I'm suffering from the same problem that you've described. Someone below has suggested the snap ring.Have you checked it yet? I'm curious as to what will ultimately cure the problem. I've tried all the same things that you have.
: I completely re-did by tranny with a rebuild kit from Walck, replaced the mainshaft and necessary gears and bearings. I bought the videotape (can't remember the name of the guy who sells them - it's excellent!) and followed it very carefully. The gear which slides to complete the shift from 2 to 3 moves easily and completely from end as it should. I rebuilt my shift tower and replaced the ball bearings and coil springs in the detents, and they seem to lock tightly in place. I have tried a second rebuilt shift tower, and it also pops out of gear with that unit. The tranny is quiet and perfectly functional except for this problem.
: What should I be checking?
