85 dodge ramcharger, replacement engine

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.

The engine manufacturer should be able to tell you. Generally, run what the engine is designed for unless you are tuned to run a different octane. Run whatever oil the manufacturer recommends. Most engines don't need "break in" oil like the old days, ,but then again, there should be documents pertaining to this information included with the remanufactured engine.
