solenoid pack replacment

OK after talking to a few trans techs come to the conclusion that the solenoids pack needs to be replaced I have a new pack but I read on another forum a while back that there is a spring and check ball held in place by the pack but can't find that thread now. So in my search I haven't come across anyone saying anything about this so I'm just looking for a lil help need someone to tell me once and for all if there is a check ball or not, and if so where does it go so I can get it in the right location when reassembling trying to do this later today as I have a trip to go on Saturday and don't want neck snapping shifts thanks in advance for any and all help

There is one steel check ball actuated by a spring and eight rubber check balls. The steel one is in the lower left corner of the brain assembly.

Yes but is that when you drop solenoid pack or the whole valve body cause looking at the pic you posted all the rubber balls for sure are under the valve body the solenoid pack is no where near that big

The Solenoid pack is directly below the Steel Check ball. Removing the pack exposes the check ball as stated in the other thread.

OK so I need to watch for the check ball and spring to fall out when I pull the pack. What is the best way to keep the spring and check ball in while installing the new pack and do you have a better pic of where it goes

Honestly I have not done a solenoid pack only on a E4OD. I've always pulled trannies to have gravity on my side. Terry, JJ, and Elmo would know this better than I.

In some turbo trannies the checkball was held in with a simple washer that lightly pressed in (kinda like the late model LPO check ball). Ford manual says almost nothing about the steel ball except to not lose it.
