    IF i am thinking right your truck has two positive battery cables hooked to battery? one goes to starter and other goes across top of radiator to power distribution box and from there to alternator. this was way 1/2 ton trucks were in that year not positive on the 1tons. if someone has replaced the cable some aftermarket cables had a pigtail hanging off to hook other wires into. if it is original wiring that is fusible link and may have burned up look in same area for other end of wire.

    ok looking further into your truck your battery wire on alternator goes straight to the battery with a fusible link this appears to be wire you are refering too. the back of alternator has a stud on back for this wire to bolt onto it should say batt or have a + sign. describe what problem your having and maybe i can help narrow down your trouble

K5 454 going into 2004 chevy silverado hard wire diagram

Assuming this is a street truck there are going to be problems with this conversion. The best source for wiring diagrams is it is a pay service but is what dealerships us. I'm not sure how much the computer controlled transmission relies on data from the engine computer. This may be an expensive conversion if it is even possible.
