If it is an OBD1 engine, you will have to swap all the sensors off the 318 onto the older engine. The older setup uses two temp sensors, the newer one only one. Oil pressure sensor is different....

My '97 did exactly that, all the "experts" said it needed a rebuild. Eventually the second gear band link fell out from the band needing adjustment and screwed the transmission. Tighten those bands!...

oil light/dial wonky

My '95 Ram oil pressure gauge and idiot light are being weird. The light comes on any old time, even with the guage reading halfway up. Then the needle will go to zero, but the light may or may not...

They connected up fine. Just wondering if the pump pressures are the same. Guess I'll just fire it up and see how it runs.

Cool! I have been considering a dual setup with the bodies side-by-side so as not to have to chop in to the runners. Your way shows a lot more,er, cojones! I'll be watching to see how it works out.

DO NOT drive that truck until you find what is stripped! It has nothing to do with the hydraulics, it is a mechanical defect that will kill you and whoever you run over or in to.

If your battery voltage is low, they sometimes will do that. Get the alternator working first, it is probably all that's wrong.

Adjust the second gear band. My 98 Ram did that for a while until the link on the band fell into the pan, screwed the whole thing.

Those holes are there to let the dirt and water out, plugging them will make it rust quicker.

Trans swap?

My '97 Ram 360 2WD blew the forward band. I acquired a rolled '98 Jeep 318. Will the OD unit off my 2WD 46RE bolt to the 4WD trans without disassembling the main trans? It's a rebuilt unit, I would...

The engine will drop right in. Be sure to use the flex plate that goes with the engine, 360 is balanced different. Might have to swap the computer too, to get the 360 to run right, but maybe not.

It's a 46RE. The '95 has a 46RH, and it seems to be the better unit. Too bad they only made them one year. I have a spare that's going in a '79 Magnum.
