C-6 Trans Build

Got a few questions about Frank's build thread. maybe some one else has been there? In the forward clutch I used the new style drum (w/ the .400 bearing pocket) w/ the wave plate, and was able to put 5+5, and used the flipped internal press. plate. The problem is that there is way too much clearance, (I can put another snap ring in) it ends up @ .080-.084 clearance. Is that ok with that configuration? Did I miss something? I used the same ring gear assy. that came out behind it also.
How can you tell which high/reverse drum you have? long or short spline? I need to figure that out so I can machine the right dimension snap ring groove. W/ 5+5 the clearance should be @ .060? Also the step cut in the press. plate should be .165 deep? x how wide? Thanks for any help, don't want to have to do this more than once. Thanks,
Mike

first check your stack height on your front planetary and ring assembly for the .400 deep forward drum pocket, there is selective snaprings for the clutck packs ie ; .043" .056" .066" ,076' .086" .096" .106" with a stock 3 clutch high/reverse drum with 5 cluctches you will not have to mod the pressure plate ,on cutting the new snap ring groove have your machinest with a .125" snapring groove cutter register in the orginal snapring grooves outtermost edge then cut a new groove .325" farther out leaving the section in betweem the old and the new groove

Hey Frank, do you rebuild complete trannys? I have a TCI C6 with your Transbrake V/B fix done over the winter but, if it doesn't work this time i'm looking for the best place to send it. And i think your it! I have been fighting sliding 1-2 shift for 3 seasons now and it's getting old!
