found loose part in TH400

OK, while i was changing the filter on my trans i noticed that when i shifted the gears it made a notice that sounded like something was loose. it was this link that i pointed out with a red arrow, normally their is a bracket that holds this link down, i removed it, and when i did i heard something fall down on the trans (the second picture shows what it is)

now here is my problem: because i didn't see where that part went before i took of the bracket, i don't know were it goes?? and im sure that it's important

HELP

the part shown in the second foto is a speed-O gear clip. Holds the speed-O drive gear onto the output shaft

sorry but i don't know the name of all the parts. look at the new picture, are you saying that the part i pointed out with a yellow arrow is supposed to be touching the part i pointed out with red.

I never commented on the first foto or the parts in it. My comment was on the part that fell out shown in the 2nd foto...

The parts you are now questioning ......... that is the park pawl and the linkage/rod that activates it from the shift rooster at the valve body.

what else do you not understand? Do I mis understand the problem you have?

The part you removed held on with 2 bolts... only bolts on correctly ONE way. Be careful.

Does the parking pawl make clicking noises as you spin the output shaft? If so, the rod with the spring loaded end needs to be replaced/repaired. The end of that link rod is ROUNDED over to hold the slider on against the spring.

Often a pieece of the rounded over end of the rod breaks off. This allows the spring loaded slider to move OUT further than designed. Then the park pawl will click against the output shaft ring gear when NOT in park.

hope that is clear as mud.......

problem solved, apparently when i messed around with the speedometer gears it must have fallen off without me noticing. when i checked the park pawl i thought thats wear that piece had fallen off.
im glad i checked that park pawl because it was missing a spring
