The snap rings are thick and pretty big.

My snap ring pliers are made by snap-on tools. I didn't have a problem with them, but I would recommend maybe trying to find a decent pair so when you go back together you can safely install the new rings without damaging them.

Also there is a real thick one that needs to removed around the drive clutches. I destroyed it getting it off. My snap ring pliers would not separate the ring. Lots of prying and twisting got it loose.

That was a piece that I had to order before reinstalling the internals.

Take some pics of your project.

How are the reverse clutches and plates? Are they worn bad or warped by chance?
