I can tell you that the 318 ZJ transmission will NOT work behind the Ram 360, tried that already. I'm not sure if the 5.9 would, you'd have to have one out and compare the output shaft on the tcase...

If the O2 sensor was bad, make sure you do a couple of good, long runs to clean up the cat, raw fuel and cats don't mix well and can be an expensive.

If you mean is this right for your transmission, yes. Should you buy this one? I wouldn't. First, you are probably going to pay more than you should, depending on what you are trying to do. What is...

FYI, you can get to the sensor by dropping the pan, the solenoid requires pulling the valve body, not hard but messy. Check to see if it's throwing any codes, a bad solenoid should toss one but it...

Wait a sec, you say it won't turn over but the AC compressor will spin by hand? Now, the compressor has a clutch so yes, it should spin easy with no load on it, but I have a hard time believing the...
