Alright lets finish this rascal up..
Next up is to install the cast iron sealing rings on the input shaft, carefully spread the rings in order to slip them over the input shaft and into their grooves.. After installing the rings in their grooves, "lock" the ends together before installing the shaft into the forward clutch..

Before installing the input shaft into the forward clutch, wipe a thin film of Vaseline over the sealing rings, then insert the shaft thru the clutch cylinder, carefully working the sealing rings thru the cylinder bore.. Then stand the clutch on top of a support (an old coffee can works great), and grab the sun gear on the input shaft to carefully twist the shaft back & forth to allow the splines to mesh up with all the bronze friction plates as the shaft is fully inserted into the clutch.. The shaft is fully seated when the face of the sun gear is flush to slightly below the face of the ring gear..

Setting up a suitable support in the press, place the clutch assembly on the support with the input shaft facing up.. DO NOT let the input shaft drop down out of the clutch or you WILL damage the bronze clutch plate splines during the installation of the support bearing.. With the clutch in place and properly supported, install the input shaft support bearing, lube the bearing, shaft and bearing bore with ATF.. Place the bearing over the input shaft and using a suitable mandrel (I used a scrap of PVC pipe), press the bearing over the input shaft and into it's bore on the clutch cylinder.. After the bearing is fully seated, install the bearing retainer ring and input shaft snap ring, making sure that both rings are fully seated in their respective grooves..

For the final assembly, stand the case on the output flange inside the assembly tray.. Take a dollop of Vaseline and lube the bushings down in the center bore of the planetary, then wipe a coat on the end of the input shaft.. Wipe a coat of Vaseline on the thrust washer before placing it inside the planetary.. With the thrust washer in place, squirt the planetary down with ATF before installing the input shaft/clutch assembly..

Grabbing the clutch assembly by the splined end of the input shaft, carefully insert it into the case, slowly twisting it to allow the sun & ring gears to engage the planetary pinions and allowing it to settle down on top of the thrust washer.. When fully installed, the splined end of the ring gear will be just above the reverse clutch face that is machined into the case..
