Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
What vehicle is the engine coming from, or is it a rebuilt engine?
If it is still a small block with a distributor, that makes it easy.
You can ditch the TBI, and run what you have now.
Please understand that all of the people on here are people not robots.
They need to sleep, they are not on here 24 hrs a day, just like an email, you may not get immediate response. Especially if the tech is halfway around the world from you.
Works the same in reverse. I don't expect an answer ftom a customer in 5 minutes.
Now, TBI is Throttle body injection. Being out of 1995 truck it probably has that.
You can swap your entire intake and carb etc when you do the engine swap.
You can run a coil in cap HEI distributor if you like, a little less work to do.
The rest should be straight forward.
Ok, wishing you all the best.
I will opt out now.

i would like to change your mind on the service you received before
i will not leave you hanging and will be here right now until you are 100 % satisfied
Gary, you might not run into someone right away who knows exactly what you need, that can be less than spectacular. I am a Chevy pro, I know exactly what you need to do.
It will bolt in. You HAVE to use the flywheel off of the 95 motor, and the starter off of the 95. Your old flywheel would make the engine out of balance, and you would run into starter problems. Flywheels and crankshafts changed is 1986 on Chevy 350's But like I said use the 95 flywheel, and starter and blot it in. The 95 wont have a place to bolt up a mechanical fuel pump, use a low pressure electric pump made for an engine with a carburetor. Generic fuel injection pumps put out too much pressure. Mount the fuel pump in the rear and down as low as possible. Use an HEI distributor, it just needs one wire to it, a hot wire that is hot when the ignition is on. If you want max power use a Holley 3310 carburetor, I have used them a lot on this engine. Edelbrock carbs will work too, the Holley will make more power. Be sure your intake matches the 95 heads. Beyond that it is just normal swap in stuff, figuring out what brackets to use, and so on. I would use all the 95 stuff in that area I could. I have swapped a lot of Chevy engines so I have been through this before. if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
