Wiring for a small block 350

I've mounted a Chevy SB350 into a 1950 dodge. Now, I need to re-wire it. I forgot how all the wiring went. I want as little wiring as possible. I have the fuse box from the donor vehicle. I just need the engine to turn on and off. I just ned a diagram of the flow from ignition to starter, altinator, battery, etc.

Need to know if its a HEI cap and rotor or not. HEI caps have the coil built into them , an all in one ignition as compared to a external cylindrical coil.
you need to know that. either the distributor cap is a huge hurken thing (HEI) or it has an external coil somewhere or the cap has a ninth distributor hole in the middle of the cap to put a coil. wire.
after you figure out which one it is then you have to either go to www.autozone.com and study chevy wiring or buy a haynes manual for the similar vintage engine. for the external coil I would try a chilton manual for a chev truck before 1972. for HEI anytime thereafter. I may be off by a few years on the age of the engine. but hopefully you got an idea of what to do, or just google chev engine wiring? and study away.
good luck

Do the engine mounts of a 1991 Isuzu trooper line up to a 350 chevy small block? Mainly can I remove a 1991 trooper engine and swap in a small block 350 chevy crate engine?


no, its not a drop in fit. rice car with usa engine.
but anything can fit, of you have tools and the skills
measure, cut , weld., and cash to buy adapter kits.
engine mist fit more than mounts
it must fit to the transmission.
why not join a real forum on Isusu, we dont have a custom cars section here, "no organization all here, more blog like here , and useless:
one of the many, ever google "isuzu forum'" hark a revelation.
http://www.planetisuzoo.com/

lots more, and many have swap sections, really Ive never seen a real forum not have swaps section, but where you are now.

Own 1983 buick regal, 3.8 L v6- want to install a 350 smallblock.Is this feasible? The 3.8 is a lemon, and it's very difficult to get parts for the motor.


Depends on which 3.8 you have because there were two avaliable in that car .One was the buick 231 cubic in and the distributor was on the fron of the engine.The other was the chevy 229 cubic inch engine and the distibutor was in the back just like on the small block v8.If you have the buick motor be prepared to swap everything including wiring harness and transmission.If you have the chevy v6 it not so bad but you will really need a donor car(monte carlo,cutlas,lemans)with a 305 or 350 for the wiring harness ,radiator shroud ( shorter on the v8) ,a/c lines (longer on the v8).Years ago I had a lemans wagon with the chevy 3.8 that i put a Monte Carlo ss motor in and it looked like it came with it.bought a wrecked mc( hit in the rear) and swapped everything.Including coil springs and sway bars front and rear.And yes the SS 15 inch wheels too! It was a real cool sleeper.Miss that car.

How to install 350 chevy frame mounts in a 1985 chevy impala


The 1985 Impala came standard with the Chevrolet 305 V8. All Chevrolet small block V8's from 265 cubic inches to 400 cubic inches from 1957 to about 1989 used the same block with almost no difference in the castings, so the motor mounts should fit from one block to the next. If you are trying to swap in a 350 newer than 1989, then the motor mounts are different, and you will have to have them fabricated by a local welder, machine shop, or perhaps the best, a local short-track race car driver/builder. Those guys can build anything.

You can do this on a temporary basis, but you need to find the wire. Try running from the ignition switch run side to the dist. at least you can turn it off.
