I'm able to remove the smog parts and get started on sorting out the wiring. I'll have to admit I was worried about cutting up the wiring, kinda like when you were a kid the first time you jumped off the cliffs at the local lake, thinking other people have done it, so I'm sure everything is going to be ok.
The Howell instructions were pretty detailed, but, not for my year of jeep. I did take the time to read them about 8 times, and also the countless other blogs on installing the Howell tbi and looked real close at the Haynes electrical portion of my book before starting to cut any wires. To sum it up, I read and looked at just about everything I could find about installing the Howell TBI and my year of jeep I could before I started. I also keep a note pad for taking notes handy. I took it in stages: First... I took all the wires out of the conduits. Second.. if it was attached to any type smog part it was removed. Third.. If it was attached to the starter solenoid, starter, distributor, alternator, transfer case, ignition coil, oil pressure sender or if I wasn't quite sure about it, I left it alone.
