The snap ring holds the gear and washer in place inside the casting, so they don't pull or fall out when the key lock is removed.

There's no specific way the snap ring goes in. The only thing you have worry about is tooth alignment on the gears. Look in the 5th post in this thread:

These pictures show how they should look at each end of travel:
