Where are you sourcing your exhaust parts? I can't seem to find the flared collector tube that connects to the manifold.

i still have the jeep starter wires going to the chevy starter, works just fine!
a lot easier than running all new wires IMO.
as far as how to do it, i just used the existing wires that went to the jeep starter, and connected them to the chevy......maybe 15 minutes?
shoot me a pm if you need anything specific!

Its the same. The big wire is power and the little wire goes to the selonoid. The starter should have a S and an R on the selonoid. This means start and run.

ok..... my chevy starter has 2 studs, 1 big and 1 small. the original big red wire straight from the + terminal on the battery goes to the big stud. correct?

then i had 3 small wires on the jeep starter..... they go together?? one runs up the harness to a connecter, the other 2 wires go into the same little connector at the starter. one wire goes up the harness (i think to the alternator) then the other goes back to the plug that was on the side of the AX-5 i took out..... possibly a neutral safety switch?? if it is, it never worked anyways. sorry if i sound like a , but like i said..... electrical ain't my thing!

yeppers, dump the neutral safety switch, and wire it exactly as the jeep starter was wired. i dont think i have a connector going from the starter to the alt though, but i am getting old i guess.....and it was last year for gods sake!
