Lost motor in my 98 1500.
going to purchase a used 318 from 99, supposedly from another Ram truck.
How do I identify the engine as being from a 99 truck ?

Need casting numbers from block. Any '96 or newer 5.2 will work. Actually any 5.2 magnum will work far as the block is concerned. The difference is on top, the '96 up is OBD II, different connectors and the like, and no EGR.

Number is stamped in block and most times last or first number is year.

If it is a 99 all of your harness will work.

Thanks all ! The 99 engine has looked to have been sold . Found a 96 with 76K on it. If harness needs changing, I'm up for that..
