We bought an 87 Dakota when they first came out, and had to get a '91
with Club Cab when our son was born.
Drove it for 240,000 miles and had a cracked block. Should have gotten a
new engine, but bought an '03 Dakota that my wife now drives every day.
Well, the guy I sold the '91 to had a new block put in and repainted it.
Drove great for 4 years, but now has problems with the computer wiring
harness, and might sell or trade it back to me.
Since we don't need emissions checked on '91 vehicles here, I was
wondering how much work it would be to rip that computer out of the
truck and drive it for another 15 years. Since it's a 318, I should be
able to find a manifold & carb. Would I have to get another
transmission, since it's controlled by the computer? The tranny's not
%100 anyway. What are my non-electric tranny choices?
