http://www.fordforums.com/showthread.ph ... ge=1&pp=10 is another that's been quoted from time to time (it's based on the ford tech item).
I'd like to see a doco hosted here, including extras like changing the rear main seal, tips on the bellhousing bolts, starter motor remove/install etc, but I suppose it's personal preference.

We know this - some people though have said it's very difficult to get to the top bolt - there are a few methods to make this easier.
Just saying "2 bolts hold it in" in a doco doesn't really help them.
Adding a few alternatives would help them.
