Well I got the transmission all taken apart today and found a couple blued pieces and a broken 1-2 accumulator spring. Any idea what would cause the spring to break? Also the Accumulator plate has some gouges in it im assuming from the broken spring. Should I replace this? I noticed pitting on a bunch of the steels. What causes this? Lastly I noticed some blueing on some hard parts. Can I get some input on if they need to get replaced or not. Looks like the forward clutch housing and the internal overdrive gear.

Thanks everyone!!
