Well...........the soaking of the 13/16" / 2461-42 and the 9/16" / 2461-42 clutch pushrod oil seals, in the automotive automatic transmission sealer, has worked, and has softened them up, putting back some of the flexibility back into them. Now we can go ahead and install the 2461-41D clutch pushrod oil seal parts, along with the 2461-41B pushrod guide spring ring. Install in the following order.....9/16” / 2461-42 pushrod oil seal, 2461-42B pushrod guide [ pointed end facing out ], 2459-42 pushrod oil seal spring, 0208 pushrod plain washer, 13/16” / 2461-42 pushrod oil seal, 2462-42 oil seal retainer, and last, the 2461-41B pushrod guide spring ring. Before installing these parts, lightly grease them all, especially the rubber seals. Lightly grease the inside diameter of the clutch gear also. Installation of the 2461-41B pushrod guide spring ring is a bit tricky and takes both hands to accomplish the task. Since all of the parts are under tension from the 2459-42 oil seal spring, seating the 2461-41B pushrod guide spring ring, while simultaneously keeping the 2461-41D clutch pushrod oil seal parts compressed inside of the clutch gear bore, installation of the 2461-41B pushrod guide spring ring, may take you several attempts, before you get it seated and locked into the groove, in the outer edge of the clutch gears bore. I have not yet found a quick way of installing these components. I use needle nosed pliers to grip the turned in ears on the 2461-41B pushrod guide spring ring, and to compress it. At the same time, I use one of my fingers, positioned on the inside of the compressed pushrod guide spring ring, to put force on, collapse, and hold, the pushrod oil seal parts, beyond the pushrod guide spring ring groove, in the clutch gears bore. I don’t believe I have ever gotten the pushrod guide spring ring in, in one attempt, ever, in the past. I didn’t this time either. LOL Always make sure the pushrod guide spring is completely seated in its clutch gear groove !! The first photograph below, show the parts components I just talked about. The second photograph below, show these parts components, installed into the clutch gears bore.
