ZF5 Rebuild

Hey guys, I'm a space cadet and posted my thread in the wrong section. I was thinking I didn't have very much activity on it. Whatever, here it is.

Transmission removal and rebuild ZF5

Still trying to figure out were to get shims for the preload without having to buy an entire kit for 100$+, when I only need two or so shims on one size.

Done researching for the night, Im just trying to find everything I need so I dont have to take the transmission back out.

I'm reading something about an upgraded shift fork? I can't seem to find much on it....

I remember the release lever being more of a problem on the SD's than the OBS trucks. I'll look for a TSB on it, but that's the part I used on my 94. It was worth the $20 just to replace it when I put the new tranny in. Cheers!

You are probably right, I have been having a terrible time finding information about the "defective lever" Maybe thats because it doesn't exist haha.

I couldn't agree more with it being worth 20$ considering the work involved to drop the tranny. I did do it in about 2 hours though, took my time. First time ever working on a zf5 here o.O

Oh, awesome. I might not bother change it right now them. Appreciate it.


Didn't get much done on the transmission today, was over at the shop this morning getting ready and my sister pulled in. She needed a new rocker on her car for inspection. Spend a good part of the day on that, finishing it up tomorrow morning. Then I can put my attention back into the transmission, ill grab some pictured too.

Anyhow. Just finished my sister car a while ago, started back on my project. Got the shaft about apart, I was having a 4th gear pop out problem and I have yet to find anything out of the ordinary until now.


The last year on the tranfercase side of the main shaft has about 3/32" of walk back and forth. No other gears were lose like this, and when you fiddle with the play of the gear, it will pop out.

Very hard to explain, but I guess im trying to say I found something that might have been my 4th gear pop out? I'm going to go pull it off right now, then I have 2 gears left after that. Then the main shaft is completely broken down.


Bummer* Bought MTL, not supposed to use it with new syncros? lol.....they do a good job advertising it "Perfect friction coeficient for sycronizers" jerks...
