If you aren't using the ECM, you will need to run a pre-ECM (non- mixture solenoid and TPS) Q-Jet and distributor, used mostly '80-back except for some newer truck-type apps.

That may be the case. I can't speak for all of them, but I bought an '86 engine from a Sierra that was a non-feedback, non TPS-type carb, just as you suggest. Distributor was the early-style non-ECM unit, too.

It was your question of the rich condition being due to the solenoid not being hooked up that led me to believe you had a car engine possibly w/the feedback carb. That's why I said to look for a carb from "'80-back except for some newer truck-type apps.".

Bottom line- Q-Jet w/solenoid will not run w/o computer without a lot of work on the carb. Enough so, that I never have bothered w/doing anything except using a non-FB carb and dist. to match.

Good luck.
