    ? about dodge ram 2500 v-10

    Head gaskets were not a problem. some of the 94's had a recall for intake gaskets that would get sucked in and there were some of the early year trucks that had mystery coolant loss that was caused by heads cracking and venting the steam inside the valve cover then getting drawn in and burned...

    Just as a note, brake clean will not work on internal engine cleaning for all purposes. If the engine has been bored the cylinders will only come clean using soap and water, brake clean will not work properly.

    Who prepped your motor? That thing had a pile of metal go through it. Remember that the rings were being lubricated by that metallic oil as well.

    Never put used rings back into an engine you want to be sealing properly. If the pistons come out, deglaze(hone) the cylinder walls and re-ring it.

    I still say a cam can't be 180º out. Throw that gear drive in the garbage and learn something from this. How did you check the valves?? If they hit the pistons you may as well change them now cause there going to drop into the motor when she gets some RPM.

    When you are having these kind of problems you are better off having someone who knows stop by before things get too far. :)

    Shes alive an shes stayin alive!!

    Any of the valves that hit pistons are junk. Do not try and re-use these. You also need to have a valve job done now. Did you install a gear drive, or are you talking about a timing chain and gears. If it was the timing chain it does not matter if it is dot to dot or both dots on top. the...

    Shes alive an shes stayin alive!!

    Enlighten me. How do you install a cam 180º out. The crank gear must have the dot on top. The cam gear can have the dot on top or at bottom, the only difference this will make is firing on #1 or #6. Please tell us how this happened. :?:

    PULLEYS

    Do you have chrome pulleys? They are terrible for this. Can you go to a larger alternator pulley like from a truck or an older car with A/C as they are larger diameter and will slow belt speeds down.

    Why not borrow one from under the hood of the 67 parked right beside your car? That would make the most sense. I would go with the Mopar electronic kit when you can afford it(comes with new resistor)

    I still think it's ignition/timing prob. You need someone who knows Dodges to come over and give it another look. You may be missing something without knowing it.

    If the intake valve is stuck open it will, or if the exhaust valve is not opening it will cause you grief. How much lift do you have??? Did a valve kiss a piston or did you damage it in assembly? never mind, must be an exhaust valve not opeing or you wouldn't have 120 psi compression.

    Shes alive an shes stayin alive!!

    318 is probably at 8.4:1 compression ratio. 120psi in all cylinders is fine. Cannot install cam 180º out.

    Have you pulled the dist and moved it 180º since you put it together originally? If you haven't you are 180º out.:)

    Shes alive an shes stayin alive!!

    I still think you are after a timing issue, re-check your points as well. Dot to dot is firing on #6 cyl. dot on top to dot on top is firing on #1. You could be kicking back through the carb because dist is 180º out or you have a plug wire misrouted. I would not tear the engine down again...

    Shes alive an shes stayin alive!!

    You need to bring it up on compression stoke TDC to verify your dist position. #1 andf #6 cyl are at TDC compression 180º apart. Start over with the dist position and go back through the firing order making sure you are placing the wires according to dist rotation. Firing order is...
