Sounds like you are one notch off. Have you tried installing in neutral? I have found a lot of times that I will bump the shift shaft on the lower when re-installing and it will pop out of gear. Usually if you have a bad clutch dog it shows up in reverse. I got by for a while by adjusting mine a little more to reverse at the motor but eventually I had to have the clutch dog machined.

Easy to damage the shift shaft or shift dog pin. Have seen it several times by guys trying to save money.
