1971 DT1 250F clutch ball bearing was created by Dad637

Good day all, so I have been reading some threads and looking at exploded diagrams and I am still not sure where the ball is to be placed in the clutch drive assembly or at the other end of the rod?  Any help here would be greatly appreciated.  
Thanks

Thanks MarkT, when installing the bearing into the case, should the push rod simply push the ball bearing into the hole through the seal? thanks again, hoping to get it back on the road soon.

I also am going to try and replace my cracked nylon gear with the KDI reproduction. I read somewhere that you have one shot to push it on and get it in the right orientation. If so, how can you tell in which position to press it on? if that makes any sense at all.

NM, I found a video online that talks about how it lines up. Still curious if there is an appropriate way to install the ball between the push rods, thanks.

Normally the long pushrod stays in the case when working on the clutch   So the ball is inserted from the clutch side (if it is removed at all).  On some models you can only install the ball from the clutch side.

If you removed it from the actuator side then you can put it back from that side.

Without looking, but been there many times--The DT1 ball is a big 5/16 one & only goes in from the clutch side ahead of the mushroom. Hope i'm not treading on toes.
Just to add, there is one 1/4 ball in the actuator where the cable connects but that is sort of retained by three pop markls or something to stop it dropping out.
