    I'm using a 1975 Dodge W200 4WD for plowing at my church.Truck was bought this past fall.A real "beater" if you know what I mean! I need to find
    info like specs on motor size,trans type,any 4WD info.It didn't come with a
    users manual,and I can't find one online anywhere.I've never plowed before and have already found out how to make emergency repairs.(Baptisim by Fire) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks steve

    dodge info

    well if you go to www.google.com and type in dodge W200 all kinds of sites and info comes up it probably has one of the old 318 or bigger engines?? you should be able to get specs online and repair info also.

    I hate to be the spoil sport- but I suspect they had optional engines and transmission back then just as they do now so 2 models of the same truck can and probabily will be different. Get a repair manual for the truck (chiltons are adequate and cheap) and it will decode the VIN number telling you what engines is in it.
    What specs do you want to know? The HP or Torque are irrelevent for repairs, the transmission can usually be identified by sight if you know what to look for- in an auto, for example, the shape of the pan tells you. There are references online.
