|1973 Dodge Superior Motorhome Repairs||Eugene Cummings Jr.||9-30-15|
|I Have Just Bought A Vintage 1973 Superior Motorhome. It Has The Dodge 413 Engine In It. And It Dose Need Some Repairs. One Thing I Do Know It Needs It The Ceramic Rectifier That is On The Firewall. it Did Run When It Was Parked Five Years Ago. But My Question Really Is This. Where Can I Find Parts For It?|

|Thats not a rectifier, its a "Balast Resistor" Standard brand list it as either a 2 terminal part # RU-4 or 4 terminal is a RU-12|
Any competant parts guy can sell you one as long as you call it a ballast resistor and know if its 2 or four terminal. Most parts stores still stock this, used on all chrysler product from 1960 ish to 1991 ish.
But I would look around inside glove compartments and such, there may be new one there already. Most people did cary one just in case. Saved my butt out in the cold a couple times.
These are a very very common failure point on this ignition system. If you are going to drive it any distance buy two.
As to the rest of it except for internal engine parts the drive line is just another big block Dodge. Use the 383 or 440 pickup to order parts to avoid confusing people when they don't know what a 413 or how to look up motor home parts.
Good luck and have fun
