I also posted this under the 1st generation thread re engines, but thought I should perhaps have posted this here instead, or in addition to, or... Okay... I have no clue what I'm doing, so please forgive me if I am wasting anybody's time!
"We recently purchased an 01 DD in need of some TLC. Price was WAY too good to pass up. Here's what I know for sure. The engine is not the original engine. I have contacted the original owner and had a great convo on it's history up to 2009. Once the second owner entered the picture, things went awry with this person putting in another engine and then getting in over his head. I do not have the contact info to the second owner. Unlisted.
I believe it is a newer model 4.7 L, though not sure as to exact year. The wiring harness, might match, but so far having a problem with the plugs. Once I figure out the year of the newer engine, which BTW starts and runs really, really well with no problems with vacuum/suction re the carburator, I can then get the right plugs of a like year model. The tranny controller is original to the car. I have a part number to this engine, but have yet to locate the number cast onto the block. Working on that.
Does anybody know where I can find a Dodge parts list? Thanks in advance for any assistance!!"
