Will a zf6 work in a 95 powerstroke?

I have a 5 speed 1995 powerstroke dually and im going to have to get the transmission rebuilt I believe as it grinds really badly when dropping into second. I found a used zf6 that supposedly works great and has zero problems...

Do any of you guys know if it will work on my truck? It came out of a 7.3l truck but Im wondering if the clutch and all will work.

I have heard you have to have the SD T-Case and your driveshaft lengths will be different lengths

it will work, you will need a bfh or a 1inch body lift. and you need the sd t-case plus you will need to get your drive lines re-done

What they said, plus a bit more. Our shop put one in an OBS several years ago, and it would be cheaper to get your zf5 rebuilt or exchanged for a rebuilt one.

Well I can get a good used zf6 for about 600 dollars with the clutch, pressure plate, and hydraulics. Where as it will cost a minimum of 950 plus tax to get my zf5 fixed... I hear the zf6 holds up a lot better to since it has an oil pump and such in it.

Well you'll only have to get one driveshaft shortened, and move the trans crossmember back, get the zf6 wiring harness, plumb in an oil cooler, and the normal few other odds and ends.

I wouldn't say the zf6 is the more durable of the 2, but if it's what you want then I say go for it. Oh and take pics for the guys who haven't seen one.

Really? From what I read people go through syncros like crazy on the 5 speed. If that wasnt the case I would stick with the five...

My second gear is basically impossible to use if you are moving...so I either start in second or move from first to third.
