Does this mean 'main shaft, 3rd gear' & 'countershaft, 2nd gear' ?

I'm pretty sure you're supposed to swap the gears as a pair when you replace one, because although the other gear of the pair may not look damaged, it may already have some abnormal wear from rubbing on a damaged gear.
An analogy would be replacing your sprockets and not your chain.

I am not sure just HOW crucial this is though, depends on how badly the bad gears are worn too of course ....
