Skipper yes you have the TPS and Idle Air controller hooked up and everything on the engine looks like its hooked up.
Skipper I'm assuming that you have heard of the kiss theory. (Keep it simple stupid)
For you I've come up with the kisses theory. Keep it super simple especially for Southerners,

Now you know bill has kissed you a lot I on the other hand am going to make this very easy for you to do.

First mount your ECM.
Two plug in your loom into your ECM.
Three reconnect your diagnostic connector and mounted in the cab some place You will need this later.
Four tape or wire tie the ECM loom wires every six or so inches from the ECM to the first point where the wires start to branch out.

This will get rid of a lot of wires that are in the way currently and you will find that you have a few connections left over. We will address these after everything else is been done.

In the meantime don't worry about all the technical aspects we are just trying to get the bulk of the wiring out of the way.

I had a fabulously enlightening conversation with George, aka The Professor, aka Holy Makra, early this morning. Which in itself is surprising, cause you know this ol farmboy gets up early, and The Professor needs his beauty sleep. I mean... he really needs it! But, he did call me, and some of my amassing density diffused with the radiance of our soggily rising sun.

So I ran out to a couple places and bought some Jeep ammo to combat the problems I have been dealing with. Namely, those unseen things that make a Jeep change during the night! I bought a hand tubing bender to bend the SS XJ fuel line. I bought a different fuel filter to install after the fuel pump. I bought a new pressure regulator ($60 freakin dollars... holy makra!) Some zipties, some sheet metal screws (cause I realy like em), a new soldering gun (because my old Craftsman makes me tired when I hold it up for a long period of time), some 3/16X3" bolts (to mount the ECM on the cool, custom bracket made by Clay), 10' of 5/16 injector line and... and... dad-gum... it's raining again!

Wifey and kids gone. Guess I'll watch Conan. Wow! Did my priorities just change, or what!?

Thank you, George.

Guess I need a solder lesson... the solder is not melting into the wire. I have a hefty Craftsman that will melt the wire casing, and I just bought this smaller Weller (130A). Using the 1/4" spade tip, I can heat the wire until the solder melts, but it is not going into the wire mass. I stripped the wire... it's new and shiny. I moderately twisted the ends together - inline- and I placed the gun tip in the middle of the splice. I hold the solder at one end away from the tip. I wriggle it around and it finally melts. But it doesn't flow into the wires. It just blobs up and ends up on my work surface. I have tried wood and metal work surfaces. What am I doing wrong?

I want to know because I suck at soldering, even with the expert Andy coaching me along!

Remember skippers old signature if you can't fix it with a hammer you got anelectrical problem! While he was trying to fuse two pieces of copper wire with a hammer.

Soldering is very simple 243 all you need is a soldering iron some rosin core solder. If you are using a new soldering iron or tip you will need to sand the tip till its shiny. Heat up the soldering iron and touch the solder to the tip. It should flow around the tip and up the tip a bit. This is called tinning the tip.

Now all you need to do this strip both ends of the wire about half an inch. Twist the wires together now lightly touch the joint with the tip of the soldering iron that has been tinned.The tip of the soldering iron will have a coating of molten solder on it as the wire heats up in this will only take a few seconds you will see the solder starting to wick up into the wires. You may elect to add a little more solder to the joint you can do this by either touching the solder to the tip or to the wires itself.

When the soldering is done that joint itself should be shiny without any access solder on it. I tried to upload a picture of different solder joints but the forum wont let me do it.
