Thanks for the tip. I would believe it is in the pan because when I pulled out the piston I heard something fall. Here is my question. After I recover the pin where do I stick it. In the end of the piston and slide that in or in the band and then slide the piston on to that. The hole isn't very big in the transmission for the piston. Not much room to get my fingers in there. Can it be accessed from underneath when the pan is off? I don't have much room as when I undo my tranmission mount the tranny doesn't come down very far. Must be my new motor mounts.
