Default 4T60E Shifter Assembly holding pin/nail

So as I was disassembling the tranny, the pin started coming coming off but the head and part of the body just kind of snapped and broke. Any idea how to take it out at this point? Should I just drill into it?

That pin is what holds the shift linkage rod in. It only goes in one way and comes out the same way. Yea, your going to have to drill it out. But, why are you removing it?

Mike: I was following a dissassebly guide and they took it out. Thinking about it now I guess its really not that necessary, but since its halfway out I better get a new one to put all the way back in. I will probably end up drilling it this afternoon.

Also, while I was repainting the shell this afternoon, I heard something fall out and looked around and found this:


Any idea where this goes?

Wow, its been awhile since I have had one of these trans taken apart. If it came out of the case, I wonder if came from the vacuum modulator port???

It fits!! But which side goes to the black vaccum line and which side goes into the squiggly stuff on the inside?

I think this might be it, I cannot find any other part that looks like it besides item #34

It definitely fits in the port.

It looks in figure 35 they're using a stick or something to push it in. Im guessing from this figure that the side on my ring finger goes in first and index finger connects to modulator assembly (Part 32)?

And I am using the High performance rebuild video thats being sold on eBay. No patience for ATSG paper manuals ;-D (Despite having ch 6 in the FSM memorized at this point lol)

I don't think it actually connects to the modulator, but you appear to be correct in the idea that they are using some sort of threaded rod to put it back in. I always thought, tip it on its side, bang with hammer till it falls out works pretty good too.

What'* wrong with paper manuals? Easier to read than draggin a tv to the garage. LOL.
