You should be able to check for clearance with it sitting like you have it. Take the input shaft and set it on the taper bearing and check to see if there is enough room or if the syncro moves freely. You should be able to see if there is clearance or if the ring is against the angled face. I would assume you set preload in the same manner as you do with the standard t5 with a shim behind the race in the retainer. If its over shimmed the input can not be turned independent/smoothly of the output shaft when in neutral.
