Ramcharger, Trailduster & Power Wagon Grrrr!! Tough Trucks! The Dodge Ramcharger and Plymouth Trailduster were full size SUV's that had good looks and brute strength. The Dodge Power Wagon was comparable to them in toughness, but came in pickup truck form only.

Not sure what it might be, but here's a GREAT 727 torqueflite diagnosis tool, that might be a first step, before a total breakdown & rebuild!

p.s. - yeah, it's for a Maxwedge old hotrod site, but the 727 is STILL a 727!
