82 Dodge 225 slant 6

Well, I just brought that truck home that my co-worker gave me---one of 'em anyway---still gotta retrieve the 82 Chevy.

82 Dodge D-150 short wide
6Cyl / 4speed OD----I think this is the car tranny converted to truck use.
43,272 ACTUAL miles.

Truck runs and drives great----Base truck--no power anything.

Anyway---it tends to stall when warmed up and coming to an intersection.
Not necessarily when I come to a stop----pretty much whenever the clutch is dis-engaged.

Starts back up right away----and idles just fine---perhaps a bit fast.

Anyone got an idea where I can check this??

Boy---what an anemic truck----there is a small grade on the hiway between home and work----have to shift to 3rd to make it----4th is just way too high.
But it does drive at 75 real easy in 4th.

I have not had stalling problems of any kind since I stopped driving Chrysler Products in the early 80s. But even then---only when cold---this thing is better when cold.

Warning: You will never be able to completely kill a slant 6. They're like the zombies of the engine world -- they keep plodding back to suck your brain!

I have 3 bookmarks regarding my old '80 D150 slant 6. One of them happens to talk about cold driveability problems:

Cold driveability problems tend to stem from poorly adjusted choke and choke pulloff, bad accelerator pump, and sloppy carb rebuilds (Carter BBS one barrel is better than Holley 1920.) Other big driveability problem source is the fact that the vibration damper outer ring tends to slip, which makes the timing mark WAY OFF. Which means timing would never be accurately set. Also check for timing chain stretch.

Check by putting the engine at #1 TDC - top of compression stroke (both valves closed) and see where the timing mark is. There are companies that re-bond dampers with new silicone material. I think one is called Damper Dudes, out of California. I don't know if this happens on other CC engines. Basically, if your damper has an inner hub and an outer ring sandwiching rubber bonding material, this can happen.

The other 2:

Taking Charge: Electrical and Charging Tips and Tweaks to Keep Your Mopar Current (same site, different topic)

Adjusting the Choke on a SL6 (might help you with that stalling)

Now I have to go back and look at the pictures you posted.

I worked for Dodge in the mid-late 70s. Most mopars had poorly adjusted carbs (choke pulls, chokes,metering rods, you name it) I don't know if that one is hyd or solid lifters? Start from scratch, comp test, & work from there.
