Im part way through the replacement of the synchronizer and Im doing it without the tool my question is HOW exact does it have to be, are we talking dead on balls accurate or is there a mm or two grace?

I bought a replacement from a wrecker and I do not have the tool neither does anyone in my town shops or people in fb groups. I marked the old one when I removed it and can line that up with the new one but Im worried if Im slightly off it will all be for nothing AND I have a guy coming tomorrow to purchase the truck...!

also will pencil lines inside the housing affect the sensor like an old school distributor or will that be ok?
