Velvet drive 71C rebuild - Forward Clutch Piston

I have finally started the assembly stage of my 71C rebuild and have a question: Does the rubber Clutch Ring (81) get installed around the perimeter groove of the Forward Clutch Piston (82) or does it simply sit between the Forward Clutch Piston (82) and the Clutch Spring (79) ?

I thought I had a good picture to remind me of the Clutch Ring position, famous last words.

See attachment for referenced part numbers in diagram.

There are several threads on the rebuild.

Look for Wooter's thread. I think he discusses this very thing.

He did a good job on his tutorial.

Just rebuilding mine at the moment the rubber sealing ring goes in the outside groove on the piston.

Thanks for the confirmation. Really appreciate it.

I have been using the very popular Wooter thread. It is awesome and is was gave me the courage to attempt the rebuild myself

Wooter did not pull the Forward Clutch Piston, from what was documented.

The new clutch ring (81) is certainly taller, not thicker, than the old one. This made it a challenge pressing the piston back into the cylinder. I think I may have pinched 81 in the process. I guess I should take it apart again to assess the damage. I assume the clutch ring is just restricting the flow of TF.

Any recommendations on pressing the piston into the cylinder without screwing up the clutch ring(81) again?

Soaking in ATF did the trick. Didn't try petroleum jelly, per manual. I am sure that would have worked too.
