m5od-r2 rebuild manual?

I have been looking for the disassembly and assembly procedures for the m5od-r2 transmission out of my 1990 5.0L v8 bronco, unfortunately all I have found is a blown up diagram. Does anyone know of any good resources on this particular transmission?

Cool title, thanks for the "-R2" in it! :)

Ever think about investing in a set of real Ford Shop Manuals for your
Bronco? :)

I copied off the important parts for a ZF (M5od-HD) overhaul but didn't
bother doing that for the Mazda (M5od-R2). :/

Since then the Linux software/drivers for my Mac/HP scanner has gone
belly up. :/ Updates/Upgrades leave some of that good old stuff in the
dust. Recently my Mac/HP LaserJet has been left out in the cold too. :/

But besides all that the factory instructions on the ZF really suck. :/

The ZF is way easier to work on than Ford wants you to know.

A local transmission repairman ("the ZF guy in Tucson") told me over the
phone how to take a ZF apart. "I slam 'en down on concrete :)" -he said

Worked like a charm! :)

Even if you got the Ford Shop Manual it'd pay to call around and maybe
go talk to a guy that rebuilds 'em for a living before tearing into yours.
That's what I'd do, is all I'm sayin'. ;)

Might turn out you may not need any more than an "exploded view". :)

ps- For others looking, here's where the stuff is for ZF and NP435...

Why are you going on about the ZF? The -R2 is the Mazdog.

Steve, Ford's ZF instructions are long and detailed and suck because
of a real bad case of overkill. Wondering if their Mazda instructions
was the same way.

You're STILL going on about a transmission that the guy DOESN'T have.

Yes, there are a few other specific steps only referenced in that caption. But that's the overall procedure.

Try Googling around for the M5OD and you'll find something out there on a complete teardown/rebuild for the R1 out of a Thunderbird or Ranger or Explorer or something... It's essentially the same unit internally, I think, from what I've read and been told. I found it a year or two ago when I thought I was going to do that job myself. I decided that I'd rather let a professional do it from a cost perspective. I don't have half the tool I'd need to do the job right and by the time I bought all them and the parts to do the job, I could pay a guy to do it cheaper.

LOL :)

Got off my lazy butt and checked out the Ford instructions for the Mazda
M5od-r2 is covers 35 pages. The T18 covers 17 pages. The {name not to
be mentioned again ;} covers 55 pages.

If my scanner was able to scan I'd scan it.

Cool thanks Miesk, we're gettin' somewhere! :)

So that's the -disassembly- of the transmission.

Got the -assembly- of the transmission? :)
(I'll see if I can find it too)

{edit} Found it and then some at...
http://www.broncolinks.com/index.php?index=57

{edit} Here the assembly .pdf...
http://web.archive.org/web/200605122...R2Assembly.pdf

Miesk, your other .pdf was disassembly-and-assembly for
the sub assemblies and is complete in that.

As soon as I get all three I'll put 'em in my ~/etc directory
with the "un- speakable ;)" transmission stuff.

Thanks Miesk. That MN12 site was the one I'd found the info from. After I posted that, I went back looking for it and couldn't find it anymore. That explains it. Never thought to search the WayBack machine. I had actually printed it out back then as was going to compile it into a reference book for when I got the time to tear out and repair the transmission. I'm not sure now where I put them.
