I hate to double post but after 5 days in the 79 forum I got no hits and I know this is an easy question for you motor guys I started gutting the wiring in the bucket today as I cut into the dash for the cage. Does anyone know what wiring is "required" for a 79 K5 to run. I have about removed anything factory over the buildup period. I am going to replace all the wiring but ONLY need the minimum. I am going to run a aluminum dash with a minimum of gauges, none of them factory, so I think it would be easier to rewire everything instead of splicing factory. Just planning on a tach,water temp, oil pressure and trans temp guage. I already have dual batteries in the rear to a shutoff switch and then a distribution block from there to run electic fans and accessories so really the only thing I currently have on the factory system is the ignition switch and starter. The starter will be wired to a switched power push button on the dash and I am installing an aftermarket fuse panel/relay board in the dash. I have a no factory lights. So long story short what wiring is need to get a 400sbc carbed and a th350 to come alive?
