Any auto parts store should carry them. Chrysler used the same parts on most of their set ups back then. My 76 Travco with a 440 uses the same voltage regulator, ignition module, ballast resistor as my Slant 6 pick up. Pick up coil for the distributor might be different but it has been a long time since I have had to change one of those (as in the last time was on a 77 Charger back in 87).

Thanks for the quick response. I will check out the auto parts store.

The parts store will not have it listed under the Motor home chassis unless you go to NAPA. You can find the parts anywhere else by telling them a Dodge D300 of the same year with the same engine.

ok thanks for the good advice. Actually I posted my engine size wrong...it is not a 318...it is the 413.

For the 413 you may have to tell them a Dodge D500. Most of the 440 parts for a D300 should work also but there are some difference
