700r4 TV plunger spring

I bought a beefed up 700R4 about 6 months ago.
Today, I replaced the TV plunger spring, with the BowTie Overdrives spring. When I was taking out the plunger, a ball bearing fell out. The ball bearing is about 3/8 in diameter. It was between the plunger and the spring. I didn't see anything in the BTO instructions that mentioned a ball bearing. So, I put the new spring in , then the ball bearing and then the plunger.
Should the ball bearing be in there, or not?
Is this a 700R4 mod?

I just pulled out my notebook of info that I have been collecting from Bowtie Overdrives and did not find anything about a ball bearing either. I even went to their web site and looked around for about an hour and did not see anything about it.

However, I could have sworn that the last time that I was on there I did see something about a ball bearing in there.

I would give them a call Monday for sure to make it clear where this bearing is supposed to go.

Cool

there should not be a ball bearing between the plunger and the spring.


The spring should be calibrated to provide the proper tension against the TV valve behind the spring
