Question about Plymouth Cars & Trucks

Open Question

While changing the timing cover gasket on my 1981 plymouth trailduster I removed the timing gauge ,it's just a thin piece of tin with the timeing #s on it with one mounting hole and a slot. but I'm having a real problem getting it to mount up to the timeing cover, I may have installed one of the brackets wrong. I need an exploded veiw of the front of the engine including the bracket mounting diagram. the engine is a 318 2b with a/c and p/s.

I have a 90 plymouth laser I just replaced the head the head gasket and head bolts I am now getting a high oil pressure reading at dash guage and no oil is getting to the top end and lots of rocker no


Good oil pressure, but no oil on top of engine could be a blockage in the oil passages somewhere. You might try some very thin oil, run it a few minutes to see if you can get oil to top of engine. Other than that, I don't know, maybe somebody knows of a solvent or something that may be put in the crankcase, like Marvel mystery oil, or a Lucas product, something might work. Hope you find the problem, Jim.
