ZF 2wd to 4wd? and A.I.R pump...?

i need to know if there is a way to adapt the ZF 5spd 2wd to 4wd output? swaping tailshafts n outputshafts?? also any 1 use an A.I.R pump for onboard air? says 35 psi an hour but im sure a big enough tank would suffice, with it being full all the time..

Depends on the ZF you have.
2wd ZF with parking brake attached like those found on tow trucks, it can be converted by unbolting the casting with the parking brake and bolting on a transfer case.
2wd zf from a pickup truck with only an output yoke need to change the tail casting and possibly the main output shaft from a 4wd.

the general idea i've gotten from conversatons about air pumps is that they don't make any psi. if you had a giant tank, and only needed 20 psi it could work. but with the pump running all the time you have to have a valve that unloads the pump or i think it'll burn up. in the stock configuration they are always pumping at basically zero psi and are vented when the air isn't needed.

try it and report back.

you don't have to have it. ford racing sells a delete kit for a mustang i think. it fits fine. let us know how it goes.
