SK6 truck kit check ball questions (C6)

I'm installing the SK6 into my C6. There's a spring under the check ball (converter relief?) closest to the pressure boost valve. The picture shows you swap a spring (I did) but it shows the little seat that the check ball sits on but no check ball.. Am I suppose to use the check ball with this spring or not?

C6 converter relief valve was a flat shape with a stem on it that inserted into the spring. This is located along side the main boost and PR valve

It is the converter relief spring and ball (plus the little perch).

With the new spring does it use the ball? Or is it just the little perch?


I'm not getting a response by e-mail from the company I purchased it from...

No check ball is added there. The OEM converter relief valve has a stem into the spring. The dish area at the flat end is not for a check ball.

If there was a check ball there held by this relief check valve somebody put one there by mistake or thought they were helping.

The 2nd spring that holds a check ball in this C6 valve body is correct. TransGo often includes a special check ball with point on one end that replaces the round check ball
