can anyone tell me how to wire a carbed engine? i have recently swapped out my 4cylinder motor for a 302. i decided to take the wiring harness out and start from scratch, what would be the best way to go about wiring this motor back up.Please help if you can, it will be very much appreciated. thanks

which year.. as the wiring does vary slightly..

how much of the harness did you remove? just unbolted from the bulk head connector .. or like some people.. the whole nine yards?

what kind of components are you putting back in.    like ignition system.. charging system.. starter...

do you still have the engine harness..   as you might save some time... by carefully removing the tape and over wrap...  identifying the wires to what they go to.  this way you you can attach them to the new motor..

you will probably want to study the wiring diagrams from earlier models  85 models were 4 bbl carbed  versions..
