How do you know what position the shift drum has to be in after splitting the cases, or does it matter? There is no mention in the manual. I guess it would help if I said it was an E-series.

I always put mine in neutral when putting the cases back together. It shouldn't matter though. I guess some gear settings may be easier to get the shift forks set-up.

Ted, how do you know when it's in neutral?

If you look on the star wheel or turret that is bolted to the drum, there is a detent that is visually different from the rest of them.

Yup

If you want to go total overkill, leave the crank out and install the gears and shift forks. Pop the other case on and put a couple of case bolts in. Then you can run the transmission through the gears. This doesn't take that much time and gives you confidence that you know how to put it in correctly. Much easier to find out this way that something is off . . .
