Okay, i dont know if this has been covered, but Im doing a motor swap from an 87 Chevy for a 54 Plymouth. The motor is a 5.0 liter 305 w/ 700r4 trans behind it. I have a few questions on this motor, Im hoping to fire it for the first time in the car tomorrow. 1. How do you install HEI distributor in this SBC? I understand you drop it in, but do you have to set the firing order to #1 cylinder? How do you tell?..What is the firing order on the cap for the wiring, to the plugs? There are 2 wires on the HEI, what do they get hooked to? I believe someone told me one is for tach, the other constant power (with key in the "on" position in the ignition) 2. Alternator - okay, its got the large wire on the back...like battery cable but smaller, and this 3 prong plug on the ("drivers) side of the unit. There are 3 wires in the plug. I read that those wires are not needed, only the "battery-like" cable is used and hooked directly to power to battery for charging. I believe its a "One wire" alternator. 3. Does the battery hook directly to the starter? or daisy chain from the alternator. example: battery cable from postitive post to alternator hookup then to starter. 4. Ground strap/cable. The battery ground goes to the block. then a ground strap to the frame. Where is a good spot for the ground to go on the block? Thanks for the help in advance. I hope to have this thing purring by evening. Maybe the car could have a possibility to make Viva!!!
