CJ Starter w/ Solenoid ?

Is there a Starter that will fit a 1983 CJ 7 w/ a T5 Manuel trans that has the solenoid built on the starter ?

I am building a hybrid- A wrangler tub,wiring harness,automatic steering column put on a 1983 CJ 7 frame... Motor is a new 258cu Wrangler motor...

The starter from my wrangler is much smaller then the CJ starter.. I need a heavy duty CJ starter w/ a solenoid built on if possible?

Thanks for any help! AC

starter must match the flywheel.. Late CJ and 87 YJ used flywheel J3240094 and the CJ style starter. 88-90 YJ used flywheel 33002672 and the YJ style starter. there is a 'throw' depth difference in the starters.

Just do what I did, move the solenoid. I put it below the battery tray. No more wires going all the way up the fender and back. Much cleaner.


Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Afternoon, Thank you for reply. Yeah Im doing this wiring super clean... my CJ was a disaster.

I understand what you are saying the throws are two different depths.And thats my problem. On the wrangler motor that I just installed, I put the CJ flywheel & clutch on this new motor. The wiring is the wrangler wiring.

Wrangler starter has a built on solenoid, (which I am looking for a wrangler style starter but needs to be large like the CJ starter w/ the throw depth & beast ness)

My options are to try to wire up old style solenoid w/ original CJ starter which I dont know what the wiring would be.

Or to find a starter with the right throw depth but would have to have a solenoid built on it like the wrangler starter & I would use the pre exsiting wrangler wiring & firewall starter solenoid. ..

Hope this makes sense. Thank you again for reply & any suggestions. AC

Be careful with the flywheels. All AMC motors have a specific flywheel for each CID. I'm not sure the 258 flywheel is balanced correctly for the 4.0
