Vacuum leaks will almost always manifest themselves at idle, and if it's big enough to cause this concern - it should be easy to find. I'd really be suspicious of a distributor based concern.

Well, I was checking the pick n pull website today, and noticed that a 76 dodge arrived on Friday. So, I headed down there and grabbed the grille, headlight buckets, and lower valance. I brought it...

Here's a pic of my old beast. It's been working great. I had no intention of it being a daily driver, but I really like driving it - so my Honda's been sitting unused.

new here with an old old ram

Hi. I'm new here, had a few dodges over the years, including an 80 streetvan, a 90 dodge power ram on 35s with the roof cut off, and now, a pretty solid 89 2wd 318 dodge truck.

Older round headlight grille on an 89 ram

Has anyone swapped an older style 75 ish grille onto a late 80s truck? The rad support looks the same, what problems will I run into other than the lower panel, light buckets and brackets?
