We have a 2004R we are building and have a question about checkball placement (in the case) we are using CK's seperator plate.... and the mods in the valvebody are from the Trango 2004R-HD kit along with CK's new GM bluprinted pump with billet rotor and. 555" boost valve. I contacted Chris and talked to him about it and he said to just use check balls in the 4 "bathtubs" in the case. We originally had 5 in it....the fifth ball was the 3-4 acummulator checkball. Do we only need the 4 balls in the "bathtubs"? If we leave the ball out of the 3-4 acummulator, do we leave the 3-4 acummulator piston and spring in the case,or just leave it all out? I ask chris this..and he said it didn't matter if you leave it in or take it out...but not sure if he understood what I was talking about. What we were worried about leaving it out...thinking maybe it would cause pressure loss without the piston and spring being in there. What do we do with this thing? I would really appreciate the help!! Thanks!! :) here are specs on the transmission......
