Post Need a measurement - full size Ford Mazda 5 spd

Got my truck finally running and apparently there was something in the T-18 that didn't drain out. After a quick maybe 20-30 mile tops shake down run 3rd gear has been blown away and the tranny is full of shavings... A nice froth and some kind of goo came out afterwards.

Anyways,

Particularly the Mazda M50D-R2 (or known as a M5R2 as well). I do believe the most specific application is 88-96 Bronco's, though they were used in F150's behind the 300 I6 and I think the F250's somewhere too.

Pic of Mazda M50D-R2 (M5R2) - bottom of picture - 56k huge

*This is not to be confused with the Mazda M50D-R1, which is basically the only manual offered in Rangers since the genII's ('88 and up)

Need the front of the bellhousing to the end of the tail shaft (right where it connects to the T-case). if it's close enough to what I have now then I'm seriously going to consider swapping this tranny in.

If it ends up being similar enough in length to what I have and If someone happens to see this and is interested in selling, I need:

The tranny and t-case adapter - nessecary
Throwout bearing - nessecary
T-case shifter linkage (preferable if it had a manual T-case)
Flywheel - not ultra important but would be nice, 300 I6 only!
Pressure plate - preferable
Clutch disk - preferable

I'm looking at around $150-$200 depending on what you have along with it/how nice it is.

No tailhousing if its 4x4.


If you get a mazda seal up the shift rail plugs or put in metal ones if they are still ruber. Then your mazda will live long life.

I thought that was only an issue in the RBV mazda transmissions?

Which is RBV?

Mine was a Mazda behind a straight 6 in a f-150 88 vintage. PO ran it without oil and I put in a new cluster shaft and input shaft. Then I replaced some of the rubber plugs with steel expandable ones. The others I sealed up with rtv, then it didn't leak anywhere.

How so? I doubt they would have made a separate 2wd and 4wd casting. And I know they weren't divorced cases.

RBV = Ranger Based Vehicle

The tailhousing just bolts on, it's removed if there is a t-case that is needed (as the adpater bolts in place there) and most had different output shafts. At least last I remeber on ford it was that way.


edit:

found a 4x4 mazda, just with adapter bolted on http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/88-96...spagenameZWDVW

and a 2wd with tailhousing. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FORD-...spagenameZWDVW

maybe were just confusing part names?

I think so, because the piece thats on the back I was calling a tailhousing in the first pic. I thought they were called the same thing, just one is 4x2 (2nd one) and the other 4x4.

Helps a ton! I had no expectation of it being super exact, but close enough to not mess up driveline angles and be too long/short for the driveshaft. actually if it's a bit shorter that'd help me out just a tad.

Again, a million thanks!
