There is a black with white stripe wire on the right side of your firewall on an 11 pin connector, there are 2 of them connect the box to 1 and ecu to the other, here's a pic, notice the bundle of wires by the plastic container.

Its been almost a year and I'm still working on the car.  The motor and trans are in and I sorted out the wiring, I need to make sure it starts and put on the accessory drive and radiator.  Then I can start making it look good

I am in the process of swapping my FB, its in great shape and I was fortunate to find the swap parts and motor cheap.  It will be expensive to upgrade the handling, but I bought the car to be a project ao I dont mind

Have you tried bleeding the cooling system? Could have a bad air bubble giving you issues, also do you have a trace of the cam and crank sensor and timing compared to rpm?

How did you end up wiring it?

How'd the car do on the track?  and did you ever find a fix for melting the seals?  I would try wrapping the manifolds and maybe fabbing a sheetmetal  heat deflector over the box

I am actually using one of the Powermaster one wire alternators.  My swap is Mopar so I suppose that I can't really be of much help to you

Are you running a battery isolation switch?  Sometimes the one wire alternators will be warm/hot when attached directly to the battery and the car is not running.  But I know many of them also have internal switching to prevent this.

Are you trying to flow more fuel? I would spend the money and put a larger pump or a second pump in parallel

I've always ran the output of the alternator direct to the battery, battery should be able to take the amperage

What motor do you have? I would think the ecu adjusts fueling for a cold start should be able to find the pin on the ecu and then run a wire.  I thought all the purple wire does is the signal for the solenoid though but I may be wrong

looks like quite the project, good idea on getting that motor sold.  are you looking to do carbd or injected? and what trans a manual or auto.  I know the T5 and T56 fit but it can be a bit tricky getting the t5 to fit...ask me how I know

Life has taken over but I finally made some progress.  I was able to modify and weld my oil pan and have attached the clutch.  I need to find a new bellhousing or make an adapter though I have  a 94 camaro T5 with the ford bolt pattern and my current bellhousing has the old GM pattern.

Great job! Do you have power steering? Trying to figure out how to keep PS on my 85 GSL with an LT1

Made some progress, pulled the rotary, getting the LT1 in a few days and modifying the oil pan.  I will be sorting wiring in the mean time and finishing building my T5.

Nice clean build. I assume that chassis is rust free?
