1979 Quadravan Transmission Upgrade

September 26, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a Quadravan on a Ford E350 conversion Van, 460 gas,4WD.

Question:  I am converting a 21′ R.V. to 4-wheel drive using a Quadravan conversion with probably a “205” transfer case and with a adapter plate if needed, I would like to use a ZF 6-speed transmission if it will handle the torque. I know the H.P. will be right around 740 and probably similar torque. Someone told me this would be a good choice. I zfs547don’t know anything about them? Maybe do your gear hardening on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd?   I need gear ratio choices, and keep in mind the rig weighs about 11,000 pounds.  I will run 29″ tires and a 410 rear which will help.

Answer:  Unfortunately there isn’t a way to adapt the ZF 6 speed to a 460 gas block application…

We can do it with a 5 speed ZF transmission rebuilt, dyno tested and to strength we will cryo treat the input, cluster, 3rd gear and 5th gear this trans would bolt up and be adequate for your application.

We can supply it in a 4×4 application with a shift stub and cryo treated gears  your cost is $2400.00 outright, no core required plus freight.

90 Blazer Transfer Case Problem

September 23, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a 1990 Chevrolet Blazer 5.7L 350 HP it’s a 1/2 ton 4WD automatic.

Question:  i have the 700r4 to the NP208, and the last time we went wheeling, I locked in to 4wd and when its engaged, and u try to drive forward it feels like its binding up and then if u go a little further it pops and it releases tension till it spins a few more times and does the same thing in reverse, i CHANGED THE fluid in it and it was clean, no metal chunks but i noticed a piece was sitting in the bottom by the drain plug, and thought maybe it was the magnet but not sure asked a few shops and they said the chain might have stretched out and folded over a link and when that link gets to the tooth it binds up. any help would be nice because i like the 208 and 700r4 but want to know of a rebuild kit or if i can get a built one for off road use, like mudding or rock crawling something strong like the 205.

Answer:   Unfortunately the NP208 is a little weak for off roading. There isn’t any way to build it to be strong like a gear driven NP205

We can offer parts or a rebuilt NP208 or you could upgrade to a NP205

I am confident you have a chain problem in your NP208, you will see below.. price on a rebuilt and core charge then below that a gasket and seal kit and the HD chain

Chevrolet Pickup 27 Spline 81-88 MWTTCGM013 $800.00


Core Charge on Transfer Case $250.00


N.I. Gasket & Seal Kit TSK208 $25.95


43 Chain (1.25” Wide) 36 Links (Round Pins) (Dodge, GM) MWTCL10-025 $100.33


The other option is a 27 spline NP205 with the adapter and coupler for $1100.00 but you will have driveshaft mods and have to buy a new shifter assembly for the NP205, core charge and freight will be added. Give Scott a call 888-824-2012 he can help you.

F250 Difference between ZF S542 ZF S547

I have a F250 7.3L diesel 2WD manual transmission

Question:  Please tell me what is the difference between ZFS542 and ZFS547.

Answer:   The S547 has a higher torque rating than the S542… the S547 has a different design to the syncro teeth. In our opinion both are adequate transmissions for your application.

I have a 1993 Blazer 5.7L 4wd manual transmission

Question:  Any advice would be grateful,i have this nv3500NV 3500 in my blazer and everything seems fine with the thing other than the shifter is a bit sloppy but i drained the oil and and a small piece of what i would guess is a spring shaped like a allen wrench a small roller/bearing deal that looks like a small matchbox car wheel with a nipple on each side and part of the stamped steel reaction plate were at the bottom of the trans stuck to the magnet,i read a article once that said the reaction plate can be removed with the use of a new updated shifter,is this true and what are your thoughts.

Answer: This was a one year of a GM poor design…. This can be fixed by updating the shifter stub assembly with a NV27874 stub assembly. Order the following part:

63 Shifter Assembly, 3rd Design (Internal Detent) NV27874 $135.00

1979 Corvette Trans or Clutch Problem?

September 15, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a Corvette 1979 with the 350 Horse Power Engine.

Question:  My vette has a M21 4-Speed Close-ratio. Drove fine, then in storage for 2 months, and now I can’t get it in gear when the engine is running. Goes in gear just fine with engine off. If I try to start with it in gear with clutch depressed the car jumps like the clutch isn’t working. Could the clutch plates be frozen to the flywheel?

Answer:  Yes sounds like a moisture issue may have seized your clutch disc to the flywheel… best to get it out of the shed and get it out and see if you can get it to break loose.

Let us know what part you need we can help you with clutch and or transmission parts.  You can see the M21 transmission parts we can supply on our site.

Ranger 96 Problem after Rebuild

September 12, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a Ford Ranger 1996 4.0L  OHV 4WD

Question:   I have a M5R1 5 speed that was making noise and a little hard to shift but worked ok. I pulled it and replaced bearings, seals, and synchronizers. The 5th and reverse slider teeth were worn on the tips so I replaced that slider. It works shifts and sounds good. But it now will jump out of 5th gear. I was sure I put that slider in correctly, the dot to the rear of trans, but wandering what else it could be? Would appreciate some advise.

Answer: From you description of the problem we suspect that the 5th gear engagement teeth are will need the following part:

  • MWTF1TZ-7158B-R 5th gear (counter shaft) your cost is $72.80 plus S&H.

What master cylinder to use 1996 Explorer

September 10, 2014 - Author: bartbarton

I have a Ford 1/2 ton 1996 Explorer 5.0L 4WD


Question:  I was wondering if you could give me some advice about this zf I have swapped in to my explorer. I’ve been fiddling around with clutch master cylinders trying to make something work. My issue is the stock ranger manual petal assembly I used fits but the stock master that fits in at a 45″ angle through the firewall and mounts to a stub off the petal assembly is too small to depress the clutch fully. I opted for a zoom Kevlar 11″ clutch so I’m not sure if I rigged up a pivot type system with a remote mounted stock master from a f series truck would it still feel mushy? I was looking at the wildwood clutch master cylinders they offer and I was thinking about getting the 1″ I believe ford stock is. 3/4″ or 7/8″.

Answer:  We would defiantly go with a aftermarket Wilwood.. they are more adjustable
