SOURCE: engine swap

I just put a 96 360 magnum in my 97 dodge 4x4 that had a 318 in it. Yes it does fit. I noticed that the flex plate on the 360 has balance weights on it and the 318 does not. Make sure the plate stays with the 360. The torque converter and exhaust manifolds bolted right up. The 96 360 engine had different connector plugs on the Map sensor, Crank Sensor and Tps. Get those off of your 318.
I did notice that with the 96 PCM for the 360 my fuel guage was off quite a bit. The 360 will run off of the 318 computer at least if your in a bind for Money.

SOURCE: why do i have low compression in only one cylinder

Here is a easy way to find out,its called a leakage test and here is how you can do it,bring that cylinder top dead center,you may have to remove that valve cover and make sure all valves are bottomed out.put 50 psi of air in the spark plug hole remove radiator cap air cleaner and oil fill,listen for the air comeing out.if you have air coming from your air cleaner you have a intake valve bad,do the same with the exhaust,if you have bubbles in your radiator you have a blown headgasket,if you hear alot of air comeing from your oil fill you have a problem with that piston,I hope this helps you,

Wondering how do u replace a lift on a 2005 dodge ram 5.7 hemi


You may have a valve problem, bent shaft..rocker and pushrods stay the same, the slack comes from the valve.

Whats the cause of a slightly bent pushrod and a rocker arm to nearly come off?


the high lift cam has no compensation and so the valve retainer bottomed out causing the rocker to slip sideways and bend the push rod
you would have been better fitting a prolonged duration cam rather that a high lift for the following reasons
1 --- you can used standard rocker gear
2 ---there is no valve bounce at high rpm
3 --- smoother air flow in the inlet manifold so there is not such a stop/ start action when rpm is low
4--- less wear on cam followers and cam lobes
cam shafts are all about open duration so longer open with smaller lift is better than the same duration with a fast up and down action

When my truck is idleing it has a skip to it. i just gave it a tune up yesterday. it will **** a dollar bill up the tail pipe. do you know if a bad valve would cause this problem or could it be something...


This is usually caused by a bad valve or a bent pushrod. Either way at least one of the exhaust valves is not seating properly. You could pull the valve covers, remove the rocker arms, and pull each pushrod and check them one by one for straightness to eliminate the easy fix, but if you don't find a bent one you will have to pull the heads to check the valves. Personally I would pull the heads anyway and inspect them because a bent pushrod could be a symptom of a bigger problem.
