Re: transmission type?
>>>When I replaced the Mazda 5-speed in my F-150 the salvage yard asked if I had the Mazda or ZF tranny. I looked on the tranny for the numbers and was told it was Mazda. I asked what the difference was and they said there was a ZF in some vehicles and this was a similar tranny to the Mazda except it was not as well built as the Mazda. Of course since I was replacing this tranny it didn't make me feel any better to hear there was one worse I could have. I believe you may have this light duty ZF transmission. Your local Ford dealer should be able to tell you exactly what you have if you can give them an I.D. # off the tranny casing. Laters.
