That one should be an easy one if you are a first timer at it.
You will want to ID what type of trans you have, probably a type 9.
Then you want to make a list of all the trouble it is having so as to help you when getting parts.
Does it make noise? when doesit make noise?does it go into gear hard? which gears does in go into hard. Does it grind when shifting? etc etc etc.
Also you need to look the clutch over well, and if replacing plan on resurfacing the flywheel, highly recommended for smooth action. NAPA can do that for you.
Be sure when tightening down the clutch cover assembly ( sometimes called pressure plate) that you tighten each bolt a turn at a time going around the cover assembly, one at a time untill you get them tightend lightly, then finish by torquing to spec.Also replacing the pilot bearing.very necessary.
I know it sounds like a lot, but it is not.
Get started and keep your post going and guys will jump in to help...no dout.
TNSmith, crosley and a few others are REAL good at transmission stuff, so you are where you need to be.

ok i pulled the transfer case of the end of the adapter and found the needle barrings.
how many are there ? and how do you put the adapter shaft back in to the transfer case? is there a easy way?
and another question is the forward leaver on the 3 spd trany is that low-2-3?
and is it supposed to be so hard to shift?
thank you the help
