btw you're supposed to grind a flat spot in the pin not out of the gear itself. (or clock the gear in relation to the carrier so the pin fits between two of the teeth.) that way you put the pin in put the ring gear on, slide the pin out(because the flat spot lets it clear the teeth) and put the c clips in.
