Default M5R2 shifter rebuild kit

I just purchased a shifter repair kit for my M5R2 tranny, with no instructions.
The existing shifter kit was in pieces so there was no way to confirm the installation sequence.

The kit includes the three screws, the boot, top cover washer, 2 shift sockets (identical), and the top pins.

I'm thinking that the sockets go top and bottom on the shifter ball, with the washer on top of the upper socket.

I think also that I'll have to remove the existing top pins to replace the lower socket, if in fact the socket goes below the pins.

Is my thinking correct or does anybody have any advice on this? Thanks!

Well, I figured it out.

The sequence is exactly as I postulated. You only have to remove one pin to install the lower socket. Be sure to remove the old gasket as that contributes to stack height for shifter ball clearance.
