I have a 1996 dodge pickup and dont know how to tell what shift kit i need to buy for it. it has a 318 and is two wheel drive. any assistance would be greatly appreciated. the number on the casing is U64-2. and the number on a tag on the transmission is 151 120248 2 A3 83. Dont know if those numbers will help or not but that is all i have found so far.

Need to know what transfer case it has. Most t-cases have synchronized gearing...meaning shift on the fly. A quick test is drive at less than 5 mph, and shift, no gear clash means you have synchros. ****This is only from 2wd to 4 high. 4 low you MUST be stopped(doesn't matter what gear its in).****
I have an identical truck, 1991 Ram W150 with a 318 4speed bull low. They're called a bull low (bo low, granny four speed, farmers 4-spd) because theyre really only built for towing heavy loads, theyre a farm tractor transmission. You should never use first unless your towing a load, start in 2nd. I dont rev it too high when I shift mine. Best tranny for offroading by far, it really delivers the torque to crawl up tricky paths.
Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.
You need to get your tranny rebuilt. The motor that is already in your truck is set up for that Tranny so i wouldnt change it at all as it would cost alot more then you need to spend to do it. . I also would go to Mr.Transmission as they do great work on trannys.
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
