E4OD to ZF-5 Help

I want to swap out my E4OD for a ZF-5 transmission. I know many people on here have done this swap. Can someone give me a list of parts that i will need to do this along with any tips to make the swap go easier. Because i do not have a donor truck available so I am trying to gather all the parts I need from local junk yards.

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks,
Colby

Well obviously transmission, shifter, clutch, flywheel, flywheel spacer, I believe you need the rear engine adapter also? Gonna need computer, wiring harness, new column (at least the manual column cover), gauge insert to cover the PRN321, Drive shafts, clutch pedals, master cylinder, slave cylinder, prefit line connecting them.

Its not an easy swap to do, Ive never done it but Ive had tranmissions out of these trucks before. They weigh a ton to start with. To be honest since it says you live in PA, unless you know of a junk yard that I dont that has 94-97 Powerstrokes in abundance you might be better off with a donor truck

Thanks man. I found a 2 wheel drive powerstroke at a junk yard near me and i'm going to try and get as many parts off it as i can. I was planning on buying a new clutch and flywheel from south bend. I just need to find a trans. I believe if i get a trans out of a powerstroke i don't need an adapter plate but i could be wrong. I've been doing alot of reading on this and some people say an automatic pcm will work with a manual trans.

These can be had as a pre-built pre-filled pre-bled sealed assembly. waaaay easier to install, no bleeding hassles.

Indeed, new clutch, flywheel, throwout bearing, pilot bearing should be a given. Probably should get a new fork as well, rather than using the donor (there was a TSB about the fork, IIRC; the replacement is an improvement).

Truck will run on the auto PCM, but I believe it'll throw a constant CE light, with a laundry list of tranny codes.

Ok Thanks!

Will a PCM from a 94 with a manual trans work in a 96?

Uh the PCM should work so long as they are both powerstroke

The whole bleeding thing is something Ive never had an issue with? people say it cant be done yet I get it first try almost every time?
