I think what he is trying to say is that in all three gears there is a window of 5mph in which each of these gears that it will shutter. Not just a specific mph range just that it happens for roughly a 5mph increment of time. Not that it shifts thru all 3 gears in a single 5mph range and shutters
Precisely!

to bypass the starter relay POWER the large BROWN wire on the relay - if the starter turns over the relay is bad - if it dont the starter is bad

I'd disconnect all the cable connections including the grounds you checked and make sure they're dry.  There is a starter relay on the firewall, but if the lights are dimming, it likely means it's working and connecting the circuit to the starter (which is the main power draw). I'll guess most likely the starter got pretty wet and is culprit. I'd definitely remove it, dry it, bench test it.

Also, can you turn the engine by hand? Locked up engine is another thought too

If the battery is good, cables and connections at the battery are the next logical places to look.

Vehicle Help / 87 won't crank, clicking like dead battery
« Last post by crossy on Today at 12:31:13 PM »
I am trying to start an 87 dodge gasser that I just picked up. 318,Auto, The battery is brand new, and fully charged, when I  try to start it I get a loud, continuous clicking as if a dead battery. The headlights look very dim also, and yes I have checked the grounds, All 3 of them coming off Neg. side of the battery.
 I did powerwash the  engine bay and some of the engine. On a Mopar Is it common for the solenoid to ground out or a certain relay when water is introduced? Thanks for any help.

Vielen dank. Dus hast auch ein paar schőner projekte {cool} 

I hope I still have most of the parts, after all it was a running truck ;D
Unless you happen to have a borgeson steering shaft lying around.....

Haven't done too much lately, just some small bits and pieces. First I need to fix my welder. The 0,6mm wire is getting stuck constantly. No problems with the 0,8mm wire so I used that until now. However for the thin sheetmetal on the cab and inner fenders I need really low amps, so better off with thin wire....

Pic's added for nostalgic reasons ;)

One of the biggest Mopar TBI issue items, is the hall effect pickup (the sensor inside the dizzy). I have had them fail while driving, but mostly they will cause a no start condition, and not give any codes. With a 1/4" wrench, and a Phillips bit inside it, you can squeeze behind the dizzy, to change the pickup, without having to mess with the dist, and having to redo the timing.

A Good GPS.

I was thinking along those same lines but I was going to throw in an ignition module and computer.  Alternator sounds good to me too.  Satellite phone is real good idea.
