There is a bushing in the block under the distributer that wears out, you have to take dist cap off [assuming you have the stock dist with no vac advance] if you can turn the rotor one way then the other way and it travel more than 1/16 of an inch the the bush is worn out. remove dist drive gear with some needle nose pliers in the slot check gear teeth on it and replace gear if any wear noted. check cam gear with flashlight if teeth worn down replace cam shaft [very rare cams bad,only seen that once]there is a speciall procedure to put it back together so get a manuel or ask the dealer to print you off a copy when you buy the parts [block bushing/dist gear]
also the plug wires on on i forgot the cyl numbers but they are the two rear ones on the right side [in U.S. pass side] they must be rerouted so they do not run near each other the forward wire should be routed straight up and forward og the tab on the valve cover that holds wire loom.the coil wire needs to be completly seperated from the loom and ran olong the joint were the intake meets the head [under hoses wires etc.] them looped down at back of manifold and into cap.
the point is to prevent cross fire wich is real common on the v6 and 8.

What is the gear ratio on a 1991 dodge dakota 4x2. V8 319


The standard gear ratio for a '91 Dakota with the 318 V-8 was the 3.55 ring and pinon. The 3.90 or the 3.21, or the 2.76 could be ordered as an option. However the most of the Dakotas, either the V-6 or the V-8 were ordered with the 3.55 non-locking rear axles. Also your truck may have had either the 7.25" rear end, having a differential cover that is shaped ( 8 sides) like a "stop sign". Most likely will have the 8.25" rear end, having a "more rounded" differential cover. With your truck being a 318 V-8 the 8.25" rear end was more common. Hope that helps.

You didnt mention if the check engine light is on, make sure there are no bare or damaged wires anywhere in the electrical system, also make sure the ground wire on the back of the engine to the body is connected. if that is all ok then its the hall effect sensor in the distributor. Simple fix about 30 minutes.
Good luck dont forget to rate.
