Ok so i have found a donor truck for my 5 speed swap, it is a 93-95 F250 ECLB XLT with a 351 V8 Gas with the 5 speed 4x4, Guy will take 1000$. Not sure on the year, i will post when i find out for sure. Will this truck work as a donor for my 97 PSD 4x4? Is the tranny the same? I really want a donor like this so the swap goes more smoothly than just buying a tranny and going by the wind trying to figure things out lol.

Will also be stealing power doors and more goodies for my XL :D

Tranny will not bolt up. I do believe Ford trannys are engine specific when it comes to a 7.3, I do know that one from a 351 will not bolt up though.

i've never heard of someone using one from a 351. I know you can use a 460 5 speed, you just have to still out 2 holes I believe it is.

Unfortunately all one piece. Life would be much easier if you could just change the bell housing wouldn't it.

Are you sure? I thought a 7.3 needs a tranny from a 7.3 and a 460 needs a 460 tranny. That's the way I understand it, when my friend was looking at doing a 5 sp swap I was told that by someone who knows what they are talking about, not saying you don't, but just saying it came from a reputable source.

a 351 trans will NOT work and it is an all aluminum hosing with a fixed bell housing.

$560 one will not work either with out modifications

2. ZF5-s47 FROM A DIESEL. Produced from 96-99
