WJ seats to a ZJ help

Hey guys I recently got a pair of black WJ leather seats for my ZJ and I was just wondering if anyone has any advice.

I was going to bolt them to the ZJ tracks and make the slide manual. But this leaves me with the power recliner, how would I custom rig a switch for this? The reclining motor is on the seats but I have no plugs or anything for it. There's just one port of many that looks like the power. Can I just put 12V to it and see if it moves?

Is there a way to move it manually?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

Don't your WJ seats have the switches attached to them ?

No the guy I bought them from kept the harness and all the switches. All I need to know is if the motor works by swapping the polarities, I just don't want to run 12V through it and have something bad happen.

Look at the motor, how many wires on it ? I would guess 3 wires, one ground and one +12 volts for each direction. 2 monetary switches or one 3 way momentary switch would work. I see these switches on retired conversion vans at the junkyard all the time.
