Need a favor from someone with a 6 speed

I have a ZF6 that's been sitting in front of my 95 for way too long now. I ran into a dead end trying to find the spacer plate. Ford no longer makes them and every junk yard I have called doesn't have them.

I have checked every thread that I could find and it's either 1/8, 3/16, 1/4 or 10ga thick. If anyone with a ZF6 can measure the thickness of the spacer I would be vary grateful.

Thanks. I ended up making one out of 10ga which I am hoping is close enough. Hopefully will find out tomorrow. Trans is bolted up to my 95 and the pedals are in place. Might be able to take if for a test drive in front wheel drive tomorrow if I get the hydraulics sorted out.

I think that plate aligns the starter so hopefully you got it made right. When I did my swap I was able to find a shop near me to order one. It was a ford part and brand new and not too expensive. Maybe like $40. Might be worth checking with a shops to see if they can order one.

Ford was my first choice but only one space was listed in the system and that dealer couldn't find it. I don't think the spacer aligns the starter. the three bolt holes pass through the spacer into the bell housing so it can't really be adjusted. Either way, the plate I made has been working fine. Thanks for the help.

The truck is up and running, currently have a few hundred miles on it. Only thing left is to finish up the front drive shaft and shim the carrier down some more due to a vibration around 70mph.
