Default 5th Gear slips out when accelerating

I rebuilt my transmission 6 years ago and added a TSX 6th gear to my 5spd EP3 tranny. I replaced a blown 2nd gear and any synchros that needed it.
Upon assembly, from the first time I drove it post rebuild, 5th gear would not stay in unless I was completely off the gas. As soon as I touch the gas it slips out.

It does not grind, just slips out. I have dealt with it for 6 years but now that the tranny is out, I want to fix it.

Does any one have any ideas?

I considered that I forgot to replace the ball and spring for the shift fork, but they are all there.


EDIT:

I have been told on H-T and CRSX to check/replace the 5th gear locking ring. would that be whats pictured here?



And here are the diagrams for the EP3 5spd, RSX-S, TSX. What part would I need to replace. Again, this is a 5spd EP trans with TSX 6th gear.

Someone responded to my thread on H-T suggesting to check the locking ring around the syncho. I should be able to crack the tranny open over the weekend and check it out. I'll let you know.

Locking ring for sure. Check the wear of the detent balls on the ends of the forks. Check that the detent spring and ball channel in the case isn't clogged with pasty fluid and ground off synchro metals.

Replacing the synchro isn't required unless it doesn't meet specs. There is a thorough rebuild thread here, and one on EPHATCH that I wrote up (6 speed trans rebuild) that provides pics and specs. You can actually google it (k series 6 speed rebuild) and the thread is usually in the top 5 returns
