Are you needing advice, links, tricks, or all of the above?
If it's advice you want:
If you are not buying an after market harness and all of the oem wiring is intact replace one wire at a time from the component all the way back to the fuse box. Its tedious but, it's a sure fire way to get it right the first time.

Secondly, I'd by a haynes manual or some other wiring diagram. Study it for at least a couple weeks or until you are completely comfortable taking on the task.

Color code your wires and label both the old and new ones with paper tape and a permanent marker so that you know what each one is for.

Last but not least, make sure that the battery is disconnected... ;o)

SOURCE: 1980 El camino three speed, having a sudden loss

Try replacing the ignition module and check the pick-up coil for broken wires. The wires on these pick-up coils are solid and after years of use can break inside of the insulation. Also check the vacuum advance hose for cracks and the unit for proper function. The vacuum advance pulls the pick-up coil and rotates it to advance the timing causing the wires to break. To change the pick-up coil you will have to pull the distributer out of the engine and disassemble it, meaning that you will have to remove the gear from the bottom and pull the shaft out which may not be easy because of years of grime build-up inside of the distributer housing. Also check the vacuum modulator on the transmission (the cylinder looking thing that the vacuum line from the engine connects to) for trans fluid in the line and being sucked into the engine. Usually when its bad you'll notice white smoke coming from the tailpipe.

Rewiring entire 1971 el camino interior and under the hood

Wow, quite an undertaking. I had an '81 El Camino and wish I had never sold it. Originally it had a 267 c.i. V-8 with a Rochester 2bbl carb. I put in a Chevy 350 4-bolt main crate engine, Edelbrock intake and carb, and Hedmann headers (it ran like a scalded dog LOL). My advice is to look for a Haynes manual covering the '71 model year. They have complete wiring diagrams in their manuals, but the wire routing will be up to you. Good luck.

How do i replace the dashboard light bulb for a 1985 el camino

you need to disconnect the speedometer then remove the 6 or 8 screws that hold the instrument panel to the dash.if its an automatic you will have to unhook the shift indicator cable from the shift colume.then pull the instrument panel out of the dash,turn the panel upside down and you will see the bulb sockets.replace all the bulbs at this time so you won`t have to do this again for another bulb.when hooking up the shift indicator cable make sure it indicates the properly selected gear when moving the shifter to each gear position.

You will need to pull the speedometer out and have the odometer (u call mileage counter) repaired, the little drive gear that comes off the speedometer to operate the odometer has failed or broken.
