DTCs with PTP shift solenoid?

So I changed my ATF today and installed my PTP shift solenoid. Get everything buttoned up and it throws P0768 and P0765, both relate to the solenoid, take it back and swap back the stock on and it works fine. I had the electrical plug at the 5 o'clock position was that my problem? I've hear both the 5 and 7 position. Also i forgot to put the c clip back on my stock solenoid and then remember to, and when the clip was off it still threw codes but with the clip on it was fine, im assuming this clip is a ground? All the other solenoids the c clips are on the bottom facing up, if i reinstall the PTP one does it matter the position of the c clip? should it be up and down or up and down in correlation to the new solenoid since it is tilted?

Ordered a DD solenoid from Gary waiting for it to arrive. From what I have read the orientation doesn't make a difference.

The one from PTP must be the gogo DD solenoid. It will either be in the 5 or 7 o'clock position when installed. Ive been running one for a few years. The c-clip doesn't ground anything. It keeps the solenoid in place so it doesn't slide out of the solenoid body.

I'm not sure since I haven't run the PTP solenoid. Didn't have any problems with the solenoid I bought from Doug; no codes or anything like that, but it was oriented differently like you mentioned.

I installed this Sol. and didn't have any issues, my guess is you've got something awry if you can forget something as important as the retaining clip something else isn;t connected or isn't in place correctly.

Thanks? Didn't ask about my competence. As for the php one, it was installed just as I've read everyone says to. After the having to drop the pan again and running outta time, I forgot sorry. It happens to some people. But once the clip was one, more problems. I guess I'll try it again when I have time and put it in the 7 o'clock position.

I believe the PTP one is the gogo solenoid as that was where I got mine from. I never got around to installing it and sold it.

Gary's solenoid that he sell is not like a gogo solenoid. I believe the gogo/ptp one is a modified EPC solenoid where Gary's is actually a modified DD solenoid and orientates just like the OE DD solenoid does in the 6 o'clock position.

I'm curious about the modded version and non-modded version and this whole "clocking" of the solenoid.

PTP no longer does business with that scum sucking thief Doug Gilbert aka Mr. Gogo Diesel. Their Solenoids are modified in house now.

You might just have gotten a bad solenoid. It happens.
