Default Keisler T56 Front shift relocation kit

Anyone install one of these kits? Anyone ever DIS-assembled one?

I just put together my first one and the friggin 5/6/R shaft slipped off the engagement cam.. Ok, no big deal I think. I tap the roll pin back out and WHAM, it bottoms out on the detent ball.. WTF... I pull out the other 3 roll pins in the kit and a stock pin and notice it's a full 3/16" shorter than the kit pins...

Now I have to waste a whole drilling out a hardened roll pin and grind the rest of the pins down 3/16"...

Is it just my usual luck and I got the wrong pins, or are folks just putting in these kits not realizing that they can't be disassembled?

They look like roll pins from a T5.

That sucks and reminds me of the T5 pin over detent ball design.
