I found a five speed in a 1993 Mazda B 3000 two wheel drive pickup. Will my transfer case bolt to it and will it work in my b2?

Will a M5od from a two wheel drive ranger work? Can the tail shaft be removed and replaced with the Tcase?

Sorry but no. Your best bet is to get a 4 wheel drive transmission. The M5OD is a good choice but has to have the flywheel and clutch assemble from the same vehicle. Tech section has good info on the swap. Good luck. 👍

with a 5mod. It has a electronic transfer gear case. Can I use this if I use the fly wheel and clutch for the 4.0? Also will mt manual transfer gear case work?

If you're bolting it to a 2.9L... the 4.0L flywheel and clutch will work and the bell housing bolt pattern is the same

I'm not positive that your manual transfer case will bolt to the M5OD... but my gut says yes.

2.8L has the same bell housing pattern.

I'm not totally sure about the flywheel though.

Yes. Use the 4.0 clutch assembly, hydraulics and flywheel. You will also need the starter, it’s wire harness and solenoid. It will bolt to the 2.8. The manual transfer case will also bolt to the M5OD. Depending on your original transmission, driveshaft length may be an issue.

The vehicle the trans would be coming out of is a 1996 with a 4.0.

I was referring to your Bronco. What transmission does it have now? BC you mentioned a 2.8 I would assume it’s an 84 or 85. If it has an A4LD the drive shafts will work with the new M5OD. If it has the Fm145 then the rear shaft will be too short and the front too long.

At the risk of confusing you further, the possibility of additional issues could arise. Some early 84 models had a transfer case with a shift lever that clocks different than all the others. It has a different shifter to compensate for the clocking.
