Question about 1980 Chevrolet Corvette
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.
