I had the Tranny (5 speed Mazda unit) in my old '92 F250 rebuilt completely about 7 years ago at a shop in Hammonton. They did great work, and I ran the truck for another 50k, sold it, and it was still going as of 2 years ago. I can get you the number if you want.

Well, it depends how far south you are. I'm at exit 131 off the GSP. I have time problems also!
I did my zf a few years ago (about 80k ago at this point) using an exploded-view diagram, basic tools, and some wire ties to hold things together while I tried to fit the guts back in the case. Heat this, tap that, etc. Was fun.
Just sucked for me as I didn't have any workbench space, so I rebuilt mine on the driveway on a white sheet (so I could find little parts easy).
