It's ALIVE!!! Last night was very intersesting. Found problems yet found loads of satisfaction. First of all, I was using I think it was JeepHammer's wiring schematic from some other thread on the ignition wiring...basically how to wire up the starting solenoid, battery, coil, & alternator and in the schematic, it indicated you had to use a diode or resistor on terminal #1 (the "excite" terminal) on the alternator.
Well.....i didn't do that and I think I found out why i should. Once I got the engine running, that wire was glowin red...then I tried to shut the engine off & it kept running. Additionally, the computer fried. I had a backup computer so I unplugged the alternator & plugged in the new computer & it runs fine!
Can anybody tell me what exactly was happening there?
Also, tied into the coil cap is a wire that is supposed to go to the "capacitor jumper".....i don't know what to do with this wire...can somebody help?
Last question, the hose that goes to the advance on the distributor...where does it go?
New air cleaner is goin to require a longer bolt....
New bolt welded on:
Painless wiring is jealous of this!!!
You can see that "capacitor jumper" wire in this picture...I don't know where it goes?
Don't have the looms installed yet, but you get the idea:
Still need to finish the paint job & paint the grill:
Seats installed...still need to drill holes & install seat belts:
