Retainer ring
Hi yall. I just recently put my 1988-1990 nv3500 gear mesh assemblies back in the rear half of the transmission case and im having a hard time getting the "c" ring retainer for rear main carrier bearing back in place to bolt it place :mad: Is it even nessesary to have it:confused: Anybody ever work on these transmissions before?

If c-ring was not needed, the factory would not have wasted the time machining a groove for it nor have wasted the money buying it.

Its not realy a c ring or snap ring. Its a c shaped piece of metal with three threaded holes. The bolts go through the case and bolt in on the sealed bearings race. Its evermore being a pain to get the thing to line up with the bolt holes in the case.
