    Took this engine apart for rebuild 6 months ago and can't for the life of me remember where on the block this wire loom was located on my 78 malibu 305 block. If I remember right it came off the driver side but I may be wrong. I'm attempting to make this rebuild look as stock as I can.

    It should hang vertically. Here is a pic from my 79 shop manual. Not the greatest but it gets the point across.
