The 5.9L was a sweet motor, but it did love its gasoline! I'd like to see it. The Big Green has been in my family since new, so I've not had another conversion. If I were rich I'd probably have a yard full eek ! Just something about 'em I've always loved. Our church van is a '93 Dodge with a 5.9. Still working on how to sell it to the wife when they get ready to upgrade laugh . I'm headed to bed, but I'll catch you later.

Yea I want to get another van one with a top though, the top can be a pain sometimes. I also want a dodge ram pickup 3500 and a dodge ram 1500 with a 5.2l and a durango 5.2l

anyways yea the 5.9L does love that fuel. i didn't see the point in the 5.9L because I hear people who have a 5.9L now and they say "oh good MPG when towing" I was towing a 32' travel trailer with my 5.2l van and was getting about 12-13MPG.
Love the 5.2L, my top engine I think. But yea catch you on the rebound. I will probably have some photos to share with you and everyone else, been hesitant about sharing because I'm so conscience about the hi top (clear coat and stuff)... I'm gonna be going sleep soon too, have to get up early.

Helped my buddy get his 67 Dodge A-van up and running. Turned out to be a bad coil. I thought the condenser went bad. No biggie so now he has a brand new set of points AND a new coil. smile

Went out early before the rain came so I could replace the stripped wheel stud, went to remove the wheel and there was another stripped stud so had to go out to the auto part store get another stud and nut. Finally was able to replace those two studs and nuts. Torqued them down to 110 ft-lbs and went back to each wheel loosened the nuts and torqued to 110 ft-lbs. All is well now, finally. And yes I did reseat the bearings 20 ft-lbs then back off then finger tighten and new cotter pin. smile

Put a new (ie, old one I had laying around) radio. Now I get clear sound, but only on the left side. Got REAL nice and shiny, gonna make a run to Junaluska in NC on Sunday. Course, since its shiny, I expect a downpour in Asheville. Changed the oil.
