That's about the best I can do for you on this. There has been a few posts about these trannys, but I haven't a clue where they were at.

The shift forks MUST BE LINED UP PERFECTLY center, and the shift lever MUST BE LINED UP PERFECTLY, oh yes the forks slide back and forth real easy if the shift detent's are worn or if the detent springs are weak or broken ( that's what causes them to pop out of gear). While your in there, not a bad time to change out the roll pin in the shift tower. One snap ring under the cone, and the whole shebang drops out. May as well change it now, or you WILL be back in there again when that 25 cent part goes out. :)

Something else to look at - there is a sheet metal plate (shifter stop) that rides between the shift sockets that the shift lever rides in. I had a Jacobsen where that metal plate broke in the middle. Once it breaks, it can move around and jam up the shifter assembly.
Look up the pinned articles on here at the "Jac Speed reducer removal" thread, post #14, pictures 7 (left side of the picture) and 9 (bottom of picture below my finger) show the shift stop.
Mine was broke and moved around to the side so you couldn't tell it was there. Shifter wouldn't move into most gears and gears were clashing. I had other damage to fix, but the shift stop was less than $10 - but you have to open the transaxle to get to it.
You can see it by taking off the shift lever/boot and looking in the trans-case.
May not be your problem, but easy to check for..
