What did I do wrong? Velvet drive 71c rebuild

What did I do wrong? After my rebuild everything was great extremely quiet and even gained more top-end speed for a good 20 minutes. Then started slipping in forward and lost reverse (while docking) slammed into the slip and took a chunk out of the bow.

Now my money saving rebuild is no longer money saving.

Fluid was burnt and no pressure after i put more fluid in (hissed when I did this). Also had neutral creep which i could stop by hand. When i drained and refiilled the fluid and driveway tests I watched the neutral creep stop, I seem to have better pressure but still no reverse.

Any ideas about what I did wrong. Snap ring upside down, problem with control valve?

I am pulling it again to assess the damage but what did I do wrong and how do I prevent it??

Do you think if it wasn't pressed in enough to allow to snap ring to seat? or I shouldn't have reused it?

No you have to use a snap ring for sure. The issue is there are like 5 different thickness for them and which one you should use is based on the compress high of the clutch pack. Most times you get lucky and can get away with the one that was in the trans. I'm just wondering if it popped out and that's when it started slipping.

Did you use the rebuild thread located here?
