I may have a solution for ya,

Did you buy the adapter yet? If not, you may want to go with a gas transmission they are much easier to find and have a wider gear ratio.

The diesel 5 speed has a 4.41 1st gear
the gas 5 speed has a 5.7? 1st gear.

the gears on the gas trans are further apart, but if you but 3200k governor springs in your 12 valve you'll have no problem pulling gears with a good load.

The Gas trans has a little smaller bolt pattern

I would go with a gasser ZF6, the 6 speeds have the same gear ratios as the diesels
