Chev 350 engine swap could use wire info

Hi to all, I am very new to your fourm. 1st thread. If some one could help it would save me time. I have a 1987 jeep wrangler it HAD a 258 inline six with a 5 speed tranny behind it. All that has gone by-by she now has a chev 350 it is a 1984 (i had to go 84 because of my state I/M laws) i have a 700R4 tranny and a 241 short shafted transfer case and as of right now I have just come in from setting my Dana 44 under her the rear end is not bolted up yet but she will be this week end. I forgot the 350 is carb not fuel injected. What I have is a **** load of wires from the engine comp if some one could please narrow it down as in color or any other markings. I need the Eng temp, Eng oil and I will need a good wire for the HEI dist then of course the power leaks off the starter if some one could tell me how to find it or MAYBE have a copy of it. Please let me know

chilton, haynes, alldata.take your pick.
or you could try to search i guess.....

seriously, not one of us here know what wires you are dealing with. there is no telling what wires have been cut/removed/added/corroded etc etc etc.
cant be that hard though, i put a tbi motor in my junk and got it running!

Wires are no big deal I was just looking for a short cut. It is easy to find the correct wire for the senders you don't need any manuals I was just hoping some one had the info handy. Thanks

I can't help you on the gauges, but all you need is a hot wire to the coil. I've had old beaters, with every wire gutted. I just run a toggle, and push button for the start, and flip the toggle for shut down.

Thats if you don't want to go through the ignition. (real big short cut!)
