Where do i start?
CAN SOMEBODY WALK ME THROUGH THIS?
Year?On my 88 all you have to do is take the glove box off (4 screws)and there it is,just unbolt and pull.
Yup Its An 88... I Knew It Was Simple But I Figured It Would Be Better To Sacrifice A Little Pride Then Spend A Couple Hours Pulling Panels Off By Process Of Elimination.
Hey, while you have your glove box door off -- Can you snap me a picture or two of how the ECM is mounted?
I want to move my TPI ECM over to the glove box side of things, and would be interested in seeing how the general installed the ECM from the factory
Do I dare ask why you are pulling it?
Don't know as I have pictures, GM just uses a piece of beige or white plastic mounted to the underside of the cowl, one metal strap holding the ECM into the plastic piece.
Most of the trucks '81+ have the metal mounting tabs in place already from what I've seen. All the 305's that vintage had ESC IIRC so they needed a mount, but the plastic piece is different. Mounting is the same. Any '81+ CCC truck or '87+ TBI will have the plastic piece you need. The ESC trucks are a crapshoot though for stock mounting points, I believe up to some point the ESC computer was mounted over near the gas pedal.
The tabs are triangular shaped and tack welded to the body. PITA to add I'd think.
i have an 88 k5 blazer... with a 355. i thought it was 4 screws and out. I just need to pull the ecm to send it off to get my prominator setup (yes i am another tbi guy trying pull off 350 hp with a 454 tbi on a 350 and some fuel pressure goodies).
I have one when I did my TPI swap
Prominator? Oh, it's all good then.
Have fun with it!
that shouldn't be a problem.
