New to SBC V8 - Vacuum / Electrical
Hi everyone. I'm new to the board. My name is david-b, and have been involved in the import scene for just over 6 years. I've rebuilt my fair-share of motors (all 4 cyl), been at the drag strip and numerous AuotX events. I ended up parting out my project Eagle Talon ESi-T after I got tired with the whole car mechanics, and then found a great deal on a 75 Monte Carlo with a SBC 400. The motor was already pulled and torn down to the block and had quite a few performance parts included in the purchase, that included a high rise intake, aluminum heads, dual timing chain (not sure if that's the proper name), a cam, a Demon double pumper 4bbl, and much more.
I've been putting it all back together and it's coming a long pretty smoothly. I've got the heads on and will be adjusting the valves tonight. The body is almost ready to get the motor dropped back in.
The previous owner just cut the wires so there's no connectors on most of them. I'm pretty happy that there's much fewer wires on these than there are especially when wiring standalone ECUs such as MegaSquirt, so it should go pretty smoothly. However, does anyone have a wiring diagram for this car? Been searching all over with no luck.
Lastly, I'm trying to find a diagram for vacuum lines. I have no clue on where the line from the distributor goes to and many others. Again, everything was just cut at time of removal, so it's like starting from scratch. Are there any diagrams or pics that people have to show me? The intake has much fewer places for vacuum that the stocker did (still have all stock parts as well) so not really sure where everything goes.
I appreciate any help and look forward to posting more here.
