Install shiftkit in 4r100

I have installed a shift kit in my other cars but the 4r100 seems to be diffrent. the instructions say that there are check balls that will need to be placed ontop of the valve body if the trans is still on the truck. any one have any tips or advice on keeping the balls in place? would grease be ok and dissolve once the fluid gets warm?any advice would be appreciated thanks

We put a tugger kit in mine, and I know the checkballs youre asking about. My question is, does your shift kit also reprogram the front pump? Trans has to come out for that part. As far as holding the checkballs in place, I dont know since mine was upside down for us to work on. Dont know about the grease dissolving. Good question.

i remember i was going to put one in my 90 aod mustang and i dropped all the check balls, i just replaced the tranny after that, i dont want that to happen again. I remember someone told me about some lube you put to hold them in place but i cant remember. Its a transgo kit but im not going to use the pump valve

You can use some grease or even vasoline to hold the check balls in. A little bit isnt going to hurt anything.
