    i would think anything 82-86 would do.

    the only thing that would be different would be ac truck. As far as i know.

    what engine? 350? My 85 K10 came with a 305, but anyways there are extra plugs going into the dist-cap for a computer in the dash. And as far as I know they changed in 87 when they went to FI. I couldn't find the engine wiring harness for my 85 and GM discontinued it.

    Original engine was a 350, tranny was a 700 and the burb does have a/c. This is the burb that I got for a couple hundred bucks and will be putting it on my 75 frame with a SBC/TH350. But when the PO pulled the motor he just started cutting wires :mad: :mad: :mad: so I need to replace the harness.

    If your switching frame and engine you won't have to worry about what I"m talking about.

    But for the lighting harness I think could use any 81-91, or atleast 81-87
    As for the engine any 73-86with A/C if you want it. Seemed like to me when I was looking at the Junkyard for wiring harnesses that all the 73-84s I saw where all the same. I'm yet to see a 85-86 in the junkyard. Also I didn't see one decent wiring harness in the junkyards here, they were all chopped up.
