looking to rebuild my t45 myself

i have a 96 gt with minor bolt ons..maybe about 300 hp...my t45 has something wrong..it will shift every gear smoothly,but you have to hit it out of gear in order to get it in neutral...i would like to rebuild it,but i cant seem to find any literatureon it or any help with the rebuild..also i see alls kinds of different kits and not sure which one i need...i am on a somewhat limited budget so i can't just go out and buy another tranny...i also have heard that these are fairly easy to rebuild...any help would be very much appreciated as i would love to get behind the wheel of my stang again.thanks in advance

Re: looking to rebuild my t45 myself

The main thing is to start taking it apart when you have a few days to work on it and don't take it apart then work on it a few days later you will f@%! stuff up that way, trust me. It took me two days to rebuild my first 5 speed in my ranger, witch is very similar to the t45 and I didn't have any help or instructions. The tranny is still in my truck with around 30,xxx mile on it since I rebuilt it. Oh to let you know the truck has 230,xxx miles all together.



Oh watch out for the ball bearings for the shift linkage they have a tendency to fall out.

I've found that bagging and labeling parts in plastic sandwich bags really help keep the chaos to a minimum, and also take lots of pictures, it helps when your sitting there staring at a part going 'What the F!@K is this??!?!' or how does this fit type stuff...
