Question type: Car Customization

HI I have a 1994 dodge dakota with a 360 and 5
speed trans and I have a 1984 dodge power ram
with a 318 auto. Now how hard would it be to take
the motor and trans out of the dakota and put in
the ram? Beside the pedals.

I believe you'll need a different bellhousing. You're going to need to figure out if the 5spd transmission in the Dakota is a ax15 or nv3500 and if which ever one you have will bolt up to your 318 bellhousing. If I had to guess I'd say you'll need the bellhousing from a 318 Dakota with the same transmission your that came from the factory in your ram
