49 Packard series 23

I recently replaced the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and pilot bushing. The overdrive was not working prior to the project and is not currently operative. All of the gears shift smoothly with no issues. However, when you downshift or ease off on the gas, the transmission free spins with no compression. Once you accelerate the gears engage. Any wisdom on how to correct this would be welcome. Chuck

Thank for the reply. Clamping did the trick.. Time of success ended up taking 2 hours on door 1, 1 hour on door 2, and 1/2 hour to finish door 3 and 4. Clamping took the tension off the spring so the pin could be tapped in. chuck

49 Standard Eight 23 series door handle spring

I'm replacing the exterior door handles and bezels on my 49 standard 8 4 door. There's a small spring that retracts the handle into position. It slips over the pin that connects the handle to the bezel. Can't figure out how to get the spring in the correct position to insert the pin. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Chuck
