i have a 68 xr7 cougar with a 302 with a c4 outback and was thinking about switching it over to a manual transmission was wondering how hard is it..is it possible to put in a newer 5 speed?

It's not difficult once you have all the components. There's a ton of info on the swap here and elsewhere on the web. I recommend going with a cable clutch setup, e.g., mustangsteve.com .

Just search up on the top right of the page, T5 swap. A whole bunch of forums on people doing them or have done them will come up. I have done 2 so far and it was pretty easy but you need to do some research though as you will need to pick whether you want a hydraulic clutch set up or the cheaper cable clutch method, and whos experience with each companies set up is better, etc.
