Sorry, I missed your last question. Both the Sterling pinions are about 1.5" longer the the D60.

Get a Swagelok line lock for brake. Not for emergencies but can be left on and will hold on any hill

I believe a ZF6 requires a different block to bellhousing adapter also.

Not saying your wrong, but on the diesels im pretty sure its a bolt in operation with the right pressure plate.

More good news for DS length and having 1410s, well not good right now, good for later i guess. My brake cables will be slightly more complicated due to the oddball length, but i have and idea on how to make it work after seeing your pics. I definately have enough info to be getting on with, but it doesnt look like im going to score a 10.5 on craigslist.. that means 450$ at a salvage yard.

I considered a line lock, more so that i could mount the button to the shifter for boosted launches at the tracks, but something that will probably come later. For now i can live without, but i would much rather have a mechanical parking / e-brake. oh just checked your link for the line lock, thats a neat little item. Routing may be interesting.

Starting to wonder about buying something else to drive and straight up dismantle this things and start from the ground up... again lol

run the rear brake line from master straight back through fire wall. Best spot was to mount it behind the bottom removeable column cover for ease of install. Also some 90 degree fitings on each end port makes it a staright shot in then back out to firewall eventually to rear brakes.





Holds brake pressure really well for days. I'll use it on a steep hill out wheeling when I have to keep engine running and pull winch cable. Also with my twin stick Tcase I'll throw the rear axle in neutral, front in drive, line lock on , and I gas it while turning on a back tires around corners if needed

I just did a little checking. It looks like it's the 6.0L version of the ZF6 that's different. I thought it was all of them.

Hey guys, ive been reading thru this thread gathering up some of your useful info cuz i plan on someday doing a 14b rear swap...but there is one thing im confused about....maybe im just being dumb but like on most rear axles in fords when look at them from the rear of the truck, the ring gear is on the left, and the pinion is on the right, now a 14b, the ring gear is on the right, and the pinion is on the left. now wouldnt that cause you to move in reverse while in forward gears????? and info on this would be great. Thanx
