folks i did something really stupid, i'm trying ot overhaul my c4 tranny out of my 65 mustang. well i bought a rebuild kit and video well when i disassembled the valve body i cant remember if there were any check balls or rubber plugs. the video shows a little different valve body than mine and so i dont know where to put the rubber plugs and balls that are in the kit. i'm not even certain if there were any in it. i didn't see any fall out but who knows. i have tried with no luck to try and find a place that might have a closeup picture of the valve body so i could tell where they go but i aint having no luck i even thought about trying to find another valve body out of a early c4 but i really dont know what type it is. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks, wendell.

Being a 65 it might be the greendot c4 which had no checkballs but i think from memory it does have the check disc (i'll have to look up my info) unless some one has modified for firmer shifts that is left out .Best bet would be if you are able to take a pic of the two V.B halves and email to me ,i have some diagrams i might have what you need.

Ok
That looks like it is the green dot valvebody.It should have the D1 + D2 on the shifter .There are no checkballs but i have marked the flat disc that is used as part of the accumulator circuit which is used to give smooth shift in 2nd gear.You can leave it out will firm the shifts as most shift kits do.
That drum,try cleaning it up with like 150 grit emery tape.If it comes up smooth i'd say use it.If the blue marks dont polish away or the heat marks are still visible or slightly raised i'd toss it.The other drum being later you will find is different on the inside diameter.Any doubts on the thrust washers just replace them.If you get stuck for parts try Jay @ www.broaderperformance.com .
I do have a diagram of that V.B i can scan if you need it....Greg
