Maybe someone from the forum can help....

About that roller clutch in the picture: I always thought that the roller clutch is the replacement for the "B" sprag. Does it fits somewhere else into my tranny? Am I missing something?

I bought master rebuild kit for TH400 and everything fits except that roller clutch wich is similar size as "B" sprag, so I tought that it should be replacement for "B" sprag.

The roller clutch in your rebuild kit IS the design replacement for the sprag in the planetary unit... it IS the late design which requires the later design planetary carrier.

You obivously can not use the roller clutch in place of the sprag design. The photo you posted earlier of the 2 designs of the planetary carrier indicate the designs are different and can not inter change the roller clutch into the early sprag design planetary carrier.

If the sprag is in good shape, you may have to re-use it in the planetary carrier.

The roller clutch in your kit does not fit any where else.

Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
