  1. Diesel Talk
    I've been contemplating this project for years and I finally have kicked it off. I bought a fully running RC so I can drive it until I'm ready for the swap. I'd like to get your input on a good doner truck model/year. I am already sold that a 6bt Cummins is the engine to get. I'd like the...
  2. Vehicle Help
    Hello all, I have a heavily modified 1979 W150, 97 360 magnum engine up to a NP435 (using a 78 bell housing). I relocated the z bar mount from the body pan to the frame to fix a binding issue, when I take off in 2nd or decelerate in any gear the truck shakes like something fierce, people...

    Hey peeps, just a few questions I hope are quick. 1. I have a stock RC, 360, carb, auto. I was looking around but can't find one; is there a data table or something here that would tell me which model transmission was standard on this truck? If not, can someone with the table hard-wired...
  7. Vehicle Help
    Hi all, I recently bought a 87 Ramcharger for 1000 bucks. And I did all the fluid changes ( rear diff, tranny, oil brakes etc.) And finally took it for a spin, and I only feel one shift which I assume is 2nd at around 25mph (no tach) but I do not feel a 3rd gear shift?? Engine sounds good and...
