Question:  I need torque MTFRD003_M5R1settings(bolt)for entire transmission?

Answer: This is a M5R1 transmission we recommend the following torque specifications:

  • All 12mm bolts would be 29 – 33 ft lbs

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.

Give Scott a call 888-824-2012 he can help you.  You can see the other parts we can supply for the M5R1 on our website.

Ford M5R1 Extremely hard to get into 1 and 2 gear

January 22, 2014 - Author: bartbarton


Extremely hard to get into 1 and 2 gear and every time its shifted into reverse the transmission grinds but 3 4 5 work fine,  could this issues be caused by a worn shift fork. The truck is a Ford Explorer 4.0L and has 175000 miles?

Your transmission is and M5R1 2wd.


Based on the condition you describe and our experience we suspect that the clutch may be the issue here not the transmission.  Common problem as the Clutch/Hydraulic  problem gets worse and the slave cylinder starts to fail the 1 & 2 gears get harder to engage and grinds going into reverse.

You will need to drop the transmission, this will give you access the clutch components, it should be very evident that this is the problem.  We can supply the following parts to repair the clutch:

  • Clutch Kit including disc, pressure plate, and bearings plus alignment tool, order our part number MTC07-096 your cost is $125.00.
  • Slave Cylinder (inside bell housing) our part number MTCLSC003 your cost is $55.00 plus S&H.  These are quality LUK clutch products.

If it turns out that the clutch is not the problem we would then recommend you replace the transmission with a factory rebuilt unit, order part number MTFRD005 your cost is $766.66 plus $250.00 core deposit plus freight.

If you need more technical help give Scott a call 888-824-2012 he can help you during the inspection process and assembly of the clutch components, be sure the clutch disc in installed correctly (easily reversed).

Noise on Acceleration and Deceleration

- Author: bartbarton

Ford M5R2 Noise Problem

I recently purchased a Ford F150 with a 5.0L engine, its 4WD and the body was in very good shape for 150,000 miles.  After driving it about 40 miles per day back and forth to work in has started making noise on acceleration and when slowing down.  I have not removed the transmission yet it’s a M5R2 I have observed transmission fluid leaking from the rear seal, and the rubber plugs on top.  I drained the fluid found it to be brown/black and missing probably 1 to 2 quarts of fluid.

What can I expect to find in the way of damaged components inside the M5R2?

Base on our extensive experience with M5R2 remanufacturing you can expect to find a damaged input shaft and most likely a damaged counter shaft.  This damage is in most cases caused by excessive heat due to low fluid.  You should also plan on installing a new bearing overhaul kit with syncro rings at the same time.

Those two parts are identified as item 5 and 32 in our parts illustration
