Need some help pulling motor and tranny???

I know this isn't the right place for this but it has more to do with the tranny then the motor. Ok with that said i have gotten my motor and tranny hooked up to pull it out and swap. I am trying to remove an old flathead with a four speed tranny from a 1949 ford f-1 pickup. I tryed to remove it but it seems like its stuck and im not sure how to get it out with out removing the hole cab. It seems that removing the old tranny mount would help a bit but im not to sure and any tips on getting the drive shaft out of the yolk would be great.

The driveshaft should unbolt at the rear end yoke and pull out of the tranny.....

Can I make a suggestion? Take the front end (fenders and rad support) off of the truck....it will give you a lot more room to work when you go to making the mounts etc for that 302.

You need to remove the shift lever. This is quite easy. At the bottom of the lever is a ball shaped cover that unscrews and the handle will come out. If it still has a rubber boot it is under there. It may be covered in dirt and grease. I cant remember if the floor around trans comes out on these, but if it does, remove it and then take the top of trans off. Six bolts I think. If you can get to this do this instead of removing the shift lever as the whole unit will come out together. You can pull this out (maybe) with out unhooking the drive shaft, it slides out rear of trans, but it might bind up and cause problems. Best to remove it first. Should be 4 bolts or 2 ubolts at rear end. Remove these and pry drive shaft forward until it falls away from rear end. Then pry it out of trans. When you do this the grease will run out if it has any. Somewhere on bottom of trans or side there is a plug that can be removed to drain trany. You may have to jam a screwdriver in hole to get it to run out. You may have to lower your engine back down to get the driveshaft out because it may be bound up. You may have to remove the water pumps to clear the front mounts. There is one bolt inside the water outlet of the pump that you have to remove to get them off. This bolt can be a ***** because it is usually rusty. Use a good six point socket and pound it on. Hope this helps. I got a little long winded but I am thinking you are a beginner so I tried to make it simple. Good luck.

It's been a long time since I 'fooled around' with an old Ford pick up - but my recollection was that there were a couple of mounts, either on the bell housing or the side of the transmission. But then time has taken its' toll on my memory

Glad you got your engine and trany out ok. First thing is to remove clutch pedal pad. These unscrew from the arm,some have a nut on back that has to be removed first. Next get under it and find the spring that makes it pop back up and remove it. Your pedal should fall to the floor. If sometime down the road you want to reuse it you can just leave it here and carpet over it. You should wire or clamp it in place so it doesn't raddle. ( old school stuff). Or you could cut arm off underneath with either a torch or saw. Leave the pivot on the shaft underneath. (more old school) Or you can unbolt entire unit from frame and dissemble it to remove clutch pedal. Or you could unbolt entire assembly and replace with an aftermarket unit with a more modern Master cylinder.
