I get the top three by reaching from above, sometimes removing the hood, and for the cross member , I have cut them out if the truck had been in salt country. There is nothing easy about pulling a engine or tranny out of these fords. Just patience. And you will have to use a wrench for the top 3 bolts, no sockets or cheats will fit.

How do I remove stuck transmission?

make sure that all the mounting bolts around the bell housing are removed.
you did not mention make and model so some vehicles have bolts from the engine side as well as from the transmission side
next if you can get the transmission to move away from the block at all then the problem will be that the input shaft is rusted into the clutch plate or the input shaft is rusted into the spigot bearing in the end of the crankshaft
it may be necessary to use something like tyre levers on either side of the bell housing to force the box away from the block

How to remove top transmission bolts on a 2002 ford explorer

You will need two "special" tools. First a long (36" or so) extension, preferably 1/2" drive, and a swivel impact socket. All of the bolts around the bell housing are the same head size. I believe a 13mm. The way it is done is that you remove the transmission mount and let the trans hang down to give you more room, then use the long extension and swivel socket to reach the top 2 bolts.

I have a 2007 f150 4x4 with 5.4 litre Front trans seal is leaking do I have to lift the body to remove top trans bolts?

Nope, but you do have to remove both front and rear drive shafts, exhaust Y pipe, transfer case, all wiring that goes to the trans and transfer case, trans fluid lines, starter, torque converter bolts, trans cross member, then the trans and engine should tilt down far enough for you to get to the upper bolts of the bell housing.

Transmission diagram for a 91 fordf150 4x4

No the bolt spacing is different you will have to find a bell housing for a 302 or 351c. The spacing on a 351 modified is also different. Hope I helped.

Will a f350 with a 460 ci transmission fit in a 95 f150 with a 351ci

I guess the short answer is I doubt it.
The 460 engine should be a big block and the 351 is probably a large 302. I would expect the bolt pattern for the bell housing to be different along with the mounting and the tail shaft.
The 460 should have a bigger drive shaft than the 351.
If you can get the model of the 460 trans a salvage yard should be able to tell you if they will interchange.

Cannot remove transmission

Did you remove the torque converter bolt's from the fly wheel, should be 4. You will have to turn the motor by hand to remove all the bolt's.

take the trans mount and cross memeber out and let the engine tilt down with a floor Jack, then u can get at the top bolts, u will need a 3 foot extension and a wobbly socket. As far as the cost of the trans work goes could you break it down by parts and labor, also what is the hourly labor rate, here it is $115 per hour. One last not be careful of the connectors to the trans, break them and u will need a new wiring harness, about $450.
