Check ball count

About to put my transmission back together but am slightly worried about a 1/4" check ball. I think I am safe and it's just a model year difference but just need someone to put my mind to rest before I tighten all the bolts down.

Pic from the internet showing ball location shows two 1/4" balls.


My trans pic from dis assembly showed the orifice without a ball. However, the internet pic above also looks like there is a hole under the ball which leads me to think I am fine and didn't loose any parts.

After many hours of googling I found this manual. Looks like the ball is BS2. Now I am just plain mad. Took pictures of each part as I removed it so I don't know how it could be missing or how I could have lost it. Will be a miracle if I can find one local.

"BS2: Shuttles between SS2 oil and manual 2 oil to stroke the 1-2 shift valve and L/R modulator valve. If you leave it out, the transmission will shift from 1st to 4th. That is, when the computer commands 2nd it stays in 1st. When it commands 3rd, it goes to 4th (just like BS6 on 1996-98 model E4ODs). The problem is, if the SS2 is stuck off itíll cause the same thing, so be careful. One more thing, depending on the condition of SS2, and well it flows, you may get a 1-3-4 shift."
