    1997 Dodge Ram 1500 club Cab Transmission issue

    Thank you, That would be awesome if that solved it! Checking today
  2. Truck question for a buddy of mine who just bought a new Ram Quad Cab Long Bed truck today. His old 97 Ram 1500 has been beat up pretty good in the construction industry but still runs reliably. The only issue is that the automatic transmission seems to hesitate when first trying to go and then clunks into gear and operates just fine throughout all gears. It only does it a couple times when cold and seems to fix itself when the tranny warms up. Just happens a couple times in the first 10-15 minutes in the mornings after sitting overnight. The transmission was serviced at Dodge about 18-20 months ago and this just started happening in the last month. From a stand still it seems to not want to go into gear initially and then clunks into gear hard. Any wild guesses or experience with a 97 Ram 1500 transmission? V8 motor.

    Tire wear

    I stand corrected, I was thinking we were referencing a sport bike with a chain, sorry. The older wings are a beast of their own!

    Tire wear

    I just looked again at my rear tire and it looks better than I expected. I live on a short shellrock road so it shows wear clearly. I am about a half mile from I-95 so spend a lot of time on the interstate. I have almost 7000 miles on this Pilot Road 3 and have at least another 1000 easy.

    Tire wear

    It certainly could be just crown but just does not sound right to me. All bikes do have an adjustment for alignment. The little marks on the swing arm axle brackets (for lack of a better name) have to be equal on both sides. Chain adjuster marks! must be the same on both sides given that nothing is bent or broken. If not the same, not only will the tire wear off center but the chain and sprockets will wear out prematurely as well. Last I looked at my BlackBird rear tire, it will be due for a change out fairly soon and the wear is straight down the middle of the Pilot Road 3. Almost to the wear bars in the center. Most all the mileage is on Interstate highways if that makes any difference.

    Tire wear

    Remembering back the couple years I was a service writer for a large jap bike dealership and my personal 100,000+ miles on my bikes, I can't recall a single rear tire that wore out the side wall before the center. With tires being made with harder compounds in the center for longer life and softer compounds on the side walls for better grip in the corners seems strange to me that road crowns would have much if any effect on uneven rear tire wear. Only place i see that drastic side wall wear pattern is on the racetrack where there are more left turns than right or visa versa. On the street I would not think road crowns would have much of an effect. I never considered myself a great service writer due to not a big supporter of dealership techs and i have been known to be wrong more often than not. Anyone know of any accurate information as to the correlation of road crowns and rear tire wear? What about the front tire, does it have similar side wear patterns? I go back to alignment issues myself.

    Miss-aligned rear wheel will do that very quickly

    WTB: Orphan 8mm Video Equipment

    I just plugged it in and looked to see what is on the two tapes that I have. Discovered it is videos of my classes when I was teaching my customer service reps the technical side of car wash parts and equipment at Sonny's Enterprises. 10-12 years ago. Funny as I am now creating car wash parts content for the website of the largest distributor of Sonny's today. I would like to have the two videos on disc for future review. Bill, If you want to go first, email or text me your mailing address and I will get it heading your way.

    WTB: Orphan 8mm Video Equipment

    if you can use it the cost is the shipping and transfer of whatever if anything that is on the two tapes for me and then send it on to others that can use it. It comes in a nice Case Logic padded bag and all the cables/adapters. No charge for the thick layer of dust on the bag.
