Those port injected v8 dakots really made the wood gas simple with enough extra power being lighter weight too HP ratial,and the port fuel injected 93 too 96 dakots, saved a lot of trouble, and still tow a decent size trailer load when needed.
Luxurious dream car for a Sunday ride with woodgas!
Hey Billy .
You where looking for a transsmition . You might give this one some thought ,
Plus lots of other low-rust parts. Jakob, do you really want/ need a four-wheel drive?
Might be a low-ball offer opportunity.
Hi Mr Wayne thanks but i bought a transmission that i hope will work. A guy up north of Knoxville was parting out a truck and sold me one pretty cheap. I just got in from taking the old one out, i have not set them side by side yet to see if they match. I think it will work though. Jakob
I think the older trannys will work if good and nor too many wires more than the year of your dakota year. The old trannys used the down shift cable too tell the trans when time too change gears, and had too be adjusted nice and snug. The newer tranys use more sencors and actuator solinoids too open the valve body pasages. And no longer use the cable, but the cable type should work, even though you might see a tranny code, they would work, long as the tranny is a 4 speed.
My tranny and the one i bought both have the downshift cable. The only thing that i know is diffrent the year model; the tranny that i bought is a 92 my truck is a 96. I am pretty sure the bell housing bolts are the same. The only thing that i noticed was diffrent was that the dipstick tube bolted on differently. Jakob
Sounds like a worker, i would call around or check ebay and salvage yard too make sure fly wheel are same for ballanceing check. And make sure you adjust the cable snug i think, there is a utube vidio for gm tranys too adjust the down shift cable snug, hope that helped, good luck with your dakota project.
That is a pretty one!
