Unhappy no electrical

I just put a new 305 into my pu truck, I think I have everything hooked up properly, but I have no power at all. this is driving me nuts.No headlight,radio, ignition... nothing. got a new battery.
Pos to solenoid, Neg to block.

Broken fusible link or missing main ground.

It would be a collosal help to know what type and year of vehicle we are dealing with.

It's a 76 chev p/u, I took out a 400sb and put in this 305.
I have power to the solenoid but thats it.

Why on God's green earth you'd put a puny 305 in there is beyond me .

Check the fusible link coming off the starter and check for any breaks in the wires closely as well as any grounds you may have missed.

Talking fixed, thanx

Yup it was a bad ground at the soleniod! Thanx.
I put a 305 in because it will not overheat like a 400 will and it will be better on gas ( it costs over $70.00 to fill both tanks on this truck!)still a torqy engine too.Thanks again for the info.

Good deal.

Umm, the 305 won't net you that much better mileage and they are pigs in these era trucks .

Hey , I did'nt put my location on here. I'm in Washington state.
I don't know what the freight would be on an engine?
I'd probably want about 100.00 for it. I think it needs a new top end.
