well, got the valvebody off, pulled the seperatorplate, and as im putting the valvebody out of the way it slips and i dropped all the fracking checkballs into the trans passages.... got 7 of them out, but the 8th has disapeared somewhere, pretty sure it went down in one of the many holes and its up inside... i checked everywhere on the garage floor...
so, i guess my question is, since its a little plastic ball you think it will get sucked up into the trans and cause issues, i know if it comes back into the valvebody intact it will... i asked around and the trans shops i talked to say it should get chopped up and sucked into the filter eventually( as long as it went into the right hole). not really keen on tearing the tailshaft off and pulling the guts out for a little 3/16 rubbery ball -_-
and plus, if i decide to just put it back together, where am i gonna get anouther checkball? doubt i can go to my local parts store and buy one....
