Yes it will work. Some of the wires aren't the right length, if I remember correctly but it does work. Its been a long, long time since I did that though. I can't remember all the details. I know the starter cable worked and distributor wire worked, I had it running, and I think the temp sensor worked.

the wiring of the 4 cyl or the 6 cyl will work on the v8
1st you need the wiring diagramme of both engine and studies it to
hnow it or color the ligne how represent the wire by it color

2- you need another wiring from a engine v8 it better but not
necessory
3-solder iron ,heat shurik,solder, acid paste for copper pipe and
label

4-you un rapp the wiring harness of the 4 cyl and label each
tip of the wire
5 you put it in the engine compartment and place wire by wire
were they go and shortend or add wire with the another wiring
until it fit the engine

6 remove the wiring ,solder it and seal it with heatshirk for trouble free operation, rapp it like it a factory wiring then reinstall
