Question about Cars & Trucks
The 47 buick's had a "fireball 248 I8 engine"
If you removed a V8 engine, then someone else had already removed the stock engine.
If that were the case, just hook up the new engine like the old one was.
Bottom line is this can be a fun project.
No BS from vacuum lines and the million wires can all go away.
I'm not sure where you live and what kind of car scene you have around there, but if there are places where car guys hang out, look for the classics.
Here, we have the nifty 50's car club. Everything from a 1930 ford to 1970's muscle. Some stock and some custom mod.
Just engage them in conversation and have a look at how simple and basic the wiring is.
For a DIY project, hit summitracing.com or jegs.com and look at the "painless wiring" section.
You can pick up a new fuse box with complete wiring, and they walk you through the process.
If you want to keep your focus on engine wiring, all you have to deal with is ignition, starter, battery, and distributor.
I wish I could get my hands into this project with ya. (bring it to houston man)
Feel free to send me updates on this project and I'll talk you through as much as I can. :)
