    Howdy all,
    I bought a 1990 Suburban recently with no engine or transmission. I have installed a new engine and transmission. My problem is I have no roadmap or guide to reconnectng all of the wiring, emission control equipment, vacuum lines, accessory brackets, etc. Does anyone out there have detailed pictures, or links to sites with pictures, of the engine bay. All of the conventional manuals (Haynes, Chilton, etc.) are woefully inadequate in guiding this extensive reconnection process.

    Your best bet is a "stare and compare" situation. Make friends with someone that has a similar truck and park it next to yours. You can then stare and compare for those connections that you can't figure out on your own. Good luck, and document the info and post it here so that all can benefit from your experience.

    I have a 2wd 350 in my 90. I could take some pics, but it may take a little bit.

    i have found the Pick-n-pull university is worth the $2 cost on these issues. i look at a few of the same type vehicle and write notes and take a few picks if there is no one around (cell phones have made it easier) other than that a good chevy service manual is worth the $30 as well....mike
