87 dodge ram charger 318 alternator installation.

I disconnected my alternator and went to the local parts house to buy a new one but when i put the new one back on i forgot which wire goes where. I have it all hooked up except for the green wire and the red wire, I figured the red wire would be the positive wire but the back of the alternator says fld by both terminals. which wire goes where? please help me i have to go to school tomorrow morning and thats my ride.

Case groung= BLACK
Battery Positive = RED
Field wires = one green, one blue

They have been this way since 1970

    That is fine, both are field wires. It does not matter which one goes where, the alternator is not polarity sensitive for the field wires.

My 1991 Dodge ram 1500 ,318 motor alternator is new. Everything grounded Good. But not charging battery. And when I jumpstart it take the jumpin cables off test the battery and alternator with voltage...


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.

Where is the heater core located on a 1997 dodge ram 1500 5.2 318


This is to give you an idea where it's at (behind the dash) and what you would have to do to remove and replace it:

Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the battery negative cable.
  2. Remove the instrument panel from the vehicle.
  3. If equipped with air conditioning, recover the refrigerant.
  4. Disconnect the liquid line refrigerant line fitting from the evaporator inlet tube.
  5. Ram: remove the accumulator.
  6. Dakota, Durango: disconnect the accumulator inlet tube.
  7. Drain the cooling system.
  8. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes.
  9. Ram: remove the powertrain control module from the dash panel. Disconnecting wiring is not necessary.
  10. Remove the four nuts from the heater–A/C mounting studs on the engine compartment side of the dash panel.
  11. Remove the nut(s) that secure(s) the heater–A/C housing mounting brace to the stud(s) on the passenger compartment side of the dash board.
  12. Pull the housing rearward far enough for the mounting studs and evaporator condensate drain tube to clear the dash panel holes.
  13. Remove the housing from the vehicle.
  14. Lift the heater core out of the housing.
  15. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Need part # for fan bearing assembly on 2003 ram cummins 3/4 ton. Bearing went out. Also is this a press in bearing?


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.

Dodge 318 wiring diagrams


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.

1983 dodge power ram 150 custom pickup truck


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

Having Trouble Keeping Battery Charged...


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.
Sincerely,
Jeanine aka MrsJeanine
