Auto to zf5 swap

I bought a 97 ccsb f350 7.3 a while ago and the previous owner had done a manual swap I'm assuming because it has a 5 speed with a automatic column. The steering wheel has cruise control but does not work and they wired it to start off a push button and I had to hard wire the rear speakers and left front speaker and the front dome light doesn't work. I wired the speakers off of a harness with plug to the left of the petals under some trim and I'm assuming there is another piece of the harness that's not there? Am I going to have to get a 5 speed colum or where do u start to make all this right again.

Re: Auto to zf5 swap

welcome to PSN.
steering column swap is a pretty easy job. the truck may have come with a 5 speed and had a bad steering column, and the first one they found in junkyard was an automatic column.

post the VIN number and i will decode it for what it came from the factory with.

owner of almost to many fords.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
