My first point to check would be the fusible link for it. Check the wiring diagram in the shop manual and its location in your year/model/VIN and check it. Suspect it was fried by inadvertently arcing at alternator out put lug when servicing alternator.
FULLY CHARGE BATTERY BEFORE USING.If you dont you will burn out the alt. within minutes.
Does the new alt have all the same connections as old one?
After charging bat and installing new alt. typical battery load test and alt. output test should tell if there may be other problems.
Hello travis...The second generation Rams used Cummins part #3910739 a double row angular seated sealed bearing for the fan hub. Cummins is proud of it, indicitive of it's price. If you can remove your old bearing from the outer race there will be a part number on it. Your local bearing supply house can cross it over.
Do not try to install the bearing with something that could side load the bearing such as a hammer and drift, the result will be premature failure. Recommend useing a shop press to install new bearing.
Good luck...i hope this helps.
Why not eBay? you may be able to find a "lightly" used harness from an appropriate dodge or Chrysler product that uses your engines?
Try for a Repair manual or electrical repair segment for an appropriate Chrysler product with your engine.
The 318 was an engine fitted to all manner of vehicles dating back for quite a few years.A torqueflite sounds right although your trans woulld be different than sedan etc due to having a trransfer case to have to run.It may be easier to drop it off at auto trans specialist who can recondition the original one.At least it would save hassles from compatibility issues etc.For engine parts look under sedans that used the same engine.Asalvage yard would be a good place to look for the numbers you need .Are there no web sites that deal with your type of truck?4x4 clubs etc
Just wanted to let you all know that I got the truck fixed, actually played around with a couple things, and hit the starter relay, and after havi the battery charging with another car, it did start. I went down and talked to my mechanic today, and we discussed a few things, and I am going to take the truck down to my mechanic, and have him charge the battery for a few hours, and then see if its the battery, alternator, voltage regulator, or the starter relay. Thanks for asking about it.
