Removing And Installing Transfer And Separation Plates

1. Identification of transfer plate:

Part No. 010.325.283 J cast in part (arrow).

2. Identification of separation plate:

Transmission type RH Arrow l = 3 notches Arrow 2 = 2 notches

3. Identification of separation plate:

Transmission types RCA, RCB and RCF

Arrow 1 = 2 notches Arrow 2 = 3 notches Arrow 3 = 1 notch

4. Identification of separation plate:

Transmission types RCD and RCE Arrow 1 = 2 notches Arrow 2 = 4 notches Arrow 3 = 1 notch

5. Arrangement of valve balls in valve body:

7. Identification of valve body as from December 83:

FMP = Transmission RCD and RCE FBP = Transmission RCF

6. Identification of valve body up to December 83:

BB = Transmission RH

FB = Transmissions RCA and RCB

Identification is by means of a coding vane (arrow), screwed on to the transfer plate.


The coding vane must remain pointing to valve body during repair.

Parts must be removed from a valve body to clean a very dirty valve body. These parts should be placed in a special tray to guarantee re-installation in original position. Outside shape of tray matches that of valve body to facilitate insertion of valves and springs.

Normally, valve body is only disassembled when transmission damage is from burnt friction linings or ATF is excessively dirty. As long as ATF is relatively clean, in most cases it will be sufficient to flush assembled valve body in clean cleaning fluid. Then dry with compressed air.

1. Remove end plates on one side, remove valves and springs one after the other and place them in tray.

2. Unscrew end plates on other side and remove springs and valves one after the other, also placing them in tray.

3. Place cover on tray.

4. Agitate tray with parts in cleaning fluid and then dry with compressed air. Never use water.

1. Assembling must be done at a clean working place. Never use fluffy rags when cleaning and assembling.

2. Valves and springs must be installed in their original bores of valve body.

3. First install springs and valves in one side, install end plates, then install valves and springs of other side and bolt end plates.

Slight scoring on valves will not cause operating problems. They can be used again.

Coat all valves with ATF and check for free movement. Valves must slide down bores by their own weight.
