    Hey everyone, My truck that I have now have a orginal E40D tranny with a 194,500 onit. The truck is a 1993 F-250 4x4, 7.3 IDI. I was thinking about swaping in a ZF standard transmission, Becasue I really don't like the E40D's, Also the E40D that is in it know feels like its on its way out, I not really sure if I want to spend the money for a rebuild on it, I rather have a standard tranny in there instead, So has anyone ever done this before. Whats involded other than swaping out the tranny and adding in the clutch parts, I like my truck and would like to keep it for a long while. Let me know.

    I have done conversions on other vehicles. It is realitively straight forward on older none computer controlled vehicles. Especially if they were offered with a manual. Besides the transmission, you will need the pedal assembly, mounts, flywheel, clutch linkage or lines, etc. On computer controlled vehicles you need those parts as well. I would think you could find many of the needed parts on ebay and at junkyards.

    I'm getting ready to convert my 1987 F350 C6 to a T-19. I was lucky to salvage the clutch pedal brackets, and slave cylinder from a similar truck.

    Make sure you put a Single mass flywheel with an LUK clutch, you'll never look back. The SMF is a very important upgrade. I got mine from dial-a-clutch

    1990 F250 7.3 IDI, ZF5 dana 60 conversion, SMF LUK Clutch 216,000 miles
    1987 F350 6.9 IDI C6 soon being converted to T-19.
