Im starting to understand what each wire coming off of the solenoid do. Tomorrow, I will look deeper into it. 5 and 6 could be switched. I do not know. Will look into it tomorrow. If I jump between "A" and "C", what voltage should I have on "D" and/or "B"?
I enjoyed looking at the album you emailed me. If you have more, send them on over. Defiantly interesting.
Thanks for everything so far and everything in the future,
What part of the US are you located in?

DOES CLICKING ON MY NAME/AVATAR DO ANYTHING?
IF YOU ARE HOOKED UP "MY WAY", NOT MY WIRE DIAGRAM WAY
JUMP BETWEEN "A" AND "C", VOLTAGE?
IF ALL WIRES CONNECTED---TOUCH "A" TO "C" WITH WIRE OR SCREWDRIVER ACTIVATES SOLENOID (TURNS STARTER!)
"A" TO GROUND BATTERY VOLTAGE (12 V)
"C" TO GROUND----NUTHIN'!
"B" TO GRD----NUTHIN'
"D" TO GRD----NUTHIN'
A>C = "B" TO GRD. AND."D" TO GRDBOTH WILL HAVE BATTERY VOLTAGE (12 V)
JUST GET ONE ALBUM? WHICH ONE?
0200 HERE--IN MORN!

I bypassed the ignition and installed a momentarily push button switch. When I hit the button, the fan in the front of the jeep starts to spend. Where do I go from here?

I got my 7 volts to the coil! Poured some gas in the carb and it started! Quickly burned up the gas in the carb then died. But we're in business! Wooohoooooo!

Is there a way that I could install a kill switch? The engine stays running until it burns the gas in the carb. The other day I had good flow to the fuel filter so I think Im getting good gas. But I want to be able to shut off the jeep. Any suggestions?

EXPLAIN FAN---LOST ME?---FAN IS NORMALLY MECHANICAL FROM WATER PUMP (LESS HEARTACHES) SOME DINGLE. BERRY PUT AN ELECTRIC ONE ON?
GOOD DEAL ON COMBUSTION!
MAKE SURE YOU GOT COOLANT AND OIL BEFORE EXTENDED RUNNING---IF FAN/ TEMP IS STILL AN ISSUE---SHUT IT DOWN AFTER YOU ACHIEVE OPERATING TEMP, AND IT WANTS TO OVER HEAT
JU GET THE 12V BOOST FROM "I" WHEN IT WAS TURNING OVER?
DETAILED LIST OF WHAT STILL NEEDS FIXIN' AND TUNING
STILL HERE FOR YOU!
HOW MANY ALBUMS JU GET?

Ignore the comment about the fan.I sent that question before I decided to pour gas in the carb. I'm running up to discount to grab some new cable terminals to re attach the cable from the battery to "d" I think. (Output side on solenoid).
I did get my 12v boost when turning over.

KEY IN "OFF" POSITION WON'T DO IT?
IF NOT, SOMEHOW YOU ARE PERMANENTLY GETTING 12V FROM BATT/ ALTERNATOR TO THE COIL'S FEED. FIND THAT. DISCONNECT/ INSTALL SWITCH THERE
WIRE DIAGRAMS I SENT SHOULD SHOW YOU HOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE---KEEP IT NEAR THAT WAY AS YOU CAN (LESS CONFUSING)
IF YOUR KEY DOES WORK--YOU CAN BY-PASS IT UNDER THE HOOD (FOR PLAYING AROUND), LIKE THISKEY OFF (IN NEUTRAL, CHOCKED) POSITIVE BATTERY TO POSITIVE COIL (A JUMPER WIRE). START USING REMOTE
THIS METHOD WORKS, TILL YOU DISCONNECT IT (KEY IS OFF, NO BEARING ON THIS)
THIS DOES NOT NEED TO BE PERMANENT, VOLTAGE IS 12 (OK FOR NOW), WHEN YOU ARE DONE PLAYIN', IT NEEDS TO BE REDUCED, VIA THE RESISTANCE WIRE (ON THE WAY FROM "KEY ON", THE ORIGINAL SET UP) CONSTANT LOWER VOLTAGE KEEPS FROM MESSING UP THE IGN MODULE
