Thanks for the help, would you know where the ballast resistor is located ?? under the hood by the battery or under the dash ? or mounted on the engine ?? i guess a need a chiltons huh?/thanks again for your help.
Re: 1979 dodge motorhome 440 mike e 7-19-06  
Does it have the ballast resistor.??Some of the older ones would burn open and kill spark.Don't know what year they stoped using it.Might pick up a Chiltons manual for it and read up on it. Good Luck Mike

Re: 1979 dodge motorhome 440 Nathan McBride 7-22-07  
I just recently purchased a 1979 Dodge Tioga Motorhome. It's got the 440 in it. The previous owner says (and it reads) it has 65k on it. It looks that the miles turn over at 99 but to his knowledge it has not. It's in pretty good shape. I was wondering if there are any tips or any advice anyone could give on these and/or if you know where I could find an old manual. I'm very excited about my new home. Thanks - Nathan

Re: 1979 dodge corvair motorhome 440 sue 5-9-15  
The steering box went on my friends 1979 dodge corvair motorhome we cant seem to find a part number to order the part. I've even searched sale ads. The dealership say their books don't do back that far. Also parts stores need to know what size the chassis is but only info I can find is from 1968 to 1978 dodge used the M series but I'm no expert so not sure if this is correct or where else to search.

You put the brake fluid in the master cylinder.its on the frame to the right of the drivers front wheel maybe has a splash guard around it
Re: 1979 dodge motorhome 440 mark 1-27-13  
My friend's RV has brake issues. After replacing the hydroboost, the cylinder compressed, but will not decompress. It is now stuck in this position.
Any good ideas at making this a functional cylinder once again?
And "yes", we used power steering fluid for the hydroboost.
thank you
Re: 1979 dodge motorhome 440 doug 2-23-11  
I just bought all 6 tires for $1050. they are kelly safari-trex. i chose these because they have an aggresive tread which is good for going off road. i got them at tire pros in pomona, ca. just make sure you do your research. good luck.
Re: 1979 dodge motorhome 440 manual pat 1-27-12  
I use Haynes Manual 30065
Dodge & Plymouth vans 1971 thru 2003.
this manual is still in print. all motors.
the motorhome 440 is NOT the same as other
440s. being heavier construction &different length plugs. the 1978 440
was the first with california smog and
electronic distributor.
the 1978 Dodge truck 440 is close enough
if you have that manual
also check chrysler new yorker 383-440
is helpful for vacuum diagrams etc.
as far as electrical systems I use a
generic diagram called RV electrical
system layout. a good tester many times
the 12v grounds lose connection.

Need a repair manual for a 1979 Dodge M-300 (1979 Executive with 440 dodge Motor)
Re: 1979 dodge motorhome 440 Steve 7-4-11  
If you have trouble with your 440, and it has a thermoquad, Listen up. If you bog down or go through a series of lunges when trying to take off, its the spring that raises the metering rod tree gone bad. They get weak and can't overcome the sudden loss of vacuume when you give it gas, it bogs, takes off again, and then repeats itself. I just replaced mine with a stronger spring I had in my garage and it works great now. No more off idle bog, hesitation, or lurching. Whew...
