    You should have the wiring diagram for the donor vehicle to be sure.
    It would help if you had mentioned what model and engine too.
    I looked for 1987 Chevy wiring diagrams online, and the info was poor.
    Most showed a Black wire for the ground (very common GM color for ground).
    Red is commonly Power.
    Brown with a White stripe may be switched relay power.
    Fuel pumps should run through a relay due to the high amperage draw.
    Here is one I found.
