Cummins to Ford 460 5-Speed and Automatic

Sunday, September 21, 2014 12:36:42 AM MST7MDT

ZF5 Manual Transmission - 1987-94 Rated for 420 ft./lbs.  1995-97 470 ft./lbs. 

These transmissions work ok behind the Cummins, but the gas versions may have wider spacing in the gear ratios than the diesel versions.  If you are planning on high performance upgrades, consider a 6 speed swap- as the Cummins will produce more torque than this transmission is rated for.

Cummins to Ford 6.0 Power Stroke ZF 6-Speed

Friday, May 30, 2014 11:14:51 AM MST7MDT

ZF6- Ford started using this transmission design in ’99 and they work well behind the Cummins. They are rated for 520 ft/lbs of torque. Our adapter plate for this transmission uses the Ford 6.0 starter, so no grinding of the transmission or engine block is required for starter clearance.

It is possible to use the Ford 6.0 single mass clutch with our custom flywheel. Some stock application 6.0’s have a dual mass clutch these will not work. The best option is to use a Ford 7.3 ZF6 clutch with the proper flywheel all of which is included in the complete conversion kits.

There is a split between the 6.9L and 7.3L diesel engines in the late 1980's. Using model years as a general guide is usually a good way to judge which transmission you have.  However model year can not solely be relied upon.

If you have a 4-speed manual or 3-speed automatic, swapping in a 5-speed manual is something to seriously consider. The earlier transmissions were tough, but they simply were not designed for the torque the Cummins engines produce. Their input shafts are smaller, the clutches are smaller, and without an overdrive you will lose all reasonable fuel economy at highway speeds due to running the engine at such high RPM's. 

Some guys say the Ford ZF-5 is a better transmission than the Dodge NV4500 and others say just the opposite. That debate aside; from a conversion standpoint the ZF-5 is better and easier- this article explains why.
