    if truck run will slowly come up to travel speed your acellerato pump in carb most likely at fault

    this sounds like my problem too!! i have an 87 ram 150 w the slant 6... ive described it more as it feels like the engine is missing.... BUT i dont lose speed and here's what is the kicker...in park and neutral. it runs great.. the engine does. ill be going along in drive n it will be chugging n skipping/missing/etc.. ill drop it in neutral.... n it runs like a top!! as i park it, and hit the throttle in park...again it runs great!!! lastly, 2nd gear only does it about half as bad as drive does.. otherwise it starts fine, as well as idles!?!?! please help me!!!!!

Antifreeze leak in back of engine


Sounds like your right rear freeze plugs are probably leaking .. but first you need to make sure its not coming from up around the rear of the intake before pulling the transmission . this would be the best way to fix this problem .. thanks jerry holler if you need more.

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
