Default 48RE Valvebody Question

Is the valvebody "closed" when removed while trans is still in the truck? What I mean is, if I drop the VB down, will balls and other things be there that could easily lose their place? I need to drop the VB to look into the parking pawl linkage, but don't want screw up other things.

I remember long ago putting a shift kit in my turbo400. When the VB was lowered, the gasket and plate were loose and balls that had to be held in place by grease to keep them where they should be. I aint as young as back then!

The valvebody is a module unit so yes you can drop it with out any issues. What will drop out in your lap will be the governor piston and spring. Which is no big deal either. Be careful with the electrical connection that pokes through the case they break easy.
