Trace the spark plug wires to the distributor; it will be at the back of the engine block, in a cramped space.
Disconnect the negative battery cable to the distributor and unhook the air cleaner tube. Unscrew or unhook the clamps holding the distributor cap in place, and unscrew the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor connector with a screwdriver.
Matchmark the distributor housing and the rotor for later realignment, as well as the distributor housing and the intake manifold. Unbolt the holding clamp and remove the distributor.
Set the engine at Top Dead Center (TDC) mark of the No. 1 cylinder compression stroke with a socket with breaker bar (long-handled ratchet).
Install the Ram distributor, replace the clamp and lightly tighten the bolt. The distributor part number is A1303801 from Parts Train, but numbers differ from different manufacturers. Order using the model, year and engine size.
Turn the distributor in its seating so the rotor lines up with the No. 1 cylinder mark on the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor. Bolt the clamp bolt to 200 foot pounds (22.5 Nm).
Reattach the CMP sensor connector and use the screws or clamps to replace the distributor cap. Connect the air cleaner tube and the negative battery cable
where exactly is the power lost at ? and what point do you have power to ? you won't get any power to ignition if coil is bad ? loose or bad connection to computer ? crank position sensor bad , I need more specific's to help you more.
First a little more clarification would be helpful in, Why do you think the cable needs replaced? If the cable is corroded at terminal connection a new connection fitting is much more simpler than cable replacement. Nonetheless, remove the negative battery cable first, then the positive. (1)Clean the corroded area's with baking soda and water mixture (you should wear eye and hand protection- battery acid will eat through clothing in a matter of minutes).Scrub gently with nylon brush -using a wire brush can cause sparks and may cause a fire from hydrogen gas escaping form battery. Flush with clean water and your ready to start the next process. (2)Assuming you will adding a new terminal connection fitting - cut off bad fitting with wire cutters or hack saw, skin back wire about ONE inch and install new cable fitting.(3) install / reconnect battery. (4) Your cars computer will be cleared of all learned shifting patterns and other feedback information. It will revert back to factory preprogrammed settings. Average cost of replacement cable clamp $3.50. New cable cost to starter +$30.00
WARNING: DISCONNECT NEGATIVE CABLE FROM BATTERY
BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY OUTPUT WIRE (B+ WIRE) FROM GENERATOR. FAILURE TO DO SO
CAN RESULT IN INJURY OR DAMAGE TO ELECTRICAL SYSTEM .
Disconnect negative battery
cable at battery.
Diesel Engines: Disconnect both negative battery cables at both batteries.
Remove generator drive belt.
Remove generator pivot and mounting bolts/nut. The diesel engine uses a bolt
at top mounting and a bolt/nut at lower mounting. Position generator for access
to wire connectors.
Remove nuts from harness holddown, battery
terminal, ground terminal and 2 field terminals. Remove wire connectors. A
typical generator wiring harness is shown in. Wiring harness routing as shown
may be slightly different depending on vehicle model and/or engine.
Remove generator from vehicle.
Position generator to engine and install wiring to rear of generator.
Tighten all wiring fasteners as follows:
Install generator mounting fasteners and tighten as follows:
Generator mounting bolt-All gas powered engines-41 N.m (30 ft. lbs.)
Generator pivot bolt/nut-All gas powered engines-41 N.m (30 ft. lbs.)
Generator mounting bolt-Diesel powered engines-54 N.m (40 ft. lbs.)
Generator pivot bolt/nut-Diesel powered engines-54 N.m (40 ft. lbs.)
Never force a belt over a pulley rim using a screwdriver. The synthetic
fiber of the belt can be damaged.
When installing a serpentine accessory drive belt, the belt MUST be routed
correctly. The water pump will be rotating in the wrong direction if the belt is
installed incorrectly, causing the engine to overheat.
UNPLUG THE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE, JACK UP THE CAR, THE STARTER IS UNDER THE CAR ON THE SIDE OF ENGINE, LOSSEN THE BOLTS AND WIRES,REPLACE NEW STARTER, WIRES FIRST,THEN BOLT DOWN THE STARTER,RE CONNECT THE BATTERY AND IF OK THEN GET CAR OFF THE JACKS ,DONE.
