M indeed stands for m5od. In 87+ broncos and f150, it designates the M5R2 mazda sourced trans. In F250 and 350 it designates the ZF5.I’m assuming the trans code “M” is m5od? It’s a 4sp with OD. Is this the same as the Mazda trans I have heard about? I’m guessing it’s not a very heavy duty trans. That would be the zf5 and 6 correct? I’ve not had a manual OBS ford until now so I don’t know as much about the different transmissions they used.
M5OD is often thrown around a lot but its not an actual transmission. It just means any manual 5 speed overdrive trans. You will see the ZF, M5R2, and the ranger sized M5R1 listed as M5OD.
