42rle ball

Anyone know where this ball goes? Fell out as I was removing the valve body.

Check ball for the valve body. Did you open up the valve body because it shouldn't fall out if you dropped the whole thing.

Yea I did later but that fell out when I was just dropping it. I have all the check balls inside the valve body and they are a lot smaller. I read that the libertys have a spring and ball inside the transmission lines I don't know if the TJs have the same thing. I have the service manual for the 42rle and I can't figure out where this goes

Hard to tell with the pics, but is it metal? I've never seen this happen before, but it looks like one of these balls on the oil pump.

Yea it's metal. I went to the jeep dealership and they said they've never seen one of those in the transmission especially with it being rusty so I put it back together without it and it seems to be doing fine without it
