Is it easier to do away with the stock Fuel injection?
Well there is always a carburetor or some of the new aftermarket TBI systems, but I'd much rather keep the OEM fuel injection, perhaps mounted up on a M1 intake manifold. I figure keeping as much of the 1994 donor truck as possible would make troubleshooting easier if the need arose. The biggest issue I have at this point is the same thing you guys have going if you want to keep EFI on a Magnum swap, sorting out exactly what is needed to manage the engine and transmission and deleting all the unnecessary circuits from the stock wire harness. -Joe
Just go carb and toss all that efi stuff
Meh, I've had my share of carbureted stuff over the years. EFI means there is no choke to mess with and no adjustments needed for elevation changes. Economy is better, as are cold starts. I installed a Carter AFB on my 1978 Power Wagon as an upgrade over the stock two barrel. I ran that set-up for nearly 100k miles before I sold that truck. I had a Holley 3310 that I dialed in to run on the 454 I built for my wife's truck. With tuning and gearing, it would pull down 12 mpg all day long and towed just as well as our Cummins. I've done the carb thing to my heart's content. -Joe

Anyone kno which dipstick I should use for a 5.2 magnum swap with an LA 360 oil pan?
Just a regular LA dipstick
Gabe, I had a question regarding the power steering bracket for the serpentine belt. I pulled a 5.9 Magnum out of a 99 Dodge RAM 1500. It has all the accessories and stuff. So what your'e saying is that the Van Magnums have the power steering mounted lower due to the bracket? So, here are my questions: Can I just swap the power steering bracket only or do I need the rest of the accessory brackets?Are the 5.2 and 5.9 brackets the same?Have a picture of the difference between a truck and van bracket?Thanks!
What from the origioor wiring harness would you need if you ho carbed
If you’re going carb’d you won’t use any of the magnum harness. I just used the original harness from my 318 Duster. I did add Hei ignition though.
This is awesome info! Currently wrapping up my 72' Demon's 360 Magnum. Been using this to guide me along. Very helpful Thank you
Hi Kristi, Your project looks really nice on the picture. I just plan to swap the engine of my 66 valiant convertible and will go with the 360 Magnum. I will also change back to the V-Belt and would like to know if you have reused your LA timing cover and the water pump. Best regards from Germany, Oliver
ProVAL have you finished your engine? I sourced a timing cover from a 71 small block so the timing marks are on the right. And I used my original water pump and V-belt pulley. I used a block off plate on the timing cover and going with an electric fuel pump. .
Wow, you covered the magnum swap article with so much information. I am going to have to study all of the material for weeks to come. You could write an article for any automotive magazine.
Hello I’ve read through most of this article and I’m just curious. I have a running and driving 5.9 Durango I’m using for everything I need to do the swap. Can I just drop the motor into my 74 duster and bolt up a 5speed and use the factory Durango timing cover setup? I will be using factory efi and computer. Just making a nice reliable “stockish” car that I will most likely daily. I’ll throw in a little fact that the car has been with my family since 1975 bran new
