Mark, do you have a Ford manual, or an aftermarket one? If it is a Ford manual, it should be plenty clear if you follow it step by step. As I recall, there are plenty of pics to go along with the procedures.
There are no tech manuals that I know of that go into the "what if" side of things, because if they did, it would make it 3 times the size. Sometimes you just have to read between the lines and reason out the "what if" parts.
