just got done swapping in a 99 zf6 in to my 96 f350. it was an auto. the only problem i have is i cant get the clutch to release completely. cant put it in gear with the motor running, wont shift with the clutch but i can "float" the gears. i have the stock obs pedals and master cylinder with a zf6 slave cylinder.6 speed flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate. was there supposed to be a spacer behind the flywheel like the tc had? any ideas? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif its been done for 2 days and cant get this last little bit worked out. ive been so frustrated ive thought about selling it lol. any help is greatly appreciated. jesse :

Glad to hear that you got it fixed. But who said that Auto's were better. I have tore a bunch of them out, but never a manual. Heck, I have 247,000 on mine and so far. Knock on Wood, still shifting smooth. I've still running the same clutch and DMF that rolled of the lot back in 97 when I bought the truck new. I have not heard of many like that, but it is true. I'm sure that the clutch will have to be replaced here in a few months, but so far, no slipping, but I know she will not last forever. Keep us posted on how the 6 does for you.
