I'm lookin at a 78 dodge or plymouth prospector van here, 318, auto with power windows. nice body...needs a bit of engine work.
Guy wants a whoppin $150.00 for it. He said he was driving one day and van shut off like you cut the switch off. Sounds like a nice winter project. Hope my chevy shorty don't get jealous. I'll keep yall informed...BigJim

Sounds like the ballast resistor blew. A five minute and $2 fix. Go for it!

Hey Jim, go wih the ballist resister first. It's seriously a 5 minute job. You might not have to do anything to the carb.
