Peeping one tank for now. I only picked this one because it still has the OE pump from 87 in it. I'm going to set it up and use it beside the run stand that I will hopefully be able to weld up next week. I picked up a job to repair fork seals on a Kawasaki KlR and that will fund the ECM flash and a few other small things.
Anyone out there know the answer to my previous question about the alternator wiring ?

Just got this in the mail today. It looks like I'm gonna be in business! The best part is the kick down tab is already on the throttle body... Got new IAC and TPS. They also included caps head screws for sensors, cable bracket,  and fuel rail! I like it plus the Allen wrenches are in the bag.

I got the base done for the run stand. I wanted it mobile so I but wheels that were originally ment for a 2000lb tool chest. I'm sure they can handle a full assembled engine. I painted white to protect the welds mostly because the angle iron ig galvanized steel.  Next will be mocking the motor over it and making mounts that will fit both engines. 
Still haven't figured out what the engine on wire from the alternator is for...oopen to input.

Nice idea for a run stand. I'm sorry I can't help with the wiring thing. Wish I could.

So this is going to be the !ounts. I plan on boxing the plates in either on top or in the middle of the mount. I can't seem to find my other mount which aucks but I guess I will just go by a junkyard and pull another one when I get the time. I'm gonna weld the mounts together and possibly to the base tomorrow and or Tuesday.

One mount almost done.  This shows why I keep stuff. I just gotta find one more engine side of the old style SBC mount. Plan on fabing up the other one tomorrow.

Went to a local Metal salvage yard and found some goodies. A motor mount which is lower than the one I could fins in my shed but that's because this one is from a truck and the other is from a 1995 van. No big deal I will just cut the old one down and drill knew holes. I also picked up a tps and IAC pigtail all for free just a little bit of my time to pull it.
Also got this from someone's trash pile. I plan on using the tank for my prelube tank prior to running the engine on the stand.

On the left is a mount from a 90's pickup. On the right is from a 95 express van. So I modifies the one from the van.

And next is first mockup...

 I also soldered I'm the IAC and TPS pigtails from the salvage yard. Harness isn't wrapped yet because I'm not making that mistake until I lay it out in the truck. But is should be good to go as soon as I finish the run stand.
