Best complete wiring harness for cj7 350 conversion

I have a 1981 cj7 that my dad bough for my birthday as a project car. The previous owner did a 350 small block carb conversion with an automatic transmission but the wires everywhere especially under the dash are all out of place and old and lots of them not connected. I want a pre terminated wiring harness that replaces ALL of the electrical wiring and will be a not impossible project I'm 16 but I'm good at this stuff.i also wanted to know if a regular wiring harness would be usable with the 350 thanks

If you get a stock pe-terminated harness from Painless for the 81 (I think a lot of years fit this) then you just need to hook up power for the distributor and starter on the 350 to get it running.

There will be extra wires for the gauges depending if you plan on using electric or mechanical gauges.

I don't know enough about newer Chevy Automatic transmission to know if more wires are needed than the NSS and backup.

81 CJ's already have a Delco alternator. Should be no problem there.
