I desperately need help. I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 V10. Motor blew so I bought a replacement from a 1995 Dodge Ram V10. I realize the replacement is OBD1 and it has EGR valve. So I switched Intake Manifolds complete with fuel rails and throttle bodies and passenger side exhaust manifold. I also switched crank sensor and cam sensor. Once complete attempted start. Getting fuel but no fire to plugs. Pulled one plug and verified. Was told that if cam sensor was not installed correctly that damage would occur to sensor which of course would cause the no fire. Then I was told that it was more serious that I now had to remove the front of the engine in order to change something called the firing ring on the front of the camshaft that the 1995 and the 1999 used different rings. Is any of this true? Please please help clarify this for me. My truck has been down for 2-months.
If I do have to replace the firing ring on front of the camshaft, would the entire camshaft have to be removed in order to replace this part or just the front of the engine.
have the same problem?
