I know I always try to put things back the way I found them, but your experience highlights the hazard that the person before us may not have been so motivated.
Oh how true this is! I've learned working on old cars in general to never assume when you take it apart that it was put together correctly by the last guy! A really good example is the location of the primary and secondary shoes on self-energizing versus non-self energizing brakes. Manual transmissions also.......seen a lot of weird stuff in those.
And I found out the hard way that in addition to the Shop Manuals and Parts Manuals, the Service Bulletins/Service Letters (and other various names) should also be checked for further info that may be pertinent to a particular task.
