T-18 tranny removal

cant figure out how to get the shifter off the T-18. Took the floor cover off and there seems to be a metal cover over the shifter yoke that is seized on over it. Any suggestions?? I'm replacing my clutch and this is my first go at dropping transfer cases, drive shafts, tranny's etc. Step by step. Right now I want the shifters out. Thanks for the input

what you need to do is drop the trans and let the shifter come down the hole with it, when it is on the ground you can rotate it to get the trans out from unerneath, it helped me to drain the fluid out first.

There is a metal domed cap that slips down the shift lever and threads onto the shift tower. The domed cap may have a flange area around the bottom. Twist it off like a nut. Once you have that off the shifter will pull straight up-n-out. Be careful, there is one loose pin on either side of the shifter pivot ball. With the shift lever in place and the threaded on cap in place they cannot go anywhere, but once you remove the domed threaded cap they can fall out. They usually just sit there but it's good to watch out for them. Dont let them fall inside! Best to put in neutral to re-install also. see this link for pic: http://www.fordification.com/tech/im...fter_T1819.jpg

^ This.

I just did the same thing to my T-150, which is held on like your T-18. I used a pair of large gland pliers, which did the trick.

Unsrew the cap and before you pull the shifter up fish the pin out from the side.
