What does the tag on the stabilizer say ?\nThat motor looks to me like a 440. If the distributor is in front toward the radiator, it's either a 440 or 413. If the distributor is in the rear it's a 318.\n\nDoes the Travco have disc or drum front brakes ? Post a picture of the front of it. Yes the charging system is through the amp Guage.\nBTW the AMP gauges rarely work and even when they do they are worthless. I put an Autometer voltage gauge in my Travco.

The ammeter was a weak point on the 73 and earlier Dodge platforms. The shunt resistor built into the ammeter burns out leaving you stranded. Dodge changed the design in 74 that uses a short section of wire in the alternator charge wire as a shunt monitor for the ammeter which is actually a millivolt meter. All modern day ammeters are based on the remote shunt design.\n\nDave
