If you're just rebuilding it, then lay out a large piece of white paper (butcher-paper or freezer-paper works well), outline the VB on it with a Sharpie, then take one valve apart at a time and lay it out on the paper and draw a box around it with a list of parts and their sequence.
Then clean the valves one-by-one, and then finally clean out the valve-body itself, and begin reassembling the valves into the VB one at a time with fresh ATF.
It takes a little longer than just dumping all parts into one basket in a parts-washer, but it does avoid mixups.
