Dodge raider engine removal

My 1989 Raider blew the engine. I found a used 1989 Raider engine. I want to pull the tranny at the same time as the engine. Is this feasible? What kind of problems will I encounter?

It is best to remove the engine /tranny as a unit. Remove all things that will not allow the engine to move forward and up such as radiator. Undo the manifolds at the heads. Undo all electrical connections and use masking tape to number the connectors so that you know where each one is connected. Get a good engine hoist and use a load shifting lifter bar ( a tool that has a hook point that is adjusted by a threaded bar ) so that as you can adjust the center of gravity of the unit on the hook. As you come forward you can alter the lift point so that the tranny drops to the rear allowing you to lift the unit at an angle to get it up and over the front bar of the body Remember to drain all oils before you start and it won't be half as messy. Remove the bonnet as well for more room

SOURCE: 1989 Dodge Raider timing chain worn out

I doubt it is the timing chain. More than likely it is the valves themselves, the seats wear out, and the lifters wear, so eventually the lifters don't pump up as full as they should, so it causes a gap between it and the valve, so it slaps the valve, also the seats wear, so the valve is kinda loose, so that causes a gap between it and the rocker shaft, so you get another slap. If the chain wore out enough to be hitting the block or front cover, you would be having timing issues because it would have to be pretty loose. You may also have a failing oil pump, so it is not suppling the right pressure, which is why you hear it at idle, because under load the pressure goes up and as I said it pumps up the lifter. This guy is a joke if he told you just to drive it till it blows, which would cause significant damage, Then you have to buy a what? use motor for $600 that is no better off than what you got? Then pay someone like this idiot $500 to install it? Right now you could probably rebuild the engine for about $600, and have a brand new fresh motor for your truck. The chain is not too difficult, you can do it in the car, but would be much easier out of it. The head doesn't have to be removed to do it, but you do have to take off the timing cover, which can be a pain, and possibly the water pump, all the engine pulleys, alternator, etc. So thats why I suggested pulling the motor. And, when it is pulled, it would be a great time to freshin it up with new pistons, rings, bearings, have the block done and rebuild the head.

Replace the belt and take a compression test, unless you want to pull the valve covers and ck for bent valves. The dealer may be able to tell you more . At this point it makes no difference. If it's O interference you lucked out. If not, you hsve to fix it anyway. If it's a belt it more than likely o interference. Belt breakage is anticipated in design.

SOURCE: where is the base timing ground on 1989 dodge

Looking at my manual for the Montero 3.0 V6 it would appear the ground is near the windshield wiper motor. The maunal shows a "ignition timing adjusting connector" right under the motor; the electric connector on the left side of the unit is to be grounded out. If you like I have a manual I could scan for you. Email address please.
I hope this mas assited you,
Tom

I have purchased new clutch for my 1989 Dodge Raider(2.6l engine)


Grretings!
The easiest method is to remove the transmission and transfer case in order to facilitate R&R of the clutch.

Your quoted labour of 5.2 hrs is reasonable, but if you are a novice, expect 8-10 hrs for your repair.

Have fun!
Cheers, Jay
