I couldn't find a transmission section. hopefully this is the right place for this question.
I rebuilt my 4L60E transmission yesterday, and put 7 new check balls in it. Now I'm ready to put it back in my truck and I found that I have 8 check balls that I took out of it. every diagram I can find online has 7 check balls. But when I took it apart I took a picture of the seperator plate so I would know where they all go back and there's only 7 in the picture. but I seem to remember there being one stuck in the valave body. does this sound right? I want to try and get it back in tonight but I really don't want to have to pull it later to add one more.

EDIT: it's in a '95 C1500 2WD 350

There should not be any check balls "Stuck" in the separator plate. It is very common though for check balls especially the 1-2 shift check ball to wear out the separator plate and stick in it.

The 4L60E has 10 check balls in total. Two of them are in capsules and pressed into the case. Special tools are needed to remove and install these capsules into the case. These you probably didnt mess with and are probably still in the case.

Seven of the remaining eight check balls are placed in the VALVE BODY side of the separator plate. Refer to your picture here. The one remaining check ball is placed on the CASE side of the separator plate right next to the 3-4 accumulator bore. Here's a pic.



**ALSO** If you had a check ball stuck in the separator plate you need to replace the plate. Take your VIN # to the dealer and get a new plate. They are less than $20

One other thing. It is VERY CRITICAL that you put the valve body bolts back EXACTLY where they came from. Placing a longer bolt where a shorter bolt goes in the middle of the valve body will lock down the sun shell and lock up the transmission.

you guys are awesome. I got it in there, the 7 others I stuck in the valve body with tranny rebuild grease. and not thinking turned it upside down and dumped out all the bolts. does someone have a diagram of which one goes where? my goal is to get it back together tomorrow night after work and back in my truck Sat.
thanks
