Procedure for detent ball and spring

1482 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  O'Man
Hey guys,
I'm near the end of my rebuild on my Muncie M20. What is the best way to install the detent ball on the spring in the tail housing? I've tried several methods. Including, compressing the spring with a small screwdriver. I also tried this guys "shoe horning" method to no avail. Near the bottom of the page. Nothing has worked. This has been actually the toughest thing I have done on the transmission. Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you!:thumbsup:

darn shame the ball & spring aren't in the shaft instead. Then it would be easy.
