Default Wiring and Timing 95 xe 4wd with 97 motor

Hey all,

I need to know what to do about the mismatched connections on the throttle body/distributor, and which parts exactly have to be changed to make this work.
Iíve heard timing cover and distributor but even if you change that the connections arenít right. Can someone tell me?

Sorry for being slightly vague as I donít have the truck here yet, I know the previous owner cut one plug somewhere to make at least one plug connect and match but I believe he has one hanging still and a 97 timing cover.

Let me know what I need to do pleaaaaase!!

As mentioned in other places you'll need the 1995 distributor and timing cover to make it work. And the ignition coil...the 96-97 models have the coil integrated into the distributor while the older ones have the coil above the driver side wheel well. You can still buy those new but may need to hit up the junkyard for the mounting bracket if it has been removed. You may need to swap the connector from the '95 back in to make it work, assuming the truck still has the factory wiring harness. There are a couple different ways to do it, either cut and solder/heatshrink or carefully unpin the connector and re-pin the original one. Which connector in the throttle body specifically? Pics are much appreciated when you are able to take them.

Like SBJ said, make sure you get the parts that are proper for the 95 on there. The 97 is OBD2, 95 is not so sensors, brackets and such may be different.

Ok. I have all parts my truck is a 95 and I kept everything. Iím trying to figure out if I put the 95 intake on will it eliminate that swirl control port that I have no plug for?

The 90-95 intakes also have a swirl control valve. It's vacuum-controlled and the little solenoid for it lives underneath the manifold. The rest of the swap should be pretty much plug and play.
