  2. Ford 4-speed to ZF5 conversion in a Step Van

    Transmission, Adapter, Transfercase Discussion
    Greetings, I hope some of you have been through this process before and can shed some light for me. I'll figure it out on my own, but it will take 5 times longer than if I get feedback from someone who has already done it. I've got a 93 Grumman-Olsen Step van with the 4BT and a Ford...

  6. 4BT to a ZFS5-42 to a Dana 20 TC...How?

    Transmission, Adapter, Transfercase Discussion
    So in planning for my 4BT swap into my '76 Scout II, I have decided that the ZFS5-42 gas tranny is what I will go with (because it is a direct bolt-up...right?). I wanted to go with the diesel version because of the more usable 4.14 1st gear. However through my research I believe it wont mate up...
  7. Ford Manual Transmissions Side by Side (ZF and Mazda)

    Transmission, Adapter, Transfercase Discussion
    I happened to have a pair of Ford manual transmissions sitting side by side in my shop so I snapped a few pictures for reference.

    Transmission, Adapter, Transfercase Discussion
    I found a mechanic that has a brand new never been used ford zf5, its been sitting in his shop for 5 years. He says he will give it to me for $900 (sounds very negotiable) The bad thing is that I need a 4X4 transmission, any one converted one from 2wd to 4X4?? Is it worth to get this "BRAND...
