Steve, some specifics might help here: what is a 2nd and 3rd gen Dodge truck?  Not everyone will know this - including me.

Check the Monroe website and look for what is recommended for your truck.  Then look on sites such as Rockauto.com and search for the shocks the Monroe people recommend.  RA.com is a good, cheap internet source for good parts.

That's not the way to win friends and influence people.

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / 91 ram temp gauge wierd
« on: October 02, 2014, 07:43:52 AM »
It may also be connected that you are using a motor that was not built after 1973 in a '91 vehicle.  The sending unit and gauge may not be in the same ohm range.  To be sure I suggest you install an after-market gauge and be certain of the temp.
An unrelated question: how did that truck pass the California Smog Test?

Nice pics, but...
That's the wrong grill for a '79 RamCharger.  A '79 had quad headlamps.  That looks more mid-'70s.

General Mopar Discussions / 2002 PT Cruiser tranny issues....

No idea when the tranny was serviced last.  They just bought the car 10 days ago.....


From whom or what?  If a dealer, take it back - there's clearly a problem.  If from a Private Party, she should call them and let them know.  Their reaction will signify if they knew this was coming.  Nothing will change except knowing that she bought a problem waiting to happen.

Oh, so you've been 4F since '71?  OK, so it's not something that has happened in the last 3 years....

OK, so are you simply going to be sitting on the pontoon boat in the yard, or are you actually going to be putting it on the water?

I was wondering the same?  Ha!

MEMBERS Project Cars in Progress / Gremlin / Newport Question Update
« on: July 23, 2014, 02:30:28 PM »
I still don't know if the joint gave out or the rear-end locked suddenly. I doubt the latter because the wheels never grabbed. I suspect the problem was the joint. Upon inspection it had little to no lubricant in it. A dry needle bearing could have caused it to explode.

As of today the car has a new u-joint, new u-clamps and bolts, and is now running a 3.23 sure-grip instead of the 3.55 one. The sheared bolt and the unknown of the breakage led me to this decision. Never liked those gears anyway - gas mileage sucked and the motor always ran hot. I like the way it drove today. Not that much of a difference, but I have not had it on the freeway yet.

I also swapped the thermostat as well as drilled a 1/8" hole in the new one that is a 195* version. After driving a few miles the temp never went above 197. Prior it would hit 200+ at the end of a lap around the block, and that was with a 165* thermostat. Here's hoping!
