Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500
Yes it could but it could also be a resistance in the positive cables,,,, one way to check if the earths are bad is to attach a jump lead from the body of the starter to the negetive of the battery thus giving a good earth to the starter body directly,,, make sure not to short positive to negetive as this will get dangerous and cause fire or burns to yourself,,, if this starts the car you then inspect the earths from the battery to the engine and chassis,,,,if this doesnt work check that on the small terminal of the starter that you are getting a power supply constantly when the ignition is turned to start position as a faulty ignition switch can also cause this,,,, positive heavy cables from the battery can also get faulty so check these for good connection but be careful at all times not to cause a short as these are high power and can do alot of harm to you and your car

Your friend is Right. I assume that your 350 is the Older style and NOT Injected? Holley Carb Maybe? If so there is no Problem Grounding to the Chassis-If So, its a Whole different Ballgame. Some Computer Chips and Boards will "Fry" if this is not done Correctly! Message me back and let me know if it is or Not

Ground connection is in the harness that goes to the pump. If you locate the proper wire, you can re-ground it, or trace it back to where it originates to determine why it is not seeing ground. I generally run extra ground wires to both fenders, block and firewall of any vehicles I own, just to ensure that grounding is not lost.

The only thing you have not checked is a solenoid starter. This culprit is a small cylinder one on top of your starter in the attached images. If you don't want to replace the solenoid starter at 43 bucks, you can rebuild it with a repair kit at 1 buck. I have 2 images here for you reference. Good luck.

Put a new ring terminal on the end of the wire and then refasten it to the body where ever it will reach.You might have to remove a fender bolt or fasten it to the rad support,make sure where ever you chose is free of paint by sanding or scrapping it first.The wire that broke off is a body ground,so fasten it to a clean part of the body,not the engine.

You can't change the intakes on it. The 1995 throttle body and the efi that they used on the 96 up are totally differant. In 1996 when they went to the vortec motors they changed the heads. the 96 up only have 8 bolts to bolt the intake to the motor and are totally differant angles on the bolt holes. the 87-95 centerbolt head motors had 12 bolts to hold the intake down. Also the 96 should be odb 2 by government compliance. 95 was a split year but 96 up should be odb 2. If you do a search online you should be able to find the new injector or alot of time you can just get the poppets.Either way in the long run you will be better off fixing what is the rather than trying to convert.
