Unhappy Need help ASAP!

Ok, I got a B&M TransPak for my TH350 and everything's been goin good, but when I pulled out the boost valve sleeve to change the spring, I can't get it to go back in.

I think it's because one of the little metal thingies hits the boost pressure regulator and so it keeps the sleeve from going in all the way.

What I want to know is, is there a way to get it in there? Or can I just leave out one of the metal thingies? I'm trying to get this done tonight. I don't care if it's midnight by the time I'm done, but I want to get it done TONIGHT.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Yeah, I've narrowed it down to the metal thingies touching each other and causing the sleeve to stick out too much, so can I just leave it out since it won't let the sleeve go in?

Anybody?

===== no , you cannot leave the boost valve parts out.

some vasoline will hold these valves in place if that is part of the problem you are having. dont use wheel bearing grease

Uh...

Why can't I use wheel bearing grease? Please don't say it will kill my transmission because the FRICKIN instructions said to use grease ( I assumed they meant bearing grease) to hold the gaskets in place and to hold the check ball in place.

I already bolted the valve body and filter back up and hooked up the detent cable and the manual control linkage, so PLEASE don't tell me that I have to take it all off and wipe off the grease.

Wheel bearing grease does not mix well with ATF. Use petrolium jelly.

So...does that mean it will kill my transmission or will it just kind of kill the fluid for the first and/or second fluid change?
