I guess I'm late to this party, sorry.

Don't assume anything is shimmed right. Every 6-speed I've worked on is loose somewhere. The manual I have does give shaft lengths but that doesn't mean much; I always check them the old-fashioned way (shaft protrusion vs. cover depth). I've measured a bunch of cases and covers and have a decent idea of what they should be. They're generally repeatable within about 0.05mm.

Again, none of the numbers mean anything. Measure your parts as if it were an Airhead tranny.
