As Oldrebuiltdodge posted, you've got problems with either fuel, electrical or both. If both are in A-1 shape there's no way you need to plug in a block heater at 25 to 40. If your glow plugs and...

I'm with oldrebuiltdodge, it comes out from the glove box area. It's been a long time, but best I can recall it's a pretty easy job compared to other vehicles.

Ya got me. I am under the impression trucks of this era had a small stainless silver tag bolted to a differential cover bolt that said the ratio. Like mine says LS3:55 (limited slip, 3:55 ratio) if...

Tapered roller bearings most always have a part number stamped on the edge of the race. However years ago I heard of some way off-brand oddball Chinese bearings that were not marked, if you run into...

99% of the time axle bearings in a full floating axle like you have last forever, so inspect them but they're probably OK. They came out with an improved axle seal years ago and any decent parts...

If the axle seals are leaking bad enough to get oil on the linings you'll have to replace the brake shoes too. The oil penetrates the linings and won't clean off. When the brakes get hot, more oil...

Right, Diesel Clean is not an algaecide if I remember right. As bad as your fuel sample looked, you'd be wise to pull and steam the tanks AND then use an algaecide also. The fleet trucking magazine...

Right, that's what I was saying, most all the blowby bleeds off into the intake manifold through the CDR valve so you may or may not see much out the oil filler.

The system is designed for blowby to go through the CDR valve and from there into the intake air stream so you really can't tell how much blowby you have unless you block off the CDR valve. After...

Like Oldrebuiltdodge posted and it applies to most any vehicle:

Artic Driver is correct, Fremont has Wyoming sewed up as far as dealerships. They have one in almost every decent sized town. I'm not a big fan.

Right, I've overhauled many back in the day, maybe a diode (they're easy to check and replace), brushes, bearings and it's good as new.

I've used the nylon ones year in and year out, they last forever, never saw a need to replace one. Same with copper and the red fiber types used in engines in truck shop I worked in.

It's not that difficult. Contrary to "expert" forum advice, don't use any silicone sealer on either side of the gasket, especially if it's cork. As an RTV sealer rep said, RTV sealer is a gasket...
