Actually I bought the truck used with a bad motor. Went to a salvage yard and purchased a motor that supposedly was out of an 01 Ram 1500 with only 72k miles. However none of the parts oil pan, pump, pickup screen seem to match an 01. This in itself wouldnt be a big deal but that engine was bad too. I am trying to prove breach of contract for lying on the age and mileage to get my refund since normally salvage yards do not give refunds.
Would anyone know if a block made in 98 as in the one above would have been used in 01 or if dodge generally makes only enough for the production year
there was a book i bought to help me build my bbc, in it told you how to look up all that info, go to a bookstore and look for a book on rebuilding or blueprinting a dodge engine that should give you what you need. then again call the dealership they should be able to help you with that.
01 Ram - V10 - Auto - 4x4, Headers, took the halo's out and put the factory lights back in and LED's on the rear, Many thanks to Hemifever, brought life back into my truck
Man they are bound to have some kind of record considering they store all of our vin numbers all the way back to the mid to early 80's so i dont see why they wouldnt have the information on file. if anything they could look up the engine and find the vin number then look up truck from the vin number atleast.
