Cert label in door jam?

Build sheet under carpet or behind seat?

Any history from previous owner?


Cert label, check. No build sheet under the carpet/behind the seat that I've found yet.

Only history I really have is the packet that came with the new engine in the truck...and some random receipts/invoices in the glove box.

HAD California emissions...looks like all of the emissions stuff has long since been removed...should make getting it to pass Colorado emissions interesting.

How can I tell if they're after market or Mopar?

IT RUNS! Just took it for two laps around my neighborhood. I charged up the battery in it and it seemed like it took way to short of time to charge. It did start, but the second time I went to start it all I got was the starter relay click.

Pulled the battery from the '93 and it's started up twice now just fine. If there's a drain in the system I have no clue what would cause a battery to lose charge that quick... :?:

The last amount of money the previous owner spent on it was to have the alternator replaced, the battery "checked/charged", and the fuse for the interior lamps pulled (which it still is).

Well it was a combination of a bad battery and the terminal that was on the battery clamp that feeds everything (BUT the starer). It simply wasn't crimped properly! As soon as I tugged on it, the wire just pulled out of the connector. The only thing holding it together was the wiring shrink wrap... :shock:

I'm in the process of draining out a FULL tank of year old gas...fun! :roll:
