Got the CJ started but can't shut it off!
It's been a ten month project, so wires have gotten crossed and I've forgotten where some thin go go surely.
I did a few upgrades:
1. Removed the old ignition system, dizzy and coil - went with a HEI for the AMC - the only connection required was a 12 volt on/off with the key/ignition.
2. Changed on the silenoid - probably my issue.
Right now, the wire to the starter is on one side (larger terminal) with the small blue wire on the smaller terminal. The battery cable + is on the other large terminal along with the wire to the alternator and the fuseable link to power the fuse box under the dash. The small red wire is on the smaller terminal next to it. With this set-up, it will power up the ignition and crank, but the engine will not turn off!!
If I swith the larger wires around to the opposite sides of the larger terminals on the silenoid, the starter continously engages.
Then the small purple wire is going to the oil sending unit and the lower passenger side of the block and a small purple wire with a stripe is going to the temperature unit mounted on the intake.
