    Removed my valvebody today. Lowered it straight down and found these nice pieces on top of it. You can see the dust all over the place as it was in the fluid. This can't be good but does anyone know if I should start thinking of a rebuilt trans soon? I was replacing the VB and Sol pack to try and rid the downshift clunk and delayed reverse etc.

    The trans may have previously had bushings put in the servo stem bores, if so it looks like one has broken apart. If it is bright yellow that is most likely what it is. A darker color could be band material. Either way it is a serious problem and needs to be fixed..

    It looks like the washer for forward drum to me. Not sure what caused it to get destroyed. The truck is very well maintained. =( Needless to say, I'm not too happy about it....
