700r4 question

Hey guys I've got an 1988 700r4 and I can't get the apply piston out of the bottom of the case. My spring compressor keeps popping out of the luggs in the case. I can push the spring retainer down just a little bit but compressor pops loose if I go any further. This is my first tranny rebuild and from what I've heard I picked a good one. Any suggestions or tips will be GREATLY appreciated

Is your tool damaged, not correct?

You don't have to move it much, just release the tension on the retaining snap ring.

Now that I know that the reatainer goes down very little, I know that I'm going in the right direction. It just does lossen the tension. Also, I'm having a tough time getting the snap ring out. I can't find the pair with the bent tips anywhere. Is there anything else that I can use?

often the revers piston spring retainer inner hole is too tight to slide over the case . this can make it difficult to remove and install this retainer..

i slightly grind the ID of the retainer to gain clearance

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
