I have a 96 F150 and I need to replace my clutch. My tranny code is M which should be the M5OD-R2 (correct?) I'm not sure if my clutch plate is a 10in or an 11 in.

You will take old parts in so no need to know ahead of time what size.
Basically clutch sandwiched between engine and transmission.
Transmission usually easiest to remove.
Drive shaft first.
If starter on tranny, then remove batter cable.
Sometimes ground strap.
Speedo cable, backup lights cable, etc.
Small bolts on bottom plate.
Support transmission and engine separately.
Some trucks have removable tunnel cover, which makes it much easier.
6 large bolts between engine and bellhouseing.
Lower transmission and back of engine only enough so you can slde transmission back.
Then slide it back out of engine and clutch.
Usually about 6 inches or less.
Then get it out of the way.
About 10 bolts on pressure plate.
Do diagonally and in steps.
Friction disk sandwiched between pressure plate and flywheel, will just fall out.
Throw out bearing is on fork back in bellhousing of tranny.

Check pilot busing in center of flywheel.
Supports tranny shaft, so must be good, well greased, no rust, no binding.

Install is reverse of procedure, except you need to hold the friction disk in center, while tightening pressure plate. They sell a cheap plastice stub shaft substitute that you can buy or improvise. But important, because you will be trying to get that heavy transmission with long imput shaft back through the fiction disk hub and into pilot busing. Alignment is critical. Sometimes turing engine helps.
Extra long bolts temporarity, also helps. A little rocking and shoving. Constantly compare gap on bottom and top of bellhousing to engine.
When it slides in, youwll know, and an bolt it back up. But don't try to just force it.
Also don't over tighern pressure plate bolts, because they are small. Use torque wrench.

I don't know the size of the original Transmition,that came in my Cutlass supreme 1987.,i jst put a 350 rocket in the car and need a tranny,the bolt patterns,weather or not the tranny has...

If I remember correctly that engine used a 350 trans. You will need to check bolt patterns on bellhousing to make sure there are no differences in bolt pattern but I believe they are the same. With a little work you could also stuff a 400 or a 700r4 (with overdrive) unit in there but you would need some mods to do that. Don't forget that tailshaft lengths vary depending upon where the unit came from so you may need to either change tailshaft or have a driveshaft made to fit.

Replace the starter on a 95sn mustang convertable

There are two bolts holding the factory starter/reducer onto the 5.0 block. The bottom bolt should be easily accessible from underneath while up on ramps/stands but the top bolt must be reached by feeding several long extensions through the front of the motor (by the pulleys) onto the top bolt. If you look down the passenger side by the header you will see the top bolt. You will have to take the intake piping off as well.
