59 3 Speed Snap Ring HELP!!!!!!!!!!

ok here is a picture of the snap ring im trying to install on the inside lip of this 1959 3 speed output shaft bearing. I have tried everything to put it in including a piston ring compressor the ring is way to strong and it seems impossible to fit down in the inside diameter. Can some one point me in the right direction?Click the image to open in full size.

I think that it goes in the groove in the outside radius of the that bearing.

no....on the 59-60 f100's the ring goes into the front of the bearing and acts as a riding surface for the low/reverse gear to ride on....my question os how do i get that sucker in there cause after i popped it out of there its damn near impossible to get in but im sure there is a certain way to do it

Notice that the output shaft bearing has a groove in it. What would one assume fits into this groove since it isn't there just for looks?

8M-7030-A .. Output Shaft Bearing Snap Ring.

In front of the output shaft bearing is another snap ring: 8L-7064-A .. 1.224" I.D.

Here is the reason why taking pics before the trans is dis-assembled is important, especially if one has no shop manual or parts catalog.

dummy...thanks for your input however getting down to where the snap ring went wasnt what you think...in the 1959-160 3 speed trans there is an extension tube the output shaft slides into the extension and seats up againt a stop then the snap ring in question goes into a grove on the inside of the extension housing to keep the bearing flush against the stopped part of the extension.

These two snap rings were used from 1948 thru 1962 on all the Ford Light Duty non syncro first gear 3 speeds, installed in full sized Passenger Cars, F100's.
