Is dropping the valve body required and/or recommended to replace rooster comb on a powerglide? I believe mine is cracked draining and pulling pan tonight parts arriving Wednesday. Watched a video that valve body was in place but have heard mixed messages on dropping valve body that it makes it easier with it out.

No need to remove the valve body

Make sure you have atleast 6-8" to be able to pull the shift arm out, otherwise you will be dropping the transmission.

Thanks. Good point on length I'll check that straight away. I think removing header will give me room to move.

Getting shaft out is going to be an issue. Couple options however if I do remove the valve body is there room to just replace the comb over the shaft or does the shaft have to come out? I appreciate the advice gentlemen. Thank you.

If the rooster fits the flats on the shaft thats in your trans there is no need to completly remove the shaft but you will still need to slide it out a couple of inches.If it does not then you will have to replace the shaft. Still no reason to remove the VB

But if you need to replace the seal naturally it will have to come out..

As a tip, if you have a need to replace the shift shaft seal. If room allows install 2 seals instead of one.

I've had issues in the past where the shift shaft would leak even after replacing the seal. Since using 2 seals I've had no issue,
Food for thought.
