I just picked up a rebuilt zf5 for 500 bucks. Now just need to piece everything else together. Been doing searches but can find what im looking for. Can I use slave cylinder, master cylinder, pedals, etc from a gas job? Thanks

I don't think the pedal assembly will work. Iirc the gas trucks gas pedal is cable control and the diesel is electronic

i bought my slave clyinder from car quest new and you are going to want to get the cross member out of a manual powerstroke it fits alot better, found out the hard way, but other then that i had my chip reburned for a manual and set the auto switch of the tranny in neutral and left it as is. i got clutch pedals out of a 93 f150 i beleve 92 to 97 f series work and your drive shaft will need to be longer casue the zf5 is shorter i had to get mine extended with my 4 inch lift anyway but other then that it was pretty easy.

how about driveshafts? Will they work out of a gasser? and does it have to be crew cab, or will EC work? Sorry for so many gasser questions but I have access to a few of them in a local boneyard

Separate pedal. The "pedal box" is just the brake and clutch pedals. This would be a good time to replace the bushings.

For the hydraulics, it's waaaay easier and more reliable (and ultimately no more expensive, possibly even cheaper), to buy a pre-built pre-bled master-line-slave assembly. No bleeding, and takes about 5 minutes to install.

You'll also need the column "collar" from a manual truck, unless you want to confuse people with the automatic shifter sticking out....

I was actually able to get the full pre-bled assembly through advanced auto for $130. So that worked perfect and I got a brand new brake/clutch pedal box on ebay OEM part number for $110. As far as the "collar", I can just buy the top plastic piace and remove the shifter right? Thanks

Idk if there is a difference in a gasser to diesel as far as strenghts and U joints sizes, but as far as the lenghts ull need to find a parts truck with the same wheel base as u or have yours lengthend. Try and find diesel drive shafts.

some guys swap the whole steering columes. I tried but broke a bolt trying to undo the manual one so i ended up snaping off the auto gear selector and keeping my origanal colume in. I also tore apart dash to install the little black cover for the PRND21.

Gasser pedals WILL work. you just need them from a 92-97 truck

Slave cylinder WILL work from a 460 ZF(external slave). But not from a small block zf(internal slave).

As for drive shafts. the rear one needs to be from the same wheel base AND you have to have the same t-case. 87-95 had a 1356(slip yolk) 96/97 had a 4407(fixed yolk). AND you have to have the same trans(good luck finding a CCSB 5 speed), you would be better off having yours shortened

Also the front driveshaft has to be from a ZF5(what engine doesnt matter). But you will need one from a F250 if you have a F250 and from a f350 if you have a f350
