1988 Holiday Rambler Chevy 454 Chevy ECM?

Class A - Carbureted. Does anyone know (or have a picture) of where the ECM connector is located or what it looks like. Also my check engine light does not work. I thought locating the ECM and tracing it back to the CEL might be the easiest way to find out where the wire is cut. And although cryptic, it might be nice to see the codes.

On the carb unit I don't think there is one. I have never seen one on mine.

From fading memory (a risky proposition) if the motorhome has an oxygen sensor in the exhaust, it must have an ECM to drive the carb's mixture control solenoid. It should also have electronic sensors for other things, like manifold pressure, etc. I don't think these were used on units without catalytic converters.

I have a 89 carbureted 454, no ecm, not cat. I think that would have came in the early 90's when fuel injection came on these

Unless it is a California unit there is no ECM or O2 sensor, I don't know what they did in California units There is no CEL on these.
