looks like the guide pin for the accumilator piston in the 4th accumilator in the main case. when working on a 700 tranny in the vehicle the pin tends to fall out

You did have the v-body and separator plate off when performing the B&M shift improver kit install?

thanks! thats where it went! You saved me getting the thing towed to a tranny shop. good thing it fell out because when i took everything apart, i found a check ball that fell out upon assembly. Anyway, all back together now and the shifts are AWESOME. everyone needs a shift kit! thanks crosley! Mac.

Interesting, I just installed a shift kit in my TH350 this weekend. They're incredibly simple to install for all the crap you hear about how hard it is to work on transmissions! That and I thought I was going to crap myself when I actually saw what they charged me 70 bucks for. Namely, an instruction video, about 6 springs and a separator plate. lol, good for them!

BTW, this thread was hilarious to read, thanks for the chuckle.

You know, I put the full competition kit in the trans and it really doesn't seem to shift that hard at all. Eh, maybe its because my kickdown isn't hooked up. Anyway, not trying to threadjack or anything-
