don't see my VIN#, does that mean i'm in the clear?
No, but if you see it, you need some work done. I can't be sure this is a 100% complete list. Best to E-mail the guy listed above if you have any doubts.sanchoba said:don't see my VIN#, does that mean i'm in the clear?
Right on. I called the Northwest Dodge tech, he made a few phone calls, and then got faxed a list of VIN's from their dealership.INTREPER said:It's rather interesting how enthusiast boards know about everything even before some of the DC executives.
3.3 hours? My tech said I should plan on leaving it over night. Maybe he has a lot of work going on. They have to remove the balancer and everything else on the front of the motor.Tacdoc said:The repair process looks pretty hairy. I cant imagine it all being done in the 3.3 hours allotted.
I have two to do also. I just got the D-mail this morning. 3.3 for the Viper and 5.? for the truck...I hope I don't make to much on any of these...where do they come up with these times.
From http://www.viperalley.com/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/292159/page/0/view/collapsed/sb/5/o//fpart/1I don't know where the hell they get these times. It makes it real hard to make a living doing this with the time allowances they give us anymore. FYI, the oil pan will not come out of the Ram without pulling the engine. The cross brace between the lower control arms (the one with 2 long bolts on either side) is welded on the SRT Rams. You can drop the pan and reach in and take the the pickup tube loose (4 nuts and don't drop 'em!) and then pull the cover. It takes damn near an hour to get the fan/radiator assembly out. Lucky for me, the majority of the trucks we have sold went out of state. The parts are on major backorder as of today. Good luck,
