Default Bad 5th gear keeps popping out found problem (pics included)

My car started to pop out of gear while i drive it started slowly where it would stay in gear and if i hit a bump pop out or if i was in boost it would pop out. i did some research and found plenty of people saying are 5th gear and synchros are going bad or low transmission fluid. when i filled up with new fluids it did nothing so next step was buy used transmission. luckly guy was seling one local for only $150 on Craigslist so i picked it up when i took a closer look at it the bell housing was bad where it bolted to the mount. tryed taking it to the transmission shop to see if they could swap out my bell housing with the old one and he told me as much as i will spend on that i can rebuild my own so i wen back to the shop and tried it myself i remember there was a thread about someone swapping there 5th gear and synchro by removing only the black cover. i started it and i think i did it correct lol wish me luck.

The two transmissions



Bad synchro



Bad 5th gear



Installed correctly I think?



If it looks good let me know first time ever taking gears out and swapping them out.

a pully puller didnt just fit so we mad shift a gig to make it work.

if you need some help or instructions i can kinda tell you how i did it the best i can without pics. the tool to remove it could not be found any where local and the transmission shop wanted to charge way to much.
