Hey all, I need a little help with my engine, trying to get the finishing touches done before she's road ready. I couldn't find anything online or in the service manual. I've need to run the vacuum line to the advance on the distributor. I found to cut off lines, one one the intake manifold and one on the carb. I circled both in the picture. Which one does it go to, and what is the other for? Also, what is that unit mounted on the exhaust manifold? It does appear to have a cut off wire, and on the rear there is an arm that moves. I wanted to know what I was dealing with before I removed it and cleaned it up. I've got a lot of pictures here of the project, please take a look. I'm really excited to get this 'ol pickup on the road. Been the funnest project I've done and I'm really happy with how it's going, lots' more to come. https://photos.app.goo.gl/sWeEmPHujXdteZpt9 Also, if there's any suggestions with etiquette for the forum, please let me know.
So, yet another question!!! this truck has new oil in it brand new almost! never even ran engine on the oil. and the engine had no water in it (in the cooling system) so my oil is milky white like it has water in it. I just think its a bad head gasket seal. but heres my main problem i know they dont push a lot of oil pressure and ive never exactly got the engine to run but it has oil in it like i said but even after the hours ive spent cranking it over there seems to be absolutely no oil in the oil filter how is that possible?? does the engine only push oil to it if its warmed up? what can you tell me about this issue because im days from tuning my engine and id hate to seize the engine!!! please help!! again i know nothing about how this oil system works!!! my filter was replaced about 2 years ago doesnt seem like oil has ever touched it??
Hi everyone Im new to this forum. Im 17 and have been building my dodge truck since I was 12, ive done all the work myself and payed for it. Its been a dream working on it and i now own two of them (parts truck and original) but heres my problem my shop manual has one firing order, that when i turn the engine over knowing theres spark (ive rebuilt carb. new spark plugs, etc shes all new.) it does nothing once in a while like for a half hour of cranking it pops very slightly but wont start. so i test the spark .25 inch gab of spark then i try the firing order at 153624 and all i get is a ton of back firing and popping and stuff it ran once about 2 years ago and i havent changed a thing it didnt run to well and everything is right ive checked it a good 40 times. it fires but like its timing is off and so i adjust it and get nothing.... ive been stalled for 2 years because it wont come to life.. and i need help this truck is perfect all except it doesnt run. i need some help from people who actually have worked with this specific engine. 218ci l6 thank you for any help or tips you can give me.
