-If it has Distributor Cap and Rotor check them and their contact point should not be rusty, cut/worn. Rotate Distributor assly for getting a better synchronization/timing.
- check you have fuel pressure at fuel rail.
- is the fuel fresh. Spray some starting fluid in the air intake. If it starts up then problem is with fuel.

Doesn't sound like the transmission. Your cable is probably stretched out and needs to be replaced. Yes, you can take out the cluster in less than 20 minutes

if it starts OK when warm , but not when cold , I would say it is the temperature sensor, sometimes on the intake manifold, engine block, or even the radiator, but don't confuse it with the fan sensor on the rad.

get yourself a tester to see if you are getting power to the light socket, have someone push on the brake petal and use the tester to check for power. If no power, you have a broken wire somewhere between the rear lights and dash [fuse panel] check for corrosion in bulb socket. try to find the wire along the frame to the rear lights for any breaks in the insulation. electrical is one of the hardest problems to solve, good luck.

Pull it loose from the speedometer end, pull the cable out all the way. Spray a little white lithium grease into the housing. Then as you are puting the cable back put a little here and there on it.

I don't know about 225 six,but a 5.2 318 v8 ,and 5.9 360v8, and some other older modle Dodges, as well as some GM engines, have a ROD that rides on the camshaft
this rod needs to be pushed up into block out of the way, and held there (I usually use greese to hold the rod in place )
then the fule pump can be installed , if the rod isn't above the pump lever, the pump will not only not work, but can also become damaged
The rod works like a push rod on the pump lever
hope this helps

Did it pop out of position or what? Or was this after you replaced the clutch or what?

Well on clutch forks ive seen. There is a rounded stud sticking out and goes into a rounded
spot on the that the fork, and the makes the fork pivot.

And theres a spring that snaps the throwout bearing onto the fork. Could either be that
the spring broke, or the fork is not aligned on the rounded stud and has slipped down.

I think the spring broke and made the fork drop down, because the spring holds the bearing
onto the fork and the fork could not have dropped down without the spring either breaking
on popping off. There is usually a rubber boot that covers the place where the fork goes
into the transmission. Pull the boot off and look through the holes where the boot goes.
If somrhing has come off or broken you will be able to tell.

sounds like you have a fouled idle air control valve . I know on the d 150 vans it is located on top at the rear of the engine . Un-plug the wire connector on the iac valve and spray the control valve with brake kleen till it is clean , shake the excess brake kleen out and re-install....it should run like new .

How old are the spark plugs, cap and rotor?? If over 2 years i would replace them. Also you may want to test and replace the ignition module. Sounds like it breaks down due to heat when the engine is warm and needs to cool down before starting again.
