renix system swap into 90 yj HELP!!!

hey guys i know nobody loves when a new memeber just pops up and posts asking for something that they could search for but i honestly dont have the time. I have a buddy who did it already in his and was supposed to help me but he seems to have fallen off the wagon and has left me stranded. ive gotta get this thing done before the weekend b/c i am moving and have to get this jeep running and out of the garage. i swapped in an 89 4.0 into my 90 yj and pulled the harness that came with the motor and i have it mostly done. unfortunately i found some duct tape barried in the harness so somebody obviously got in there and did some hacking at the harness.

if anyone can send me a good link with pictures on splicing this harness in it would be greatly appreciated. im in pretty desperate need here and im not that great at wiring but ive got no other choice right now.

I'll give it a try but don't expect any miracles.

Is the engine swap complete?

88-90 should be close to the same set up IIRC but back then they were some iffy crap happening

Does it turn over at all?

You found an '89 4.0? must be a rare bird. lol

Seriously though not sure if I can help, but duct tape wrapped around metal "C" crimps was factory wiring at the time.
