Question ZF6 speed

Was driving along the other day and my tranny casing snapped and sent my transfer case and into the ground. only thing that saved me is the rear ujoint broke. any one every hear of the case braking like this before? i mean ive seen driveshafts and ujoints break and bellhousings but never the casing around the output shaft.

That sucks man... sorry to hear. I've never heard of that happening either though.

And sorry to derail the thread, but do you happen to have any bigger pics of your truck? It looks great! I have what looks to be almost the exact same truck. (minus all the mods)
If yours is the color I'm thinking it is, it's not a very common color and I've always wanted to see one like it lifted or leveled with bigger tires.

I have seen this happen on automatics but I do not think I have heard it happen on a manual.

well just saw that the accident trashed the syncros and chain in my transfer case. And the guy that build the tranny is saying if we decide to warranty it, and is now taking his sweet *** F****** time getting back to me. the warranty is 5 year 100k miles and the case broke and there is so much flake in the fluid it looks like tin foil. wtf do u mean if!!!!!

That sucks, sorry. Transmission guys that really know what they are doing are a rare breed. Hope the guy stands behind his work, and sorry for your, uh, problem.

Cool, thanks!

Hopefully tranny guy will step up and fix it, but with that kind of damage you never know... he'll probably be looking to try and slither out of it to save money. It seems like more and more often in todays economy the word "warranty" is just that.... nothing more but a word. The warranty is "there"...... until something happens.

Then it is more of a case of, "this is a 5 year warranty"..... until you bring it in broken. Then we make some outrageous claim about how you no longer qualify for warranty. I'm into extreme backcountry/mountain snowmobiling and this problem is especially bad with the manufacturers. Polaris is probably the worst of the bunch.... absolute crooks!

i posted a gallery with pics of the pickup and tranny damage. The sent me a new tranny after i threatened law suit. Still got to rebuild my transfer case and get a new drive shaft, but thats cheap compared to a new tranny price.

Thanks for the pics. That is definitely the same color truck as mine, cool to see it leveled out. It looks good, I might consider 285s and a level over my initial lift plan. Hmmm...

Also, for anyone wanting to see the pics - it took me a while to find the gallery. I dunno why it wouldn't come up when I click the gallery thing on your post, but I found it eventually. Here is the link: Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum - GotDiesel85's Album: whatever
