Did I install my Anti clunk spring and Overrun Band right? (T-350)

I couldn't find any pics...even in my book and the descriptions on how to install them kinda confused me....So I posted some pics....I couldn't figure out how to blow them up so its hard to see and keep to the size limit, but i think the resolution is high so..., could someone be a pal and save my pics and zoom in and tell me if it looks right??

Thanks

Band is fine but the retaining ring for the low support needs to not be on top of the anti-clunk spring.

Well Shoot, the closest thing I could find on the net for the anti clunk spring was this from car craft article http://www.carcraft.com/projectbuild/116_9508_tran/ #11:

"Position one end of the low overrun clutch assembly snap-ring retainer with its end against the anti-clunk spring (arrow), then begin to push the rest of the snap ring down, radiating outward until you get to the other end. If pushed down properly, the ring should snap into place and remain locked in position."

See the attached pic...I thought I installed it just like they did? Now Im more confused lol are they wrong too?

I have never installed the snap ring as in the picture.

Can it hurt the transmission or impair the function of the spring with the ring installed like that?

I'll throw in my 2 cents.

Based on the 350 book by Ron Sessions and my ATSG manual for the 700r4, the snap ring does not contact the curved end of the clunk spring. In your original picture, according to both books, the end of the snap ring would be rotated about 1/2" clockwise so the right end of the snap ring is farther back away from the spring.

To your original queston? I dunno if it will hurt/hinder the action of the spring. About all I could see happening is the clunk spring pushing the snap ring around a tad.

Maybe someone else will give a more detailed answer/opinion.

On the band question, I had some problems getting the servo pin to engage the band on my 350. The problem ended up being that the trans was laying on the bench and everything had shifted some. I finally stood the trans up on end and everything settled back to center and the servo pin then properly engaged the indent in the band. Just a thought.

Mark

Not to bicker or anything or w/e but according to my Ron Sessions Turbo Hydra-Matic 350 Handbook on page 199 it states: "Now, install the large, flat low/reverse-support assembly-to-case retaining ring. Work it into place with a small screwdriver. Position the retaining ring so it holds the anti-clunk spring in place."



I think I'll just leave it, whats the worst that could happen? Like you have said...I would think it would just slide the ring around to a point.

you asked opinions...... if you are age 16 as your profile indicates, I've built trannys for 2 of your life times.

you asked for opinions , you got them.

enjoy the tranny when you get it working.
