your current driveshafts should work the floor pan from a 1/2 ton will work, but the zf5 needs to be from a DIESEL no gasser has the same bell housing bolt pattern

ok so i got a phoenix friction clutch and flywheel and pedals are in and have the trans waiting to go in . the next thing is where do i get the neutral safety switch wiring. and the master and slave cylinder i am guessing has to be out of a 97 also and the wonderful ford shop near me told me they couldn't flash the pcm to make it a manual pcm

If you're getting the hydraulics out of a donor truck, just leave the switch on the pushrod. If you're buying new, buy the complete pre-bled kit, and look for one that includes the switch.
