It is super easy to do if you can't find anyone local. Go to the website and download the manual and you can get parts from a number of places. I think I got my parts from southwest speed and I believe Speedway has them as well. I went through mine and it only took about 3 hours and I had never been in one before.

thanks guys, went to the performance bodies site & it kinda looks rough to follow. it does list all the parts needed & where they belong. just guess i was looking for the old tranny for dummies book. lol!!! scared to tear into it not knowing what should come apart first. kinda was looking for a rebuild manual a guide more less.

Man it is pretty easy... I have never tore in to a tranny till my falcon.. I just had to replace the clutches and tail housing... I pre soaked the clutches and it only took me an hour to tear it down and put it together using the manual... Don't let it intimidate you... You can do it!!!! The guys at Winters are great to deal with...(if you need them)

Can't believe the thing broke with only 4 nights?!! I have had good luck with mine. Check out this link http://www.wintersperformance.com/catalogs/FalconRaptor/38clutchassy.htm it is several pages and shows the instructions you are looking for. Like these other guys said they are pretty simple. You will need a 1in piece of round stock to reassemble.

Problem, I have to shift between low and neutral to get it to shift into rev. However in doing this... rev will not work and engages into low gear. It will not shift into high gear either. Any suggestions on adjust hiem at the back of tranny? Is there a certain dim they should be set at? Any help would would be greatly appreciated.

While this thread is a few years old....
A common problem is the shift fork moves around on the shifting shaft creating similar problems. I use a shaft collar from the hardware store to keep the shift fork from doing that because the set screw doesn't seem to hold to well on mine. They can break or delaminate preventing the drum from moving far enough to disengage completely.
These two things seem the most common problems with your description.
