I do not have the overdrive out of the car and am working from jack stands. For now I'm adding the larger piston and a new pump ball and spring. I will seat the pump ball as you have suggested. If this doesn't work I'll pull the drive over the winter for a complete rebuild. You would think that after working properly for only 70 years they would have had better build quality when they were originally produced.
Any thoughts on the springs?

The wide rings are expander rings and go first. Then the narrow rings go on. Do you have the pump out. If so take a close looks at the ball seat. They usually wear on one side, and will need to have a new seat cut so the check ball seats good on the pump body.
This is a common problem causing low Previn the overdrive
