    New and just picked up a ram 50 sport

    Hi I just picked up a one owner 1989 ram 50 sport, 2.6L 4wd Manuel and inside is immaculate! Picked it up for a good deal cause it needs the clutch fork repaired.
    This truck is nice and needs nothing but a wax and the bumpers redone. Ac is cold, not one crack in the dash and all the maintenance has been done recently with new shocks, diff fluids and all till the clutch started acting up. The clutch fork lever has plenty of movement when depressing the clutch, and where can I pick a fork up?

    But I am from Ogden Utah, I am capable of doing everything myself and have all the tools to do so!



    For some reason the interior looks brown ish but looks way better in person

    Yup, Justin, you found yourself a wonderful treasure. As interior goes, this is about ultimate (and most of us are jealous) and...dang it!...another guy gets one of these trucks with a shell! WHERE was MY luck when I bought my '90!?!?

    Congrats and welcome to the forum.

    Question?
    Can the 4g64 block bolt up to this trans? That would be cool if I did the 63t head on the 4g64 block.
    If I keep it.....

    Yes both the 4g64 and the g54b are wide blocks. Welcome to you and your truck!

    Pulled the trans In 2 hours

    and the spring in the clutch disc came apart and got Jammed in the pp so it wouldn't release. Yes, that's what's left of the pilot bearing too.

    I stared but didn't 'get it' until you pointed it out. The Duh Factor strikes again.

    Yowza. Bet that made some dogs howl.

    Pennyman buys superglue by the 55 gallon drum.


    I hope your not crawling under that truck with just that floor jack holding the rear of that truck and floor stands in the front. Seems a little scary since I own a floor jack just like that and it doesn't quite work correctly.

    BTW - I hate superglue with a passion - people try to fix things with it that it never could possibly work on - that was the joke...

    Superglue is great on cuts that won't stop bleeding.

    I just lifted it up in the back only to pull the trans out the side.
    Not while working on it.
    I'm having mixed feeling if I should keep it or sell it....
    It's sooo clean! I waxed a little spot and it looked nice!
    And when I removed the center console, there was barely a tan line from the carpet under that and the rest!
    The only thing is that back bumper!
    Should I have it soda blasted and powdered red or black?

    Oh and I've been into mitsu's for 9 years and owned 11 of them, 6 were dsm's and a galant vr4.
    This is my baby

    It's a stock 6 bolt with a holset hx40, 1000cc injectors, cams, full intake, fmic, exhaust and coil overs. And a ton more stuff!

    Trucks look ok with out a bumpers too, but if you can't locate one for cheap I would do what you suggested. There are bumpers online for around a hundred bucks and might save you the labor time. Put in a search in the forum, some people have doner trucks and you may get lucky that way also. You'll need your donation label before your able to sell anything though.

    If you're bent on keeping the rear bumper, I'd say hand-sand it and paint it. You'll take it off to do that, and you might like the 'no bumper' look. Just be careful backing up, especially with that (nice!) camper shell still on there. Otherwise, you'll have a decent bumper, and the rest looks like it will detail out pretty nice.

    You have a treasure many guys here would kill for, so know you have a really rare find, and embrace it. That is the nicest, most equiped interior I've ever seen on one of these trucks. You will indeed enjoy driving it, and you'll never want to let it go.

    The D50 Sport looks to be the equivalent to the MM SPX. Full carpet along with the same standard equipment. (My cruise is on the wiper switch stalk however...*scratches head*) You landed a real find there. PLUS 4WD!!! I'm happy for you...ya done good! Don't sell it if you can help it even for home ownership, you'll regret doing that.

    So my wife wants me to keep the truck, she even said it was a sweet find and she's not into cars.

    But anyways I put the new clutch kit, input shaft bearing and seal, also rear main seal in and it
    Shifts and runs great!
    Just need to wax it and change plugs and set ignition timing.
