If the 4 speed has a top plate you may be able to remove the plate and pull the shifter straight up. You may want to identify the transmission and look at a service manual first.

I can't figure out how to remove the shifter from my 1991 ford f150, 4.9 liter manual transmission.

Remove the rubber mat or carpet from the floor around the shift tower. This will expose a stamped steel plate that you can remove to get access to the top plate of the transmission. Place the transmission in neutral and remove the bolts securing the top cover to the tranny. After removing the bolts you may need to use a rubber mallot to bump loose the cover. Pick the cover straight up and out. After removal cover the hole with a rag or better yet fabricate a cover from a thin piece of plywood that you can bolt back in place with a couple of bolts to prevent dirt and foreign particle from entering the tranny. When you remove the top cover and see the forks hanging from the underside don't worry. When you place the cover back onto the tranny just line up the shift forks to the slots they drop into on the gears. Piece of cake.

Could be that you have a faulty clutch slave or master cylinder. Check for fluid levels and leaks. If the clutch is not working correctly even the shifter goes into gears, it look like its not engaging all the and just popping out.

I have a 1987 ford ranger 4x4 and im trying to figure out how to remove the shifter linkage from the tranny to drop the tranny

Hi danielh_04,
There are two different manual transmissions for that year but both processes are about the same. You need to remove the screws from the shifter boot and pull it back to gain access to the top of the transmission through the floor board. You should see a cover with bolts. Remove the bolts and pull the cover off. Then you want to carefully pull up on the shifter. The lever,shim and the bushing should come out. After you get it removed,you can cover the hole with a rag and drop the transmission. Good luck,if you need anything else,let me know,Chuck.
