Swapping gears on MTX75 Focus MK1

Hello everybody,

Im customizing my MTX75 tranny out of a Focus RS MK1 to longer gear ratios so I bought a Focus (90bhp) diesel tranny with 3.42 final drive ratio.

I was going to swapp the pinion ring only but this is fix with output shaft so decided to pull all gears from diesel output shaft and press the RS gears on but stuck on 2nd and 3rd gear.

They are too close together to get any tool between to hold the 3rd gear only. If Im holding 2nd and 3rd gear together I dont get it off the shaft even pressing 28 tons!
I cannot see a circlip between 2nd and 3rd gear. Is there something holding 2nd gear?

Pinion gear is fixed to get it off the other way.

Need advice here ...please!
