4r100 check ***** in valve body

99' f-350 7.3 diesel .......Ok yesterday I pulled up to the store -- left truck running in park.. came back out put it in drive .. nothing .. like its in neutral... but it did have low gear so drove it home slowly in low... fluid level good. Never had any problems before .. then all at once ??? pulled the pan today dropped the valve body .. found one of the 3 feed bolts a tad loose ( finger loose) .. tightened it back up ... now heres the problem . after dropping the accumulater plate i only had 7 ---5/16" Checkballs on the floor in the fluid puddle and all the info i can find on the web shows 8 .. but I cant find info on the 99' model .. anybody got the info on how many I should have ?? and location. I have found some pics showing 8 .. If i'm suppose to have 8 then I'm screwed.. if 7 which one do I leave out ? any one of you tranny guys have a spare 5/16" ball you could send me if I need an 8th one ? thanks ... gonna have to walk to work if I cant get this fixed quick...

5/16" seems kinda large. In any case I have a few extra checkballs from a recent rebuild but they are 7/32". If you can use one I'd be happy to send it to you.

checkballs

they definately are 5/16" ... they measure .312 .. the holes that they cover are very large also . the smallest ***** this tranny uses is 1/4" . I'm afraid the 7/32 ball would fall thru the hole . but thanks for the offer...
