The shift rods use steel balls under threaded plugs to hold them in gear. If you left one loose or didn't put the ball in then it will pop out of gear. Also, be sure to locktite all of the plugs that you take out or eventually they will come loose and it will pop out of gear again.

There was something else about second gear that needed to be replaced. I've seen this mentioned before, probably by MrMurph at http://geometroforum.com/site/. It might be second gear itself, the word cluster is insisting that it should be in there, I'm not sure. But if the synchronizer is worn badly enough then whatever it rubs against needs to go too.
