ahhh.......didn't realize that....

here is my parts list.....

Here is my NEW parts list:
- Clutch kit
- Clutch master cylinder
- Slave cylinder
- Hydraulic lines
- starter
- Clutch pedal assembly (i can get this new from Ford for $65)
- Transmission mount
- Flywheel


Used parts:
- ECM (out of a '96 4.0 4wd 5-speed)
- Transmission
- manual transmission floor pan

anything i am missing?


i plan on having everything installed besides the flywheel, transmission, ECM, and hydraulic lines BEFORE i drop the transmission......then i should be able to detach the driveshafts, drop the transfer case, drop the automatic tranny, swap the flywheel, bolt up the manual transmission, bolt up the transfer case, and re-install the driveshafts.......

all my bolts should be good since i have a low milage truck....the only ones i am concerned about is the transmission mount bolts.....

do i need to remove the crossmember to drop the transmission? i plan on dropping the t-case before i drop the tranny......i also plan on draining the fluid out of both.....well as much as i can by dropping the pan on the tranny......

also, will a '97 Ranger clutch work on the '03 transmission? or will an '03 clutch work with the '97 flywheel?

i can get either one new D.......the 6 bolt is $69.99 and the 8 bolt is $54.99......i am going to order both of them and return the one i don't need.....cause my luck, if i order 1 i will need the other

do you know D. if the '97 clutch will fit on a '03 M50D-R1HD tranny, or if a '03 M50D-R1HD clutch will work with a '97 flywheel?

i found the differences in the '97 clutch and the '98+ clutch to be .312" larger on the '98 + clutches........

should i get a '98 OHV flywheel so i have a larger clutch? is it worth it?
