Hope you bought a diesel to haul that baby of yours around Ten Packs. Gas engines aren't that efficient pulling heavy loads. They tend to wear out quick too.

No, I wish.... but you may recall I had a rebuild a few years ago to my four-bolt-main, heavy duty 350 - cammed it, heavy duty oil pump, heavy timing chain, new lifters and a few other goodies.


But yeah, had the 5th wheel a couple months and I kept hearing this mantra in my head; "Dodge Ram Cummins, Dodge Ram Cummins, Dodge Ram Cummins"....

And if I could talk Mother into having a "second baby" (like I got the bucks! right...), it would be:



And YES! That's a small-block Chevy, stuffed in there - QuadraJet, four-bolt mains, the works.... 355 HP.

Google "Boss Hoss".

Its a great way to get a vacation away from the wife, you park it in the woods for a couple of weeks with the wife and kids, and than you take the truck and go to town.

I like that new (not so new anymore) Chevy diesel better than the Cummins, Ten Packs. It's damned near as quiet as a gas engine and has tons of low-end power. I've also heard that the transmission is better. Pricey though.

I'd forgotten that you had a 4-bolt 350. Those don't wear nearly as bad because the crankshaft doesn't flop around under load. Every time I look at the big green truck sitting out back I think, "Hmmm...bad piston rod, likely a spun bearing, motor kaput." Then I think of how hard that little 305 had to work even when the truck was dead empty and think, "How did it last as long as it did?"

I'm still waiting to see if a free engine pops up. The little Dodge is nice around town, but it tops out at about 90 klicks on the highway with a load on.

We have a '99 Dodge Ram Cummins, and it beats everyone on the road even while towing. I wouldn't trade it in for anything.

My brother in law has one of the new chevy diesels (2004), and I don't think it has the same muscle in it. Or maybe because it doesn't have the diesel sound it just doesn't seem the same.

Actually, last September we were staying in an RV park in Vernon, and a guy with a late model Ram was beside us. I noticed it was very quiet, so I went over to ask him if he knew what was different these days.

Turns out that some company (cummins, I think) did a lot of research into it, and of all things, they found that a redesigned FUEL PUMP cuts the majority of the "clattery" engine noise....
I dont understand that, but he seemed to know what he was talking about.

I also mentioned the story to my next-door neighbour, who is retired from Finning, and he agreed with it.
