Default need help with 4T60E heater element installation

Hi guys,

I got a "new" used trans for the '95 SLE and am in the midst of installing it. When I took the pan down and was wiping the gasket sealing surface, I bumped the heater element spring (?) and it fell off. It did not get bent, so I cleaned it up and re-installed it. I did not see how it was before I knocked it off. :( I think this is how it showed it in my FSM, but I am not sure. Is it supposed to be bowed this way?

If it ain't right, it will be a lot easier to change now, than after I get the 16 quarts of fluid in it!

Thanks,

Thanks again mkaake, for the lightning response - that image eases my mind considerably. You should get a consulting fee on this job, (or a least a case of beer) if I ever get it running again.

[edit] Now I can go back to bed!
