All right you JD experts. 2955 high/low unit. TM 4449 shows a "valve ball" near a priority valve, and the illustraion is not clear as to where it goes-behind the priority? in the cavity of the housing that the priority plugs into? Better yet, upon disassembly, there was no "ball" in any of the passages that I saw. Searching around, I did find a leather disc approx. 1/4 inch diameter and 1/16 thick laying in the bottom of the clutch housing. Could this be the "valve ball"? And still, where does that sucker go? Teardown was because hi/lo would intermittently kick in and out (disengage). Also would occasionally whine when shift was made to high. Shift quality seemed to be quite slow and noisy. Found nothing obviously bad, but did put in a new pump due to some marginal scoring in housing, resealed everything I could lay my hands on, final issue seems to be this "valve ball". If any of you guys can shed some light on this, I would really appreciate it. Dealers around here seem to scratch their heads when mentioning this part. In advance, Thank You.
