47re accumulator questions

I installed sonnax sure cure kit this weekend to the valve body only (so i didn't install the whole kit) and when all done the truck seems to start in 3rd and if i shift manually down to 2nd its ok but no low range. O/D isnt working either. I had a broken 3-4 accumulator spring but nothing else seemed to be bad. I removed the v/b again to double check all of what i did but i noticed that there is only one spring on the accumulator that likes to fall out while removing vb. all manuals show an upper and lower spring but i cant find any springs anywhere on the shop floor, buckets, ect..I guess the main question is are ther suppose to be an upper and lower spring for the accumulator on a 1999 ram 2500 4x4 cummins motor. If anyone can help i will owe you greatly. thanks ~joe

The 3-4 accumulator only has a single spring. The piston goes in the housing, then the spring then cover plate.

i am sorry i am not talking about the 3-4 accumulator but rather the accumulator mounted in the case before you put the valve body back in. its located above the govenor solenoid. it was acting like i had no govenor pressure but solenoid ohms ok and when i apply power and ground to it it makes an audible click so i am pretty sure it works. i have a new accumulator coming with the 4 seals instead of the two that really didn't seem to be sealing anything with how easy it was to stick in.
