we didn't see a retainer. When he was trying to pry it out it came apart, one peice is still in the transmission or trany what ever that thing is called

Get a threaded rod vise grips that thread on it. A couple of nuts and washers. I thread on vise grips to clench down on end cap. Thread on nut 12 in. down add washers. I use a (5 lb metal weight) put it on rod add the washers working up to size bigger that hole, add nut and you have a slide puller.
