I always use the Painless Performance wiring instructions, and they never fail.
Here is a link to the Chevy TBI download. All wires are the same color, so should work a treat

Click on "manual" and it will walk you through every needed connection.

Well not running but turning over. One of my mistakes was i didnt have the bulk head connector bolted in all the was so i wasent getting a connection.
I turned the key and the guages came to life. Then cranked it and it turns over. I dont have any vac of fuel lines hookd up yet..
Back when I removed the 4.3 I broke the starter and had to replace it. THere was a problem installing the started from the get go like it didnt fit correctly.
Now when I turn the starter it makes a terrible binding noise againt the flywheel but turns the motor over.
Removed the starter and activated it to make sure its fully working correctly. It is.
Looking closer at the starter teeth they look to not match the teeth on the flywheel like they are too big.
This explaines why I cant get the starter to mesh in and bolt on the way it should.
Just the edges of the starter teeth have marks on them like they are pushing the flywheel just enough to turn the motor over.
Im taking the starter back to AZ tomorrow and hope to get the correct one.
Overall it was a sucessful day being that the Jeep has somelife back in it.

Yah chevys had 2 different size flywheels with the corresponding starters, ever since the 1960's. One had 158-tooth flywheel, usually on small-blocks and the V6 the other (heavy-duty) had 163 teeth, usually on big-blocks and HO applications. Thing is that except for the teeth, they're the same and can get mixed up.

Are the ignition hot circuits hot in run AND start? I drove myself up the wall on a swap because of this one time.

I confirmed that I ended up buying the 9 tooth starter and need the 11 tooth one

Bingo. The 11-tooth one corresponds to the small-block and V6 flywheels. It doesn't take as much torque to turn those over, as compared to the big-block and HO applications.

11 tooth starters are hard to find

It maybe easier to start swapping some junkyard parts.
The "classic" starters (pre-1986) had 13 teeth IIRC those might work also and they're much easier to find. Off any pre-1986 small block or V6.

You might be able to make things a *lot* easier if you take a look at GM Performance Parts (factory official stuff)

Bought a 9 tooth starter but its redesigned and recomended by the auto parts store. It bolted up very easy but theres another problem.
I has zero function.
THe meter shows power going to the starter when the keys turned to run.
Im bring the starter to autozone to get it tested tomorrow. Just another roadblock

I'm beginning to think that a different parts store maybe a better idea. But I'm 90% sure you'd have better luck with a decent wrecking yard, the kind where they know what they're talking about. BTW, GM starters are fairly interchangable, you don't necessarily have to limit yourself to Chevy. Cadillac and Buick particularly come to mind if you have to go scrounging.
