T-350 2-3 Accumulator

If your spacer plate has the 2-3 accumulator passage blocked, does it even matter if the 2-3 accumulator spring is installed or not? I would think that the spring also aids in cushioning the apply band servo, so keeping it installed would not matter. Any thoughts?

Either way, I removed the spring, added a spacer, then a washer, and replaced the e clip.

T-350 : remove the Accumulator spring or leave in, either works.

Cushion the servo apply for the braking band? I would think the spring under the T-350 servo piston. As I recall a T-400 coasting band spring will replace the softer OEM T-350 spring under the coasting band servo piston. TransGo kits come with stiffer servo spring for the T-350 trans, some TransGo kits have it , others do not

Spacing the T-350 coasting band servo ''up'' out of the v-body slightly will help with shift timing slightly with band apply when manually shifting the T-350 trans
