wiring scale engines

Eight Ball Is there a good site that is geared toward modelers where you can find engine wiring diagrams? What sequence do you guys use in wiring an ignition or a fuel pump? where do small coolant and fuel hoses go? How do I make dipsticks? Am I nuts for wanting to add all of this stuff?

Just search for images and find some good ones of engines. I have over 10 of a Boss 429 and I still keep finding where different hoses go. But I still can get the main part of the engine wired and plumbed.

Best thing to do is figur out what motor you are doing.. GM, Dodge, Buick, Ford. before alot of this could be answered right. For fuel pump is it on the block or off the block there is differents. Extrenal pump runs in let and out let. Now each block is different from where the fuel lines run from the gas tank. Now for you answer on the Wiring diagram of the block again figur out what motor. and if you are using a stock style distibuter or a Mag. This has a lot to do with it also on how you bring the wiring to the block. Now for the Coolant hose's not to much there then two little hoses to worry about one form the upper part of the radiator and the lower one off the water pump to the bottom of the radiator.. Dipsticks again figur out what block and what time era it is.. Why i say this is because if you are say doing a 409 from the Impala kit and you put the dipstick on the right hand side you just made a 348ci motor out of this. Some of GM blocks came with the dipstick on either side the first GEN sb 350s had a plug in them and you could change them from one side to another. So did the BB at one time. lol. You are asking a lot in one post that we would need more info on the car make and motor you are doing.
