Plenum fix and tune up

All right well I finally decided that a quart of oil every 500 miles was enough. Along with pining and loss of a lot of power I decided to do the plenum plate gasket fix. I ended up making my own plate out of a sheet of aluminum (can't remember the thickness but its a little thicker than the original one). there was a quarter inch of oil pooled at the bottom of intake just looking through the throttle body.

I used OEM Mopar Gaskets. Also installed all new vacuum lines, PCV valve, plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. Also used all new bolts for the plate and manifold.

While I had the accessory bracket off and manifold I spray painted them flat black looks a lot better.

The project took about three hours to do. This is the eighth one I have done. The first time I did this it took 10 hours. Overall the truck runs so much better. Before she would chug real bad at some points and had a lack of power. Also no longer smoke like a diesel at WOT.

If you are looking into doing this project and need any help just send me a message or post here and i can help you out.

here are some pictures:

End: don't know why but these pictures don't show how good the paint looks.

I will get a few more tomorrow when it is lighter out with it all together my batteries ran out.
