i think what i did on mine, was trace the wire from the ignition switch itself, tha twent to the starter. then put that onto the small connector on the chevy starter.
the big connector will goto the battery.
i dont "think" i have any other wires from the jeep on there. there was 1 wire from the painless harness that went to the starter, but that was it.
so i guess yes, just cut the neutral wire and give it a shot!

I had to bypass the stock starter circuit, the Chevy V8 starter would overload something in the stock jeep wiring and if I cranked it longer then a second I wouldn't be able to crank it again for a half hour or so, I was always jumping the starter with a screwdriver until I bypassed it.

Hidden 12V switch on the Distributor, and a Starter button under the dash. All you need is 12V to the dizzy and momentary 12V to the starter solenoid when you want to start it to run the engine. (other then the battery cable attached to the starter)

Kinda hack, but no one knows how to start my jeep and that is nice.

I left the factory wiring in place though because 90% of the time it starts right away, I just have to flip the dizzy switch.

The switch on the left is the electric fan, black pushbutton is the starter.

This is going to be my last resort, so bottom line is you ran a wire from battery to distributor with a switch to cut power. then ran cable from battery to big post on starter, and wired from one post to the other (on starter) with a switch for starting. correct? what gauge wire did you use for the starter? dist?
Thanks!

Yep, I have a 12AWG (IIRC) wire from the battery or fuse box (I don't recall) to a switch in cab that goes to the dizzy.

The push button switch also is 12awg (IIRC) and goes from the fuse box to the push button to the small post on the starter.

The battery cable goes from the large starter post to the battery.

thanks martin!!! i had them hooked up like that at least 7 times yesterday..... all a no go..... got to picking around at it today..... realized when a friend and i were pulling the 4 cyl, i asked him to unplug sensors and stuff..... well he unplugged EVERYTHING..... hooked a big plug back together and voila!!! cranks with the key!!! definitely shooting for firing up this weekend!!

list of things remaining:
exhaust
trans cooler
electric fan switch
modifying skid to accept trans mount
fill anti-freeze
fill trans
wire fuel pump
mount power steering pump
have alternator converted to a 1-wire setup
belts


i think thats it!! we'll see how it goes!

yeah it will....
i started mine, and drove it down to the exhaust shop with only @6" of downpipe coming out of the manifolds....
only reason it had that was to protect the wiring etc...... sounded obnoxious to me, but some liked it i was told....

another question.... trying to decide on what to do for fuel delivery..... my two options are:
stock jeep fuel pump with a regulator..... will it go that low?

or a new low pressure pump.
opinions?

i used a chevy s10 fuel pump in my yj tank. it fits, just......
a good swap in my mind, is where the donor motor still thinks it is in the donor vehicle, so try to use as much of the chevy stuff as possible. as an added bonus, you can get chevy parts anywhere!
