1981 Jeep CJ7 V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual PLENTY miles
CJ7 -Chevy 350 It is professionally restored but don't trust wire colors - had to trace manually. Pretty sure the rest is all jeep oem on the column to the firewall.
Son removed starter to replace cracked solenoid w/o removing wires - now I have two bare 14g wires with unknown connection locations.
BATT POS is still connected
Green to ign sw (12v with Key start) "S" on SOL
Engine cranks well with key start with these attached. I understand that the R posts are unused with HEI.
Need help locating other two wires:
Red to HEI (12V with Key on)
Brown to rear of fuse panel then I lost path through firewall/fuseblock but their is continuity between red and brown with key on. Otherwise brown has no voltage - did not try with key in start because starter cranks with green wire on solenoid "S" already)
In attempts so far best I can do is get engine to start but not shut off with key. That was with RED on BATT POS. Later I found Red has 12V when disconnected with key on. Replaced coil fuse after making sparks on one of many attempts at guessing locations w/o thinking it through. Oops. Found continuity between brown/red with key on - dead short! Measured from brown at back of fuse panel to red at hei.
have the same problem?
