Question about 1987 Dodge Daytona

1 Answer

I bought a 87 dodge daytona shelby z with the 2.2l intercooled engine and what is supposed to be an A555 transmission but when i get the car home it has an A520 in it this transmission is for the non intercooled car that makes less hp. the previous owner said he replaced the tranny not changed it i have a witness my (gf) i asked him is the clutch and tranny all stock? and he said yes i know it will work but should i bring him to court because he knowingly lied and told me it was replaced with the stock transmission, this transmission is stock for another car and he admitted knowing that it was different after i bought it i have the texts to prove this.

Up to you.
Probably cost you more than just avoiding this guy, unless he is a trader and if so take him to the cleaners.

If I remember correctly the clutch is cable driven & you adjust it by pulling up on the clutch pedal quickly. I think there was a little mechanism on back of pedal arm, that would move slightly by doing this. Although it may be time for a new assy, it's worth a try.

SOURCE: How do I change the water pump on a 87 Dodge

The Haynes 1140 manual covers the job and will provide the specs for torque on all of these different bolts.

Basically, remove the ground cable, drain the cooling system (anti-freeze is toxic to animals & humans) remove the belts & get the accessories that are blocking it out of the way, specifically the a/c if equipped.along with it's bracket, the alternator & wiring. You will be removing a support bolt & 3 bolts that secure the water pump to the engine block where it is sealed with an "O" ring. You'll need to remove the pump tself which is just the upper portion, (look at your new pump) from that complete assembly you just removed. You do this by taking out all of the bolts & carefully prying it apart. You'll get a new gasket & need to use RTV sealant on this part when reassembling. Alll surfaces have to extremely smooth & clean for gaskets and "O" rings to work properly & should be carefully scraped or sprayed with gasket remover to make sure it is prepared for the new parts. If your car overheated it is a good idea to also replace the thermostat I gasket & to check all of your hoses. Hope this helps, good luck.

87 Dodge Daytona Shelby 2.2

My battery went dead. It was 5 yrs old it was time to change it. It also went dead. Bought a new altenator and installed it. OK now. Had a problem with the engine with the engine cutting out on the highway. Put some injettor cleaner in the tank and it took about 2-3 days and it`s fine now.
