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)

It depends on what the 700r4 came out of. Different vehicles had different length tail shafts. The best thing to do is to measure the length of the two transmissions. You should be able to get a driveshaft shortened for around $150 if you need to do it. Also don't forget to get the vacuum-electric switch and harness for the trans, on the firewall by the heater box.
This will really make a difference in your mileage so give it some serious thought. I replaced a Turbo350 with one and my weekly gas bill went from $100 to about $65-$70. Hope this helps.

most likely a weak fuel pump or a clogged filter. Check fuel pressure with a gauge or as its bogging down spray brake cleaner in the Throttle Body. If this allows it to increase RPM then its the pump or filter.

Check your ignition timing at 3500 rpm you should have about 40 degrees of advance If not, something is sticking in the distributor, either the vacuum or mechanical advance. This will cause a big reduction in fuel economy. Also, check your tire pressure. The cfm on a rochester is really not important. The primary bores are so small and they are the only thing allowing the mixture in most of the time.
