Re: Universal 5424 transmission

The new ZF6 is about $1200. The rebuild cost was closer to $1800-$2000. The ZF6 is something like 1.5" longer than the HBW5 that I had attached to our 5416. If you have enough room at the other end, it may be a matter of adjusting the engine mounts.

We were replacing the mounts anyway, so the extra length wasn't really a big deal for us. I didn't look into whether there was a "better" option.
