May 22, 2014 - Author: bartbarton - No Comments

I have a Ford F250 7.3Lt 2001 with the manual ZF S650 transmission.


Updated Pilot Bearing Kit

Question:   I need to rebuild my zf 6 speed and I have some questions. First is your bearing rebuild kit a complete rebuild kit? I’ve never seen one labeled as a bearing rebuild kit. Second I read that people are putting the 6.0 pilot bearing in mine failed again and I saw you have a repair kit but little information on what all it is which would you suggest? and if it matters I have a luk clutch and fly wheel but that also may change. My other question is my input shaft is terribly worn and also has a lot of play. I’d like to get a new one Chryo treated as well but do you have anything to fix the input shaft bearing and keep it from wearing out so easily?

Answer:  We have see this problem a number of times the pilot bearing premature excessive wear or failure causing the input shaft
