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 or 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. :)

When I replaced ignition switch in a 2000 buick centery I stll cannot get power to starter and power windows ,gas guage and radio don't work

Sounds like the Ignition switch wasn't the problem, check your fuse links at starter, they are soft fuseable wire that will burn if shorted or even when they get old over time they will go bad. they are the smaller like #10-12 ga. wire , should be at least 1 maybe 2 of them at harness connection to starter.

I can't find the main ground in my 98 buick lesabre. Can anyone help?

Unless I am missing your question, there is no main ground.
The battery cable is grounded to the engine and the engine has a ground cable back to the body or frame. That cable may also have a smaller wire going to a body ground. The car uses the body to connect ground cables to for components to get power back to the battery.

2004 buick rendezvous sometimes won't start. clicks but won't turn over. replaced starter, battery, and ignition switch. what now??

We just went through this with our 2003 Rendevous. Clicking like crazy but wouldn't start. Replaced the starter but still doing the same thing. Our next step was going to be replace the battery (which tested well) and the ignition assembly. Out of frustration, I hit the top of the hood and the headlights came on!! Further investigaton proved that the problem was a corroded ground wire on the battery. Hope this helps

I have a 2002 Buick Rendevzeous. Sometimes the driver side low beam works, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't, the turn signal won't blink. It just stays dimmly lit. Right now, the low beam...

You have a bad electrical connection. Check the wiring harness and both sides of it's connectors for corrosion and or breakage. The connector terminals will become worn and corroded and the wiring sheaths a prone to weathering and become brittle. Replace or clean as needed.
