Hello everyone I am new to the group. I recently purchased a 1993 Bronco as a project and I am going to be doing a 5 speed swap. I am sure that this topic has been discussed in the past but I have some questions that I have not been able to find that answers to. I am planning to swap in a M5R2 and have all the parts needed however I am needing to know the length of the front and rear drive shafts. The Bronco that I have came with a 6 inch lift and 35 inch tall tires. Also what do I need to do about the electrical part of the E4OD to bypass it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You'll have to measure for driveshafts yourself. Many places online have easy diagrams showing how.

As for the computer, you'll need one from a 87-94/5 with a manual trans and your engine size, or a c6 trans and your engine size.

Will a computer from a f150 with same engine and manual transmission work?

ASAP, find out if speed control if equipped, recall worked out of was completed @ Recalls Look-up by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number); or @ Welcome to Ford Owner | Official Ford Owner Site; or ... have VIN ready. While there, see most Ford dealer maintenance/repairs done @ any dealership nation-wide.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
See this guide by jowens1126 to confirm recall status @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than 94-96.

I should add that pretty much any info you find to a ZF5 swap will directly correlate to your swap. The ZF5 is the same outer dimensions as the M5R2. The zf is just a HD big brother.

S5-42 (7003) Service Tips & Troubleshooting Guide, Jan 99
by Mike W via rsgear.com


S5-42 Tips; "...There are three rubber plugs on top of the transmission that leak fluid only when the truck is in motion so when parked there will be no tell tail signs of a leak. You can replace the plugs yourself or take it to the dealer and have them check it for fluid lose and replace the faulty plugs but it's not cheap. Thing is, the seals are going to fail and if caught to lateas in my case cost you a bundle. Another set back for theback yard mechanic is the bleeding of the slave cylinder. If not done exactly correct your clutch will not work no matter how much you bleed it. Bleeding the slave cylinder, which is inside the transmission and not on the outside like older ones, relies more on gravity to bleed and not pumping. It's just a big pain in the ass actually and it will test your patience.
