Can a Chevy 5.7 350 carburetor engine fit in a truck that used a fuel injected engine?
YES BUT RUN A FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR. YOU WILL ALSO HAVE TO HOT WIRE THE FUEL PUMP IF IT IS IN THE TANK.
1986 was the first year for fuel injection and if your truck is fuel injected the pump is mounted on top and inside the fuel tank. If, however it is an early 1986 it may have a mechanical pump mounted on the engine block. Follow the fuel lines backward from the carburetor and you will find the pump.
YES it will fit right in. But now hears the problem that you will have. The 91 is a fuel injected computer controlled engine and the 86 is not. Therefore you would need the entire wiring harness and computer plus the fuel pump that's in the 91 fuel tank. You will run into all kinds of problems trying to get the 91 engine to run in that 86 truck. It would be cheaper and easyer…
Yes you can you will need to find a truck with the Fuel Injected 22R and take the wiring harness, intake plenum, throttle body, distributor, vacuum hoses and switches, Computer and any sensors, as well as anything else that is different between the 2 engine compartments. If you decide to do this take your time, strip the carburated engine down to the block and head then slowly and making sure you label where everything goes…
What type engine should you put into a 1982 Chevy s10 and where in Canada is a good place to get one?
A lot of people have a tendency to over carburet their engines. If this is not a high horse race engine and more of a pickup truck or mild hotrod motor you may want to try sticking with a 600 or 650 CFM carburetor. It really comes down to the details. What type of vehicle and its intended use as well as the engine specifications. Ie.. Cam, heads, etc
