Question about 1981 Ford F 100
I need to replace the backup light switch on my 1981 F100 Custom. This is a 6cylinder 4 speed. I need to know the procedure for removing the old switch and putting in the new switch. Is it as simple as unscrewing the old one and screwing in the new on?
Yes it is. Unscrew it and screw the new one in and reconnect the plug.

The hydraulic cylinder is in the bell housing. When you separate the motor and tranny, you will see it as a unit with the throw-out bearing. Take the hydraulic line off before you start. You will have to bleed it when you are done.

I do believe that is the Mitsubishi, I agree that the Library would be your best bet. the haynes manual I am looking at doesn't go into detail however. You may need to get a Bentley manual.
The clutch, now there's a good question. the real question is.... Do you want to pull it again after all this work... Ya didn't think so.. the parts rill run around 220 for pressure plate, and disc. Replace the slave cylinder also as they love to fail..
I can add this hint. If you are on the ground doing this, to replace the tranny use two tie down straps across the frame and under the tranny lift with a jack but support with the straps. this makes lining it up a breeze and if a 4WD you can even attach the transfer case and rear mount.. made it super easy for me... I did it by myself in under an hour..but I was stupid first I replace the slave cylinder then a year later the pressure plate. I then replaced the slave cylinder a second time... Hey 40 bucks was cheap...
