5sp convertion

Iím converting my 1996 7.3 auto trans to a ZF5sp
I just got my new South Ben clutch and flywheel and bearing
My question is, there is a spacer between the crank and the automatic flywheel
Does that spacer need to be install with my new manual flywheel?

Just to give this topic some closure, I'm gonna go ahead and venture, "No." I just took my stock flywheel off last night, and there was no spacer. I'm guessing you won't need it either. Or, at this point, you figured that out already and just never got back here to update it.

So, how you like the SB? Which friction kit did you go with?

How has the conversion gone so far? Have you gotten to hanging pedals, slave cyl., etc?

Yes pedals are in, shifter was sorted out and clutch cylinder was install
I haven’t install the clutch and flywheel yet
I was busy restoring my son Ford Ranger all summer
the ranger was suppose to get push aside for the winter but it look like the work will continue thru the winter

Sounds good. I too am looking at doing a 5 spd conversion, and a 4wd conversion on a 96 reg cab dually.
