Question about 1987 Dodge Ram 50

1 Answer

1987 Dodge Ram 50 2.0 L engine. My main timing belt was stripped. I replaced it and the secondary belt at the same time. When turning the crankshaft clockwise, the distributor rotor does not move. I have not yet installed the pulleys yet and was unable to turn the crankshaft very far. Does the crankshaft need to turn farther to turn the distributor? or is it another problem?

Yes, the crank will spin a few times to each rotation of the rotor. If you have the timing belt on, you should be able to crank the engine with the starter. Just make sure you take the spark wire off the coil first so it wont start. Also make sure you lined up the marks on the crank and cam sprockets or you may have serious timing issues.
The engine is fairly hard to turn over with normal length socket wrenches. I use a breaker bar.

1987 dodge ram 50 pickup 4 cyl engine. Put in new battery with 630 CCA and won't turn it over. How big of battery would we need?


That battery is big enough. I would look at the starter. try hitting the starter with a hammer,pipe or steel rod. Hit the starter not the solenoid. Then try starting it. if it starts turning better or starts the engine, replace the starter. If that doesn't work let me know and we can go from there.

Where is the fuel pump on a 87 dodge ram 50 Need to know where the fuel pump is located on my 87 dodge ram 50 2.6 so it can be replaced


For 1987 Dodge Truck RAM 50 4WD 2.6L 2BL 4cyl...

The mechanical fuel pump is mounted on the side of the head, centered between the runners of the intake manifold. The intake manifold does not require removal, but access can be tricky. A selection of socket extensions, swivels and open end wrenches can be helpful.

I have a 1987 Dodge Ram 50 sport 2.6 litre the head gasket is blown how do i get the timing chain off to replace the gasket


You have to remove the oil pan - harmonic balancer - timing cover to replace timing chain... to replace cylinder head gasket and not the chain -- you need an assistant to hold the camshaft gear with chain on it. Suspending it with wire to keep the chain from moving the timing (do not let the chain relax as it will come off the crankshaft gear and change the timing)

I have a 1984 dodge ram pick up with the mitsubishi motor and i was woindering if the timeing was belt or chain


1984 years came with the 2.0L, 2.6L gasoline and 2.3 diesel engines.

It's most likely a timing belt, but read further for more info. Recommended to be replaced at 60,000 miles (96,000 km) on gasoline engines and on diesel engines at 50,000 miles (80,000 km).

The 2.0 L Engine have two timing belts. One connects the crankshaft and camshaft, the second one drives the right silent shaft.

The 2.6L engine has a timing chain and a silent shaft chain.

Please check to see which particular engine you have and refer to the above for your answer.
