    I have a 1980 Turbo Trans Am. I have replaced the blown motor with a 355 sbc. I cannot figure out which wire coming out of the fuse box powers the system, or where it should go. I know this is very basic, but I am missing this information. I have a schematic of the wiring, but it shows 4 red wires, to go tho the alternator, the other 2??? which 2 go where? Anybody know?? The jackleg mechanic before had the wiring all F?@Ked up. HELP!!

    Only diagram i could find was for a 1979....

    shows power comes from the battery to the starter solenoid straight down through a fuseable link to a junction where it splits off... if you go straight down it goes right over to the fuse box. You can see the fuses on the right all have the common (+) to them.
