Tranny Oil filter on Zf5

I have a diesel site Trans Oil filter and pressure gauge, mounted underneath the truck. My question is, would I be able to move that from my current E4OD and put it on my future zf5? Or would it even be worth it to have on a zf5? Thanks guys.

It wouldn't do anything. In most cases a manual transmission is just a box of gears, in an lubricant bath. The turning of the gears splashes the lubricant around a little, but there's no pump that's part of the inherent function of a manual transmission like there is with an automatic, in which the fluid is primarily used hydraulically. So there would be no way to pass the lube through the filter.

The ZF-6 has an oil pump that _can_ be used to pump fluid through a cooler and/or external filter, and it's integrated into the transmission's gearing. But it's still _auxiliary_ to the tranny's function.

In short, you don't need it on a ZF5.

I agree with madpogue. You could add it in there if you wanted to add an external pump (and those are expensive ... see Weldon, Tilton or Mocal pumps). At that point, you would probably go the whole enchilada and add an external stacked-plate oil cooler and temperature controlled switch to turn the pump on and off. Add the hoses, fittings and other hardware and you've got a nice (albeit expensive) project. Cheers!
