Well black wire should be your earth wire. But are you going from window motor to car or from car to window motor?

SOURCE: 2009 chevy expres trailer wiring harness

Ask dealer if it has a towing package on it. If it does, you usually just pop fuse in under hood for electric brakes, and harness to adapt into is usually near or at rear bumper. Even if it doesn't have brake wire, you should still be able to install adapter at rear,for lights etc. which is available from dealer or auto supply places, then you may have to run electric brakes separate.

SOURCE: fuel pump not getting power

First check the fuel pump relay the easiest fast way of doing it is turn your key forward and listen for a click. If you hear a click then you might have hooked something up wrong on the pump or the plug that plugs into the fuel pump on top of the tank is not seated all the way down.

(If you bought a rebuild kit and not the whole fuel pump assembly)

As for the fuel pump only two wires go to it a red one which is positive and a black one that is neg. And it's marked on the top of the pump.

SOURCE: need to attach new electric temp. switch/sensor where aftermarket mechanical one is installed

The factory wire to the factory gauge is a solid green wire. that year truck the sending unit usually mounted in the drivers side cylinder head but i have seen some in the passanger side if they have cut the wire and you can goto the main harness connector under the brake master cylinder and booster and find the only solid dark green wire and follow it forward to see how far it back they cut then just splice and run it to your new sending unit . If you want to check to make sure the gauge works after you find the solid green wire put it to a ground and the gauge should go to hot if it does not you have a bad gauge or a cluster wireing in side the truck and that is why they put the aftermarket gauge in .

Can a Chevy 305 engine bolt in place of a 1985 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme 307 engine?


Yes and no.
Yes it could bolt in place, but it could take a lot of work changing every thing over.
Exhaust, transmission, wiring, cooling, and so on.
Probably nothing except the crossmember would be the same for both engines.

1985 chevy c20 vacuum problems


on this truck the vacuum is pretty basic, im guessing you have a 305 (5.0) or a 350 (5.7), on the front of the engine compartment near the fan shroud somewhere (if it is still intact) you should have a diagram of all the vac lines
you probably have a quadrajet carb, if you are mechanical and patient they are not hard to rebuild

blowing out the carb with carb and choke cleaner isnt a bad idea either, have someone keep it running and slowly run like 1/4 to 1/2 a can down the carb spraying all around

1981 chevy pickup with a carburated 305 is hard starting, runs rough and when warmed up runs fine.......have replaced two carbs and the problem still exists......the carb im using now is a factory rebuilt...


Is the choke operating properly? You say the current carb has an electric choke, so I am assuming the original carb did not have an electric choke. If that's the case, have you wired the electric choke to a power supply?

Installing 85 Iroc 305 into 57 Chevy; need wiring diagram to create EFI harness from car harness


Check out faxonautoliterature.com. They have an assortment of literature that should be able to get you up and running. There are original GM dealer service manuals for both vehicles which would have complete wiring diagrams. They list a separate wiring diagram book for the Camero. They have 2 different books on swapping newer GM engines into older GM vehicles. I've used them before and had excellent service. Hope this helps.

My 1985 chevy 305 gets 4mi to the gallon


Check your ignition timing at 3500 rpm you should have about 40 degrees of advance If not, something is sticking in the distributor, either the vacuum or mechanical advance. This will cause a big reduction in fuel economy. Also, check your tire pressure. The cfm on a rochester is really not important. The primary bores are so small and they are the only thing allowing the mixture in most of the time.

Chevy 305 small-block engine runs good has a bad idle and dies when idling. I used a 350 intake and ignition system and put onto the 305 and need to know what to look for to make idle


if this is a fuel injected engine youll most likely have to replace the idle speed control sensor this should solve that problem.youll have to get one for the intake that you put in the car(one for the year and engine size of the replacement parts)

No fire from coil


If you pull the distributor cap of and look near the rear of the distributor base there should be a small half moon shaped peice with prongs on each side that plug in (the amount of prongs varies by vehicle) this is your ignition module and is probably the cause of your problems. quite common with this vintage of vehicle. Thanks fo using fixya. good luck!!
