I just went thru this on our 49 3100. I put just about everything from a
77GMC 1/2 ton under the 49, and I also used the steering column and
complete wiring harness. I have just the one big plug going thru the
firewall in nearly the same location it was in the 77 (left of column,
midway up the firewall)
If you lay the harness out on the floor it's pretty easy to figure out what
goes where, but I did pick up a Haynes book at the local parts store which
has several wiring diagrams with color codes in the back.
I don't know what the going rate is for a harness in a yard, but should be
less than the store bought new stuff. If you go that route try to get the
harness out yourself, as the yard folks are usually in a hurry and "cut"
rather than remove connectors etc.
