T5 transmission

Hello i am currently rebuilding my 86 mustang with a t5 world class transmission, my transmission has a what i think is called main bearing ball and pin ? Its just a piece in the transmission that has the size of a bb gun pellet and a spring, i think the older t5s have them that hold something in place ?Well my question is, could i use something else like the bb gun pellet to replace the ball ? I still have the spring, but i cant seem to find anywhere online that part ?

Sorry i wasnt clear, its part 21 on this list. Not many people seem to know about it, my question is what can i use to replace it ?
I guess 1987-1993 T-5 didnt have them, its literally a really tiny hole, any help would be greatly appreciated thanks !

Use a digital micrometer and measure the hole it rides in, find a ball bearing slightly smaller. Some automotive locks use small balls and some locksmiths have repair kits with them. Bicycle shops will sometimes have ball assortments as well.
It's good that you still have the spring.

89 LX 5.0 5spd; Original paint, presentable. pro50 with setback Triax handle, retro 1965 knob.Cleaned and re dyed carpet, ordered Mach 1 upholstery in original scarlet and grey to match interior. Fresh gaskets on top, silicon hoses, plugs and wires. K&N drop in, snorklechtomy, freshened the rear end with 3:27 gears bearings and seals.

It's the bearing and spring that go under the 1/2 slider on the main shaft right? If so I'm 1000% , positive...I learned years back from the Bob Hanlon video and he says right there...ive done 10+ that style
