    Talking Hi from California

    Hi everyone, I recently bought a 1984 Dodge Ram 50 2wd with the 4D55-T. The truck runs and drives well but it's pretty rough around the edges. So far I've put new tires and hose on it; I plan to refresh the interior, paint, tending to the suspension, turbo, and maybe upgrade to a 4D56 head. This site is by far the best source of information on the truck so I'm sure I'll be on the forums quite a bit and I hope to contribute once I'm more familiar with the vehicle.







    Here's a thing I did today, I wanted to replace/upgrade the leaky primer pump and I though the Bosch type for MB diesels might thread in. Well the thread on the Bosch is a finer pitch than the plastic OEM pump so I had to make an adapter. I drew up the part and made the necessary changes for the Bosch to work, machined the part, and installed it. It works great
