Here she is. My dodge.

Pulled the engine due to bad lifters and an unknown knocking noise.


Buying an 1985 Dodge Ram 1/2 ton with a rebuilt 1976 318 that has a mild cam, bored, aftermarket heads and a 4bbl with a little over 25,000 miles on it. Goin' to put the engine in my truck and fix my old engine. Probably put the old one in the 85' and sell it to make my money back. Figured someone on here might want to see pics. ;D

Welcome! You have a nice truck.
This post really belongs in the "Trucks" section, where people post pictures of their trucks and update us on their progress and adventures.
Good luck.

Got the engine in! Now only problem is when I'm not giving it the gas is wants to rumble and die.
Thinking maybe it needs a fuel pump. It's got a new filter.

If it's got a cam, you might try advancing the timing. Just a though before you start spending money on parts.
