Wow man... that took talent, ANY metal bearing that size should be fine, BUT I am unsure of anything ANY bigger... Im sure some place like TCI that builds trannies could get you the part, but so soon is a bit hard ... You wont be able to just walk into carquest and get a new one... If you can get a ball bearing exactly that size, itl work... try that for now... GET THE SIZE EXACT!

OMFG.... sometimes i think i m the stupidest person alive... i jstu spent 5 hrs looking for acheck ball.. and then i jstu re-read the directions and it said for jheavy duty use two balls.. for street strip (what i wnat) use 1 ball... and 1 ball is how many i have9check balls that is, not real balls)... OMG.. now obviousy i jstu wasted an entire night and 40 bucsk ona shift kit that had already been installed when the guy rebuilt the tranny, and since i modified that plate like the instructions tell u too, i can;t take it back... but did the guy tell me that he had installed one?.. no .... although now i can say to people that without a doubt, i have a b&m shift kit...... (woopdy doo... all thsi work for that)

Hey man....I really hate that something like that happened to you but I got a really good laugh out of the line "for heavy duty use 2 balls", lol. If it makes you feel any better it took "balls" to admit that you didnt need the second ball...lol. Later, HRS10
