if the input shaft came out the small stud joining it to the rest of the input shaft has snapped.the reverse gear slides over the two halves to drive it .have a look in the end of the input shaft to see if the stud is still in there.To repair it properly you have to remove the side plates and fit a new stud .There is also a circlip on the shaft which stops the gear from moving forward.

Where are you based now ?have you moved from dunsby?
