Default Re: 200-4R Rebuild ... step by step!

Note the machined direct drum surface, this is mandatory with a new wide band.

Install a new band, preferably an Alto Red Eagle Wide band.

Then set the forward and direct drum onto the input ring gear, aligning the cutouts on the direct drum with the lugs of the sun shell at the same time. Spin until it all seats but don't let the direct drum become unseated on the forward drum.
You can carefully use a pr of vise-grips here to hold it and spin it. Don't damage the splines on the forward drum...

You can get the band in after installing the drum assemblies, but I've found it is usually easier to ease the drums by the already installed band BUT do so carefully, don't be too rough on the band.
