Manual Transmission Install Question

96 V6 5spd with synchros going bad, thinking about taking a chance with a used tranny.
Reading my Chilton I remove the tranny first then the bell housing and clutch assy, re-install in reverse order.
Does this mean I can just swap out the tranny to make sure it works then replace the clutch later???

Re: Manual Transmission Install Question

being that your mustang has a T-5 manual trans you can take the trans out without the bell housing, which is a nice thing to do. Other Mustangs cant do that lol.

Technically you can slide it out and put another one in without removing the clutch.

since its a 99 up its a digital speedo gear so a pre 99 wont work without swaping tail shafts with your newer one. Just FYI and some T-5s have different gearing~ so get one from the same type of car, any 99-04 v6 should work.
