ZF5 Adapters

We offer adapter plates for the Ford ZF5 transmissions found in 1987-1998 Ford pickups. All out adapters use the 6.0/6.4 PSD starter prices include Free shipping .

The 7.3 version fits transmissions from the 6.9 IDI , 7.3 IDI and 7.3 Power-stroke. We also have a version for the 460 Gas bellhousing.

We do not make any for the small block Ford or v10 modular transmissions, as they do not have room for the Cummins flywheel and larger clutch.

There are several flywheel choices for these transmissions but we recommend a NFW7223 with a 6303 bearing for the input shaft .But the “stock” Dodge 12″ first or 2nd gen flywheels will work as well . The dodge 13″ flywheel such as a LFW300 can be used but will require a starter spacer .. Any flywheel will need bored out for this bearing and most Auto machine shops will do this fairly cheap . This 6303 Bearing is included with all ZF5 adapters. There are also a lot of clutch options , But we recommend you use a Ford 12″ or 13″ with the NFW7223 flywheel. 13″ will last longer towing heavy .

Some Clutch parts numbers are (13″ LUK 07-154  (organic ) ,, for 250+ Hp we have had good luck with a LUK 07-171  Cerametallic, or If you have a 12″ dodge flywheel you need a 12″ clutch like a LUK 07-092 is a good model for fairly “stock” engines .

Our adapters Use the 6.0/6.4 Ford PSD starter as it fits well with larger downpipes and is cheap and commonly stocked at any parts store. This does require a small modification to the engine block and the starter. For mounting the adapter to engine we recommend buying flange head M12-1.75 x 40 MM grade 10.9 bolts .
