Help identifying random things in engine bay...

So I'm trying to clean up the mess the previous owner left this YJ in.
Here are some random wires, hose, connectors, and maybe sensors that are not connected and I don't know what they are.
Any one know what they are?
Some of them might just be extra wires and stuff that I can get rid of, I just don't know..

Thanks

I think the last pic is your 4WD vacuum harness.

Third picture is the sensor that turns the 4wd light on.
The last picture is the vacuum lines that control the CAD (vacuum motor) that locks the front axle when you are in 4wd. Red line with the check valve is the source of vacuum. Blue line is a vent and should be open or have a filter. Other two should run down to the axle.

Do you have a posilok or solid front axle? If you do, then that stuff is extra and you can take it out.

The last pic is the vacuum lines. The red line is what plugs into the manifold, and the bit on the end is supposed to be on the blue line. It's the vacuum check line. The yellow lines should run down to the shift motor, then one line should run back up to the 4WD sensor (blue thing in the 3rd pic). The green line is what disengages the shift motor to disengage the axle.

I have the same plug in the 2nd pic just floating around too. I guess it was for AC?

Yes there is a vac disconnect on your YJ unless it has been modded with a TJ/XJ shaft.

Yeah they had the vacuum disconnect. That's what those lines are in the last pic.

In the fourth pic that loose wire on your coil is supposed to connect to the condenser (the little canister on the coil bracket) to prevent the ignition system from causing static on your radio.

****s all good, cleaned up the hoses and wiring and installed new starter and it starts and runs pretty nicely except the oil pressure gauge still doesn't work (just goes all the way as soon as it is turned on and stays there) need to look into that.
then steering shaft, e-brake, horn, oil pan gasket, and all fluids...and it will be ready for the winter.

Replace the oil pressure sending unit and you'll get a proper reading. Theyre cheap and fail often.
