My condolences...I hope your search is easier than mine.
This is just a guess, but I'm betting the harness will be the same.
Very little of it actually goes to the engine--just the wires to the
alternator, starter, and to the distributor.
Of course, I don't know whether you're dealing with TBI (I assume you
are) in which case you'll probably need a harness that has the same
setup, computer wise.
How did it happen?
Hmm...if there's any of the existing harness left, I'd try to make note
of the various connectors attached to its ends. Then if you locate one
it should be fairly easy to check whether it'll fit.
I don't know how similar your truck is to my Blazer (If it's a Suburban
or Blazer should be real similar) but mine has a couple of harnesses
coming out of the firewall. One goes from the ESC (electronic spark
control) to the distributor and the other runs to the heat/AC box from
the dash controls. The heater harness was fairly easy to find, but the
ESC was not. I got the main engine harness from Shades here on
"alt.autos.4x4.chevy-trucks" from an '85 Suburban he was parting out
and it was identical in every way.
Is yours a pickup or Suburban? I can be on the lookout. I'm always
looking for parts for mine and often run across stuff I don't need.
True... However he said it burned. That meant an engine fire and not
an electrical problem in my case. Could've been a fuel leak, he wasn't
specific in his post.
Obviously it's possible, but what kind of electrical failure has to
occur in order to smoke the whole harness? I'm actually asking, not
mocking :-) I'm curious to know just to have it stored in my memory
If your newsreader doesn't display in a spanning tree format, maybe
you're the problem.
NO...we would not... if you're incapable of reading through a thread of
10 total messages, then someone else's newsreader is not at fault.
Your 1st grade teacher may be to blame though. If you absolutely must
bitch, please email the folks at Google and tell them to add "QUOTE on
REPLY" to THEIR software, as I have nothing loaded on my machine. Get
off my ass.
He said, "I have a 1990 chev. 4wd 454."
That doesn't indicate whether it's a Blazer, Suburban or pickup.
If you had read all the way through, you'd notice that the OP never
indicated which MODEL he is driving. This is even more annoying seeing
as how you'd already chimed in once in this thread, and yet the 2nd
time around you seem clueless as to the content found within. Is your
memory that short?
By the way your little comment.....
"The First Phase of your project Shud be to FIX the REASON it SMOKED !
The Harness Didnot Smoke itself, Something Caused it to SMOKE"
.....does not in any way address his question.
Again, since you're obviously incapable of reading properly, his
question was "Will a harness from a 350 work?".
Did you answer "yes", "no" or "maybe"??? Because I at least attempted
to help the guy... He didn't ask why it smoked...in fact, he didn't
say it smoked, he said it was burned. Smoked indicates electrical
failure, burned implies fire.

If you don't like the way I respond to posts, or your newsreader is set
in such a way as to confuse you, or you are too lazy to read the rest
of the thread to find out what's going on, then just don't post.
Why should I download All 200,000 post in a newsgroup EVERY DAY just So
that you can Cut the original post off your Answer !
I already Read the original post a Week ago, and this is True of 100
other original post, But No one can remember What the original QUESTION
was for EVERYONE on them!
See if this is similar to what you need...
