35-40? That's where a LOT of U-joints kick in and vibe up the vehicle.

I'd check the joints in the rear drive shaft. Shucks, I'd just do them if you're not sure how old they are!

Post this in the 2nd Gen forum, where folks actually work on 2002 Dakotas, instead of the Gen1 Forum, where the 1987-1996 use a different temperature setting.

I'm sure they can be made to fit.

Do they bolt right in? I doubt that.

Might want to ask in the Gen2 forum, where folks would be more familiar with the 1998 than the Gen1 forum, 1987-1996.

Not just any, no.

The knuckle assembly (steering arm, caliper bracket, and spindle) change three or four times during the 1st generation; but look, car-part.com does list several spindles (which...

Do a pressure check on it; look especially at the bypass hose (intake to water pump) and the water pump weep hole specifically.

Also check and see if while it's under pressure for a while if any...

*blink*

Like any other bulb.

Remove knee guard under steering column.

Remove dash surround.

If automatic, carefully remove wire from steering column to PRNDL.

What 93 ragtop said.

Get it rebuilt, or rebuild it yourself.

That way you KNOW it's been done, and has good bands and frictions in it.

It's not a RE transmission.

The V6 Dodges got 42RHs 1988 (optional at end of model year) to 1995; the 1996 model year got the 42RE. OTOH, the 42/44s are direct swaps in and out for any particular...

With the current pricing on 4K capable cameras, I'd spend the dosh and get those.

You realize, with that coil and that upper control arm, you now need to take the lower and the spindle and get THEM powder coated (or painted), right? :)

Get it aligned.

NOW.

GET IT ALIGNED.

When properly aligned, the steering wheel will be centered.

(Is this a 2WD or 4WD truck?)

That's not the run to the ignition switch, I don't think. For one thing, THAT run is between the ignition switch and the PDC, and would not be over by the alternator.

You may have to trace it to...

First stop should be to the FAQ here; about 40% down there's a link to the factory service manual. The alternator wiring is in there.

See if you can find a R12 hose set for your manifold gauge then; that'll take care of it also.

It probably looks different because it's still the R12 valve, and you will probably need the R134a conversion adapter.

But yep, the filter is the high pressure fitting.

The cross references show BOTH styles used for a 1992; so it was possibly a production change during the year (dimpled steel vis o-ring).

So you may have to obtain both types; again, if that one's...

I won't say no danger; but if it starts, runs, and cures the code 27, it should be good.

If it doesn't start, or idles horribly, or doesn't run properly, swap back.

If the ARM itself is worn out, then car-part.com will be your friend. Find someone...
