Auto to zf5 swap

I have a 2wd zf5 from a 1997 f350 bucket truck. I wanna do a manual swap in my 2000 f250 and get rid of the auto. I was curious if I could make this work or if it would be too much work. Is a zf5 from a 97 different than the one that would go In a 2000? Does anyone know if the Clutch pedal would work with my 2000 or the slave cylinder? Any input would be great!

the superduty truck had a zf6 not zf5. I would think you could make everything work with a zf5, but the 2wd into a 4wd will be a pain I would think. Why are you wanting to get rid of the auto, just curious? I know a few guys that have swapped auto to manual and now they wish they had kept the auto.

Auto to zf5 swap

I drive my truck mainly on weekends and I'm always towing with it. Now my auto is about to go out I think so i have a bad taste in my mouth about them. And My last truck was a stick. I don't know if I want to pay more for the auto to be fixed as find out if I like it or do the.
About the zf5 I believe the tail shaft comes off. Would I need a transfer case from an obs to mount up or would my transfer case mount up?

The 2wd trans will not work unless you change the tailshaft and tailhousing which means a complete teardown. The transfercase has to be from a OBS to fit a zf5. I'm not sure what you would do for a crossmember or driveshafts though. Probally need custom made stuff. You would need a clutch peddle from a superduty truck. The hydro parts would have to be superduty too. You would be better off to buy a whole wrecked 99-03 truck to take the stick parts from if you plan to swap. You will need to cut out your trans tunnel and install a tunnel from a 6spd truck though. A 5spd will fit under a Superduty auto tunnel though.

Coming soon: 250/200s, studs, stealth hpop, as soon as I get springs and pushrods.
