This is my 1st post to the jeepforum.com, and I have been reading these threads for the last 4 months since I bought my CJ-7. So thank you in advance, many have helped me get through some questions.
I am at the point of wiring my ignition in my '84 CJ-7, and I have come across something I am confused about. Every forum, thread, etc that I have read mentions using the purple/ violet wire coming out of the ignition module and twisting it to the orange wire, which they both go to the distributor. I pulled the entire old wiring harness and emissions ECM out and have it for reference if needed. I cut the wires going from the distributor to the ECM with plans on running them to the ignition module. I have upgraded to a TFI coil and already have in place the adapter, cap and rotor for the Team Rush upgrade.
This is my question/concern. There is a 4 wire connector coming from the ignition module that has the orange, purple, green and black wires. My OEM wiring harness with the 4 wire female connection only has 3 wires coming from it. - The purple wire does not come out of that connection. It ran before I did the wiring harness swap, so what wires do I use at this point? Do I buy another 4 pin connector and run the purple/orange wires to the dist or what? Please note, there is not even a terminal in the OEM connector for the purple male connector to plug in to.
Any and all help/ advice/ wisdom and knowledge is GREATLY APPRECIATED.
