    A friend of mine found a 92 f250 diesel 2wd w/5speed man trans. The truck is solid although the trans jumps out of reverse. Sometimes it is OK and others it's not. My question is do you think it is the gears or forks. What are the common issues with this trans?? The gear shifter in the truck seems to have lots of latteral movement when in the gears, this is making me think of a bent fork.

    Any expertice would be greatly appreciated.

    those zf5's are kinda known for that.it could be a bent fork or a bad reverse syncro,either way it will have to come apart to be fixed
