1987 Dodge Raider 2.6
So far, I love my Raider
Just got my '87 Raider. Been working on it for 3 months. It sat in a field for 7 years.
Rebuilt the 2.6 and replaced the head. All new brakes.. from the master cylinder, lines, rotors, calipers, shoes, hubs, EVERYTHING.
Flushed and cleaned the entire fuel system, and replaced all the fuel lines. Now to rebuild or replace the carb???
Seems like everything works, and it's a fun lil' truck to drive. Still haven't gone off road yet, but looking forward to it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The best you can do is get rid of the old carb and fuel pump. There is an after market carb and electric fuel pump. That will really help, if you want to go the distance. Get a new set of timing chains, and get an after market set that eliminates the balance shaft chain. Not needed, all of this, and a new head really helps the get up and go on the 2.6 engine.
