Time to put her back together

Well guys I split the case on my 90 750 because the bike was stuck in first. After splitting it, i found that the shift lever actually snapped at the spot where it connects to the shift rod. I have the part on the way, but while im waiting for it, I was wondering if you guys has any advice for me when it comes to putting the engine back together? For those of you who have split the case, what should I watch out for when im re assembling it? Such as marks to line up and all that stuff. We took note as to what things need to like up with other things but I want to hear more from someone who has actually done this job. I will post pictures below of the progress iv made as well as the broken part. Thanks guys.

Probably broke the stud slamming it into gear. Need to check the shifter cams for smooth operation. Likely bent forks causing hard shifting so they kicked it harder.

Nothing as good as the fsm to tell you how and what to put together.

The previous owner told me that the shift mechanism broke when he was switching into first while coming to a stop sign. The shift forks like good, not bent or warped. I think he just shifted too hard too often and just over time after all the abuse the joint just snapped.
