Project Ellie May

Ellie May is a white 1988 Chevy R30 Cab and Chassis with a 9' flatbed, My uncle has a black 1984 C30 C&C called he calls Jethro, so I call mine Ellie May after The Beverly Hillbillies.

The truck had been sitting in storage for at least 10 years in Northeastern Ohio and ran when parked, and after a while would not start.







The air cleaner being removed may have lead to the throttle body problems that I have had.

Being off loaded in my driveway.



And the engine after sitting.

Re: Project Ellie May

I've been a member for a while now! In about 6 months I'll get really serious about looking for an engine. I wouldn't mind running a VE pump engine as long as it was intercooled.

Re: Project Ellie May

They are cheaper and east to find. Do a HM trans behind it. Those old dodge ones were terrible

Re: Project Ellie May

I want to go manual, probably NV4500 and NOT a G360

Re: Project Ellie May

That was supposed to be GM not HM. Dumbphone problems.

A NV4500 would be a great trans. Earlier dodge trans really sucked.

Re: Project Ellie May

On the first Gen Cummins. The 5 speed manuals could randomly have a certain pin loosen up and grenade the entire trans. Not very likely but not uncommon. And Chrysler has never been known for its autos.

Re: Project Ellie May

Getrag G360 trans was the manual used in the first gen Cummins Ram is known to be crap.


I disagree on Chrysler not having a good auto, the Torqueflite 727 is a pretty strong trans.

When you typoed HM I thought you meant Hydromatic like a TH400 or 4L80

Re: Project Ellie May

From what I have heard from first Gen Cummins owners it's not a very common problem but the 5 speed at junk. For once ya want a auto from dodge.

Re: Project Ellie May

Maybe I'll just run a SM465 and a Brownie box, Or if I can get my hands on a Eaton Roadranger from a medium duty truck.
