Th400 clutch packs

Rebuilding a th400 in a friends garage, well the clutch packs that i removed in order and stacked for reference got tossed about and now i cant figure out how to repack the direct clutch packs and what not. diagrams or info would be a huge help, I dont think there where any waive plates but the rebuild kit has waive plates in it just to confuse me more, it had the apply ring then i think just a pressure plate, but again if anyone could help me id apreaciate it. the old plates all look like waive plates just in case your woundering why i cant tell, it was a mess in there thanks!

That may help you some.

You need to get an ATSG tech manual, it will help you immensely. Ron Sessions "How to Rebuild and Modify the Turbo-Hydramatic 400" would also be good.

On the direct stackup, you do not have to use any cushion plates. If it is a race only application, just use the flat plates, once the apply piston is installed in the drum you would put a steel plate, then friction, then steel, etc, until you have 5 of each (most stock applications), then the pressure plate and snap ring.

If it is a moderate street application or near stock, use a cushion plate on the apply piston first, then you can use the flat steels for the rest, or for a "comfort" application use 2 cushion plates in the directs, it will reduce the reverse apply harshness.
