Alrighty got the wiring 95% done not a lot left.it looks 100x better lots of wires came out.thankfully the cummins can only run on one wire haha oh and I had some problem finding my starter S terminal wire.finally found it. Here's where it is I believe this is the starter solenoid.

That little box you have there, that mounts on the passenger side firewall, is the starter relay. I believe that style was used on '87-'90 YJ's.

One thing I wish I would have done was bought a donor truck.some guys almost break even after they scrap the bread truck.plus there's some odds and ends you my need for a build.really wish I would have done that but to late now..then again if you find a cheap 4bt with everything with it jump on that.I didn't have a starter,backing plate,clutch,throw out bearing,flywheel,dip stick,pressure plate,bolts for the clutch and a few other stuff when I bought my 4bt,all that was a pain in the as$ to find at a good price,that's why I wish I would have bought a donor truck to steal off of.
