Ok guys help me out. I ordered a kit online to replace my shifter on my 89 ranger. It’s got what I thought was the manual m5r1/m5od (not sure on the difference) transmission. However this kit doesn’t match the parts. I have included a photo of what I have and what I got. Any clues on what I did wrong here?

You need to use the transmission ID in the tech page, 89 5 speed is not M5.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Here's the info he's talking about. What engine do you have? Your transmission might be the fm146.
