r there any dodge truck guys on this site
I'm a " Dodge truck guy" and general mopar enthusiast.I have just started work on a '56 Dodge pickup and am gathering info and ideas on engine mounting details, suspension "stuff" etc. Maybe we can swap info at some time.
I LOVE MOPAR!!! I HAVE A 85 SHORTBOX 2WD IM GOT A 318 WITH A 3 SPEED AUTO AM ALSO SWAPING THE FRONT CLIP,HOOD AND GRILL FROM A 73 D100 ITS GOING SLOW BUT STEADY
it fit with little mod. it looks sweet 85 ram with a 73 grill and hood and the round headlights instead of square is more hotrod
Been building a 57 P/U for the last ten years. Finally got it painted last year, all I lack is the interior and bed. It's got police dippy IFS,Dual quad healthy 360, Built 727,4:11 8.75, tilt col and a ton of labor. Fun to drive too. Need help holler.
What do ya need help with dodge?
maybe he doesnt need help anymore?
I have recently purchased a 1978 D100 (a limey green metallic color) sweptline standard or longbed, (not sure which) with factory air, auto and a big block 400. I am looking forward to restoring this to its former glory with some additional touches such as an airbag setup and flipscreen navigation etc.
Sounds like a great project.. keep us updated
hey man I'm in the same boat. i just purchased a 1977 d 100 shortbed but it only has a 318 in it but looking to restore. Do you have any good websites?
My dad gave me an 86 Dodge W150 4x4. It has factory air, ps, pw, 318, auto trans. I've been looking for parts for it online.....but it seems like nobody has anything for dodge before 1994!!! Ugh!! I really need an axle shaft for the left front..dad broke it.
Welcome Pitman66 to the Dodge forums, I hope you find the axle shaft you are looking for to repair your ride.
My '65's steering has gotten worse over the years. I've figured out adjusting my steering box, then rebuilt my front end, with a kit from pst, (new kingpins), but its still worse than it should be. I suspect the link between pitman arm and front end, (driverside, about 12" long)(not sure what this is called)( also, by pitman arm, i mean arm attatched to steering box, i think thats right). Any comments/ suggestions? Late model replacement/ same size?, how to rebuild?, other ideas. thanks.
I am working on a 56 Dodge pickup also. So far I have stripped it down and painted the frame and suspension, replaced the engine with a built 318, replaced the steering box and hooked it to a Chevy van tilt column. I built a custom dash with full instrumentation and rewired the entire truck. I am in the process of painting it, one part at a time. The biggest issue so far is that I cannot get the rear brake drums off. Any suggestions?Jack
Notice how few Dodge Trucks they have in their magazine i wonder why?I'm fixing up a 49 B2 and i can't find parts for it. Anyone have any ideas??
