to get a new bearing and have it installed, or can I just go with what I've got here?

Thanks for your opinions!

From the pictures. . i don't think the bearing is broken. The bearing is right under the part that is broken. . I need a better look at it to make sure though. . do you have any other pictures?

I don't have any more photos right now, but I can take them. I believe that that component is the bearing housing that is only extended high enough to hold in the circlip for the 5-rev bracket.

gotcha. . as far as i can see. . I don't see a problem. . as long as the bearing itself isn't broken . . i don't even know why there is a bearing there. . i tried to look up on subaru parts and there is no part number listed for that bearing, unless it comes with the sleeve and hub assy. The hub is usually pressed on the shaft and the 5th speed gear is "free wheeling" on needle bearings. The only ball bearing close to 5th gear is the one right behind it. I don't really know. <--these are opinions from someone fresh off completing my manual drivetrain class. . with honor roll

Thanks for the help - I figure as long as the part doesn't snap all the way around to the next gap where the ring sits, I think it's ok. I think this tranny must have been mis-shifted, maybe thinking a 5-4 shift and putting too much pressure and trying to catch it on the reverse lockout. The little sliding ring was a little bent and had clearly slid up over the shift fork for 5-REV at one point.

I rebent it properly last night, it slots into the space on the shift fork and can't slide out over the arm (as long as that extra gap remains intact in the bearing surface above.

We shall see if I eventually grenade this tranny!
