At this point you are ready to pull the gear stacks out. They have to come out with the shift forks and reverse gear all simultaneously. An extra hand would be very helpful. I ended up laying the trans on it's side so I could pull everything out at the same time by myself.

Gear stacks out

The shift forks will just come right off the stacks

What you're left with

And there you have it - gear stacks are out. My plan is to take the gear stacks to my favorite Subaru performance shop so they can swap the gears out. My understanding is that you need to setup a jig of sorts in a press to be able to get the stacks disassembled - I'll leave that for the pros. Side note: 1st and 2nd drive gears are part of the input shaft, so in my case I'll be needing a new input shaft in order to replace the shredded 2nd gear (as well as a new 2nd gear driven gear)

Reassemble in reverse order

Hopefully this is somewhat helpful. If you have to go into the trans further than this to get to the front diff, you're on your own unfortunately. Feel free to post any questions/comments!
