What year is this engine? and ci


From this chart - I think you may be misreading the number - 3970010 is possibly the actual number: Which makes the engine pretty old 68-72 350 V8 - 4 bolt main. I included past this number so that you can see that the number you posted doesn't actually exist. And thus my conclusion that the 9 is most likely a 0. Hope this helps. 3970010 350 69 Corvette late 69,4 bolt main 3970010 302 69 Camaro Z/28,Late 69, 4 bolt main 3970010 350 69-79 Truck 2&4 bolt main 3970010 350 69-79 Pass,Chevelle,Camaro,Nova,MonteCarlo 2&4 bolt main 3970010 350 70 Corvette 300,350,370 HP 4 bolt main 3970010 350 71 Corvette 270,330 HP 4 bolt main 3970010 350 72 Corvette 200,255 HP 4 bolt main 3970014 350 69-77 Pass,Chevelle,Camaro, Nova,MonteCarlo 2 or 4 bolt main 3970014 350 69-79 Truck 2 or 4 bolt main 3970014 350 72 Corvette late &undefined;72,200 HP,255HP 4 bolt main 3970020 307 68-73 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova 3970020 307 69-73 Truck 3970024 307 69-73 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova,Truck 3992386 327 68-69 Pass,Chevelle,Camro, Nova,Truck Large Jounal

Can the small cable going to the starter be splice back together


solder the new connector/cable will work.
anything else corrodes .
u can use high temp rtv silicone sealant to cover some of the connector or wire .
if you use a flame be safe. u'll put ur eye out

How to bypass an immobiliser


This car doesn't have a factory alarm / immobiliser, so normally you look for the control unit, if its hidden then look for the siren and follow the wires to get to the control box, now you have to follow the wiring to see where they have spliced into the car's own wiring, etc, the ignition switch wiring is normally interupted to provide a live feed to the control box and also the starter circuit is spliced to stop the car's starter motor from working, basically follow the alarm control wiring back to where it attache's to the car's own wiring and take of the alarm control unit's wiring and rejoin the car's own wiring together, ie the starter circuit maybe mauve with a black trace, you may find its been cut and 2 other wire's run from them, take off the 2 wire's and join the mauve /black trace back together , and so on, good luck.

I have a problem with the wireing on a 1971 nova,i have no juice to the fuse box,no lights,dash lights ect. and no juice to the ignition switch,it is all dead


more than likely the power wire coming from the starter is bad, they have inline fusable links built into the power wires coming from the starter, make sure these are all hooked up and the links are not burnt. A service manual/haynes, etc will give you schematics and link locations

Need help w/ '76 Nova, won't start, messd up sumthing electrical.


Check the fuse or fuses to the starting circuit. I would recommend to take the switch off the dashboard and check the wires, you might have a live wire shorting your lights and buzzer.

Your neutral safety switch rarely goes bad, and when it does, usually lets you know (you have to wiggle the shifter).

Let me know how it went. Good Luck

79 chevy k10 starter problems


Fusible Links

The engine compartment wiring harness has several fusible links. The same size wire with a special hypalon insulation must be used when replacing a fusible link.
The links are located in the following areas:
  1. A molded splice at the starter solenoid Bat terminal, a 14 gauge red wire.
  2. A 16 gauge red fusible link at the junction block to protect the unfused wiring of 12 gauge or larger wire. This link stops at the bulkhead connector.
  3. The alternator warning light and field circuitry is protected by a 20 gauge red wire fusible link used in the battery feed to voltage regular #3 terminal. The link is installed as a molded splice in the circuit at the junction block.
  4. The ammeter circuit is protected by two 20 gauge fusible links installed as molded splices in the circuit at the junction block and battery to starter circuit.
Other things it MIGHT be are the ignition switch, located on top of the steering column:

The other thing it MIGHT be is a faulty ignition cylinder (where your key goes into to start the K10).

Check the wire harness on the steering column also.

71 nova will not start


take a look at the wires on the top of your starter,

there should be a big main battery cable there, a small start wire, and a couple of fusible links.

the fusible links provide power to the rest of the vehicle, they are designed to fail if there is a short in the system, you can purchase fusible link at your local parts house it comes in a small roll, do not use regular wire for the repair you need the fire protection offered by the special link.

350 Chevy starter wiring diagram needed this engine has a points style distributer there are 3 wires plus the large battery cable Solinoid Power Alt Output Ign Switch Start THANKS


IF YOU HAVE A POINTS TYPE DISTRIBUTER, THE WIRING WILL BE: TO ENERGIZE THE STARTER SOLENOID A LARGE, ABOUT A NUMBER 12 OR 14 GAUGE WIRE WILL GO TO THE INNER MOST SMALL TERMINAL ON THE STARTER SOLENOID. IT MAY BE PURPLE IN COLOR. THE SECOND SMALLER WIRE SHOULD GO TO THE OUTER SOLENOID TERMINAL AND GO FROM THERE TO THE + TERMINAL ON THE IGNITION COIL. THIS IS FOR BY PASSING THE RESISTOR WIRE FROM THE STARTER IGNITION SWITCH. THE LARGER BATTERY CABLE WILL GO TO THE UPPER TERMINAL ON THE STARTER SOLENOID. THERE MAY BE AN ADDITIONAL BATTERY FEED WIRE TAKE OFF FROM THE STARTER BATTERY TERMINAL POST ON THE SOLENOID FOR OTHER ACCESSORIES. THIS TYPE OF SYSTEM (POINTS TYPE) WAS TYPICALLY DONE AWAY WITH IN 1975 WHEN THE HEI DISTRIBUTOR CAME OUT.
