Auto to manual swap.

So Im in the process of doing a swap on my 1995 F250 but need a couple of things, the clutch pedal assembly, clutch fork and pressure plate bolt size/thread. Will a clutch pedal assembly from a 1992 f250 IDI work? It had a ZF5 in it and is the same body style so just need to make sure, and what is the proper bolt size? I cant find it anywhere, I have a dual mass setup on it if that helps and also will any clutch fork from gas or diesel zf5 work??
Thanks guys, Jacob

Buy a new fork; supposedly the latest design from Ford is an improvement. Not something you want to scavenge anyway. Pedal box should be the same; put some new bushings in it while you have it out ($20-ish at the dealer).

DO NOT USE a dual-mass flywheel. They were ticking time bombs when they left the factory; there's no reason to put such a time bomb into an otherwise good truck.

Sorry, on the pressure plate bolt specs.

Ok have a new question I have the zf5 bolt to the engine and held up by a jack, Im just going to modify my cross member to work but have an issue, the engine mounts are holding the engine and tranny in line as its supposed to be but the outout shaft is not centered at all. measurement from center of output to inside of passenger framerail is 16 3/16 and drivers side is 20 3/16s whats the deal? is this correct? Just basic theory it should be in center right? Ive tried pushing it sideways but the mounts on engine pull it right back! do I just drill the new holes and put it together? does the Tcase adjust for this issue or is it designed as so??

Ive got everything else done clutch, pedals, floor hump hole,hydraulics and new fork but this is my hold up now. Just need an answer ASAP I looked at the auto that I pulled and it seems it may have been same way because the mount on the tail housing is off center to the drivers side appearing to make it mount in the center of the xmember.

The engine does sit right-of-center. I don't know how much, offhand.
