Hey all, i'm new the the board, and i've got a few questions about my rig. I recently bought a 1989 Power Ram 150, and I am not sure ont he engine sie, i was told it was a 318, but then i was told it was a 360, I am not that good at asking the engine what size it is (they usually don't like to talk to me hahaha) did the 89 150 power rams come stock with the 360 or was it a shoe horn project afterwards? and whats the difference between a regular 150 Ram and a 150 Power Ram (just curious on that one)

also I have seen a thread about the knock in the drive train, i have figured out that all my u joints are recently new and have grease nipples so they are greased regularly, there was a lot of stuff said on the thread about what it might be, i got confused and left. hehehe

i hope to talk to a few people that can offer some insite on some of the quirks that i have.

Cheers

On the left side of the engine block behind or above the starter, you'll see the casting numbers cast into the block. At the end of those numbers the engine size should be cast into the engine block as well.
