    Gas gauge and sending unit replaced, still no accurate fuel level

    The dash wiring also needs a good ground as well as battery to frame. Perhaps the float to coil relationship on the sender needs 'adjusting' This is just where I'd start looking. Hopefully someone that knows will chime in here.

    Gas gauge and sending unit replaced, still no accurate fuel level

    99% of all electrical issues on these are ground related. That being said, I have 3 of these ole Dodges in use and none of the gas gauges are accurate, each one reads different too. The M880 "E" is a 1/2 tank, M884 "3/4" is empty! The Ambulance "3/4" is full. Forgetting which read what can be...

    Need some help on identifying some marks on M886

    M880 5.2 smoke coming out of air breather inlet

    With the 727 trans the pump does not circulate fluid while in park. I will put mine in neutral for a minute before putting in gear. It helps the stall out. Also trans fluid level cannot be checked in park, must be in neutral.

    M880 5.2 smoke coming out of air breather inlet

    I put a clear inline filter just before the fuel pump. Yes where the fuel line connects to the carb.

    M880 5.2 smoke coming out of air breather inlet

    Change the fuel filter, I have found the rust particles from the metal fuel line can get in the seat and let fuel go by. when this has happened I would loosen the the fuel line at the fuel bowl & allow the back flow to rinse the seat. 2nd cause could be the starter relay on the fender well...
