i still cant get those last 2 things out i've tried and tried and im afraid to scratch up the sides and/or put groves in it and what not...i may just force it out lol and get new pieces tho cuz if i keep it up imma have those two things tore the hell up its driving me nuts oh well i do have 2 weeks until i can get the shift kit... =( funds ran out it sucks lol
 






You have to use tube brushes to clean, and smooth the bores out. Another option is a tool called Bench Buddy.
 






well i got everything out now just waiting for the shift kit...but now another ? and sorry its a bad picture but how do u get the "shift lever" out from the side of the tranny i seen the nut internally and loosened it but i cant pull it off is there something im missing?

i wasnt sure exactly how to explain it or what to call it dont pics work wonders lol
 






The pin inside of the channel needs to be pulled out. Use 2 flat screwdrivers to pry it out. The walls of the channel will act as a fulcrum.
 






Yeah, that pins is a pain in the ass. i used needle nose vise-grips and wobbled back and forth until it broke free. be carefull it will break easy.btw...installed used trans and it works great!!!

ok well i'll giv that a shot what if the pin breaks how complicated will it be to get whats left out of there? and glad ur used tranny works...im still waiting on more funds for mine lol
 






That pin is very difficult to extract if it cracks off in there. I once broke a transmission case trying to get that pin out! :eek: One member on this site once mentioned that he used a body work electric stud gun to weld a stud onto the broken pin, then pull it out with a slap hammer. They sell a repair kit for the case, but it's better not to butcher it up in the first place. Try using 2 flat screwdrivers first.

Since I don't like to take chances with those pins (from a past experience), I usually take them out, and use a nail in its place. The nail gets bent into the channel (looks like an "L"), and is easy to extract in the future.

brooklyn...how did u become such a tranny genius! i woulda never thought about it but since i was lucky to not break that pin...i will deff use your trick!
 






Ford should have made an "L" shaped pin to use in there in the first place. It would save people a lot of trouble, frustration, and not to mention (broken transmission cases).
