some times when the dimmer switch on the floor goes bad the headlights will cut out. Try replacing the dimmer switch and the headlights should come back on. My 84 dodge had that exact problem.

As long as it is only the switch that is corroded the answer would be yes. Try bypassing the switch and see if the lights work. If they do then you have your answer.

You should have a belt routing decal in the engine bay somewhere or under the hood. If the belts are on now and lined up, adjust as needed. If they won't adjust anymore replace with 1 inch shorter belts. The power steering and the air pump usually take seperate belts. The air pump don't take much to power, they usually run off the third groove on the water pump. A/C, Alt. and PS will all run around the crank. Hope this helps some, if not you might could find a Haynes repair manual at the parts store.

What I would do is type in 1984 dodge ram steering cloumn and hit search.The most common hits will be e-bay and probably kijiji or craigslist. You could also call your local salvage yard. Most of them are on a cross country intranet with other yards and could find one that way.

remove #1 spark plug, then have someone bump the starter while you hold your finger over the plug hole, Bring #1 cylinder up to T.D.C. (Top Dead Center) on firing stroke you will feel a rush of air push your finger off of the plug hole, check that the mark(or groove) that is cut into harmonic balancer,(what crank shaft pully is mounted to) is lined up with timming indicator on timming chain cover, check to see that rotor button is pointing at #1 on cap.
this should get you back to where you need to be if distributor was removed and engine was turned or moved.
then look at lable under hood if it is still there , if not check service manual for degree either before, or after T.D.C.
I hope this will answer your question

You will need to take the cowl off and replace all of the bushings. Most auto parts stores will have them in stock.

How to save money buying parts to fix a problem

If you don't have at least a working knowledge of the auto in question,
find someone you trust that does.
If you do, start with the cheapest,and most obvious solution first.
such as cleaning battery cable ends when charging, or starting problems occur.
If that doesn't solve the problem,then move on to the next solution, such as checking battery,altenator,ect with the correct equipment
I hope this was helpfull !
