Leftover Parts!!!!!!

I just finished rebuilding the transmission in my 94 gmc sierra. It is a 4l60e and i really need help figuring out where these extra parts go. One of the parts is a V shaped spring that i have no idea where it came from except i think it was somewhere in the bottom with the valve body and the other is a round screen that is about 1 1/2 inches long. it gets smaller at the bottom (or what i think is the bottom) where the o ring is. Does anyone know where these parts go?

Please help and thanks in advance,

Jason

No need to beg, Plenty of assistance around this web site.



How can you have parts left over after a proper rebuild?

One item you describe is a thimble filter. Your 94 tranny would need two. Both in the case under the v-body and separator plate.... Front one keeps some trash out of the lock up solenoid , 2nd one is at the rear of the v-body area for the small lube spray hole for the rear of the out put shaft.


V shaped item? Not sure what you have there.

got a digital camera?

early 4L60E had 4 filters in the valve body . 2 square / rectangle units on the separator plate......


2 round ones in the case. one near the lock up solenoid area. One at the rear area of the v-body where the govenor thimble filter would go in a NON "E" 4L60 .

4l60e

filter sounds like pump filter, fits in the stator and yes it has an o ring. the v shape piece sounds like it was installed in the pressure control solenoid filter to keep it from sucking together, Gil Younger shift kit has them maybe someone had installed shift kit before you started.

Any chance the V shaped spring is the anti-clunk spring for the center support??
Can you give us any dimensions, even rough ones?

Sounds like the screen he is describing IS the pump thimble filter. BAD DEAL.
Omitting that screen will yield SIGNIFICANT pressure loss, ~2/3 pump volume also.

Left over parts is a sign of efficiency.

Amazing...

I just want to give you guys that work on automotive transmissions for a living a pat on the back.
I was amazed by the various small parts,clips,seals, planets,sun gears,springs,solenoid's and valves that allow these transmissions to transmit power.
And that is not to mention the tasks of correctly troubleshooting the customers trannys.
