Unle Fester bought my old van and is driving it an a trailer full of parts from Tacoma, WA back to Oklahoma. He got as far as about 90 miles outside of Buttonwillow, CA when the pulley came off the harmonic balancer on the engine and took the serpentine belt with it. Fester is stuck on the side of the road with no tools and a dead van and I am in Tacoma, WA.

He has tow coverage through his insurance, but he needs someplace to repair the van and the parts to do it.

Anybody near Buttonwillow able to help out? It is an 89 E150 with a 351. He needs a new crank pulley, serpentine belt, and maybe a new balancer if the old bolts won't come out (heads sheared off three bolts, one bolt is missing).

Welcome from Florida.
I have seen a that van posted on here the other day. I really dig it. The colors, interior etc are just way cool. If it looks that good in person and is mechanically decent. I would pull the trigger.

Hi,

I might be picking up a van tomorrow (full size dodge) and need to know where to rent a trailer that will fit the van.

I have a Ram 1500 that can haul it but not sure how to find a trailer rental to go about 650 miles. UHaul seems like they are too small.


Please help!

Would be going from CA to Utah.

Thanks!

Hey all,

Strange place for a 1st post but I've been following this forum for about 6 months now, loved the "Vanning" type vans since I was a kid, am 41yrs young and think THIS might be my 1st attempt at a van!!!

Oh my, SO much wood and harvest gold I'm having childhood flashbacks of our kitchen and my best friends Dodge wagon!

Would this be a good 1st Van?

Never felt like I could comment until I threw or was close to throwing my hat in the ring.

Opinions please?

Thanks!

Thank you, now I know its usefulness. Do you think it's mandatory to give one? Does that prevent me from starting the van if it is not connected?

Yes. Those four marks are for the magnetic pickup system Chrysler was using in the 70s and 80s. See thse tubes that are on the timing tabs? Those were for the magnetic pickups that dealerships used on their timing lights and diagnostic machines. Everyone else just uses a timing light.

The top timing tab was the one used on trucks and cars where you could see the tab from the top. THe ower tab is mainly a van thing due to the short nose of the van.

If it isn't immediatly obvious which timing mark on the damper is the one you use to find TDC on the #1 cylinder, then you are going to have to use a piston stop tool to find TDC manually. Part of the problem is the four timing marks, part of the problem is the fact that the timing marks are on the outer ring of the vibration damper that is bonded to the inner ring and the vulcanized rubber that holds the outer ring on can degrade over time and allow the out ring to slip. When the outer ring slips it no longer accurately indicates TDC. The only thing to do then is find TDC manually usuing a piston stop tool. It isn't hard, but you have ot know how to do it right.

(1) remove plug from cylinder 1
(1.5) remove the valve cover over cuylinder 1 and rotate the crank while watching the valves. Rotate the crank until you see the intake valve on piston 1 open and then close. This ensures you are on the compression stroke.
(2) install the piston stop tool
(3) rotate crank clockwise by hand until piston contacts the piston stop tool.
(4) make a line on the damper at the TDC mark on the timing tab
(5) rotate the crank counterclockwise until piston contacts piston stop tool
(6) mark a line on the damper at the TDC mark on the timing tab.
(7) TDC on the crank is halfway between the two marks you made on the damper. Don't be surprised if true TDC does not line up with the mark cast into the damper. Make a new mark at true TDC on your damper.
(8) rotate the crank clockwise until the true TDC mark you made on the damper lines up with TDC on the timing tab. Congratulations. Your motor is now at true TDC on the compression stroke of the #1 piston.
(9) disconnect vacuum advance hose and plug it
(10 ) reinstall the plug in #1, along with the #1 plug wire
(11) start engine and use the timing light to set your base timing a specified.

Done.
