Make sure that the holes on the separator plate match the gasket. There are 2 separator plates (4R55E & 5R55E).

If i remember correctly, when i was going to try and do my valve body, i had looked at the ford tsb, and the 95-96 4r55e had the updated gaskets and plate, but they were not bonded, only the 5r55e had the bonded parts.

That is correct. I just replaced the VB gaskets in my 95 and the updated gaskets were not bonded to the plate.
