This is where im at. I know that the other two ign wires go on the left, but which is where? I got it to crank, but it cranks when the is in the ON area and not the START area. i tried flipping the ign wires, no fix, then flipping the acc wire, still no fix.
Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

no I wish I had a good wiring diagram. The haynes manual says top right is ign to tach and bottom right says ign to splice "B". middle is ign to starter solenoid. top is ign to splice "A." and top left says ign to fuse panel and ign to voltmeter (+) terminal

no luck. It seems like he specializes in full size jeeps. all he had for a 74 was a parts manual

I don't really know what year you have since your profile is not filled out. If you Google your year of jeep for a wiring diagram, plenty of links will come up.

I played around with it. Im pretty sure that I have my switch wired right, but now the the 2 wires that plug into the alternator (alternator exciter and a jumper to the main alternator post) smoke when the key is in the on switch. Any reason why it would do this?

Actually it would be easier for you to go to offroaders.com under the tech section. I forgot that's where I found mine.
