A manual trans? Pull transmission out and it will unbolt from crankshaft flange. 5 or 6 bolts depending on what engine. Automatic? No flywheel, it has a flex-plate that torque convertor is bolted to.. Manual, first remove shifter from top, inside cab. Remove driveshaft, get a transmission jack..... now I need 1000 words and a half hour of typing. Wassup? Why?

Uhhh ohhh, you missed the clutch, starter and throw-out bearing. Seriously is the F100 an automatic or manual transmission?
