    Mine had odd corrosion all over the mating surfaces, I just took a light buffing to it before reassembly. As for the screens, well, those are in for a reason. They ain't there for looks that's for sure.

    Do you? Are the springs behind it the fat ones or the tiny ones? If they're the tiny, then I'd be unconcerned as most of the valve slots have a hole over them anyway

    Smaller weak springs except the one Pulse dampener.

    Found a donor VB 50.00



    Split the halves. So welding two holes shut makes a stock trans bullet proof

    Same amount of balls, 4 plastic and 8 steel. I'll compare more after cleaning.

    At least this one is in better shape. May get holes tig welded and use it.



    Deep erosion in black areas on dings.




    I'll clean them up at work and attempt to not break screws.

    Kind of a joke. Dings Valve body. They claimed NAG1 would take all this horse power and survive. That's the only thing I've found to be different from a stock valve body so far.

    I'll compare the valves and springs tomorrow when I reassemble mine.

    They sure didn't use any transgo stuff in it, I installed that in lower already.

    The upper is next when I get the donor cleaned up. It only requires a different spring in one valve.

    Is this the transgo kit that has the longer spools?

    Back together for the most part. Had to heat two screws with heat gun and ease them out, the rest were OK..

    Waiting on friend to weld up the other plate, if successful I'll use it. It's in better shape

    Other wise I'll finish bolting this one up with old plate.



    Final analysis. Stock through and through from what I could see and compare, except the two welded holes.

    Not a special mystery piece. You think they would have at least used the TransGo kit in combination.

    Guessing it would take too long because of the screws potential of breaking.

    Added: Chased all the threads and used anti-seize on the screws. Might make the next time easier.

    I was going off memory so spool was not the correct wording. I assume you may have read the details of the kit. Its not a total shift kit but an improvement or service kit of sorts.
    They have parts that take advantage of unused surfaces.

    Anyway, I don't know much about it and watching on in earnest. TransGo | Mercedes 722.6 SHIFT KIT(R) Valve Body Repair Kit

    The whole idea behind the Dings valve body was to raise clamping pressure not only during the shift but constant after the shift on the clutch packs. I would love to find out what those two holes are for. Thanks for going thru the valve body with your findings. What Trans Go pieces did you install.

    Agreed, not a full blown shift kit.

    Changing springs must have some affect on shifting, figured it couldn't hurt.

    I used the sonnax 68942-05K overlap control sleeve kit with it also.

    Trying to eliminate any variables since I don't know the history of valve body.

    To think I sent my 13000 mile core in for this, should have kept it and sent a 50.00 core in.

    The donor valve body seemed in much better shape, valves looked better, some springs appeared a little longer comparing.

    Not sure what the welded holes cover.

    Map out the holes on plate in pic to a pic of valve body might get you there.

    Thing gives me a headache looking at all valleys

    Looks like the one is over the pressure regulator valve. Make sense that it doesn't bleed off pressure or something to that affect.

    The other looks like it has something to do with the shift pressure control valve.

    Holes welded up on other plate. Need to smooth them out.
