Rebuilding and swapping a 46re into my 03 Ram

I may as well start my own thread since I will be attempting to rebuild the trans myself, I've never gotten into a transmission before. It looks fairly easy to pull out-replace-put in, I just need to really watch any certain clearances and upgrades to handle the power. Just as a quick background this will be going in my 03 Quad cab with a 392 stroker, and its getting a manual vlavebody with a TCI Outlaw shifter.

I started laying out parts and seeing what I had to work with. First problem I ran into was Keith suggesting to add 6 springs to the direct drum to beef it up to handle the 5.0 apply lever. I found a guy parting out transmissions, he has a whole drum for $10, I'll pick that up and steal some springs from it

Another issue that's going to be fun is guessing where all the little seals and parts go, the majority of them are all unlabeled I think this is the seal that gets upgraded around the direct drum, I just don't understand why it wasn't upgraded in the kit since they sent me a new drum with a regular seal already installed

Do you have the 46rh service manual? It has alot of information. I bought one from ebay to help me understand how it works.

I have the older Rh manual downloaded on my computer, but it’s very hard to follow. I’ve been thinking about grabbing the ATSG 46re manual but haven’t yet

I’m going to go meet a guy soon to pick up those springs, I think he’s got a lot more random parts and transmissions. Would there be any good parts to grab if he happened to have a 48re or something similar? I’m sure I can get stuff cheap if he has anything good

Tail shaft,
I had a 46RE a few weeks back, but I traded it for TKO 600 that's in need of some TLC
It's only a matter of time before 428 in the 2014 take it's toll on the 65RFE

Well I did luck out on this trans, it had a brand new rebuild done on it before I started, so all the bushings look fresh I'm probably going to order the snap ring kit to make sure the overdrive snap ring is new, I don't want that to break after its all done

A simple way to beef up the OD clutch. (I love this transmission)
Description
PATC #8S / #D12970A. Overdrive extreme duty Mega Spring. This is the large spring that holds the overdrive direct clutch engaged when the transmission isn’t in 4th gear. Fits 500, 518, 618, 46RH / RE and 47RH / RE transmissions. Needed for high horse power / torque motors. Just like the original spring but 1/4 inch longer.
