Manuals

I have a 1986 CJ-7. It had a body off rebuild, but they didn't really finish it. A lot of gauges and lights and horn are not working, and the engine compartment looks like some one threw up a spaghetti dinner. Wires all over. Is there a good manual that covers wiring diagrams, adjusting carbs. I see a Hemmings manual on Ebay.

Take every thing out and replace wiring harness yourself. If you try to fix what the PO did you may be chasing your tale for a while. I bought a Painless wiring harness and did myself, fairly easy.

I've seen the Painless wiring harness on different sites. I replaced the harnes on a Dodge M-37 I restored, but I had a very detailed manual and a wiring diagram. Does the Painless kit come with instructions?

The FSM for your year is the best repair book. Look online for one. The next would be a haynes type which does cover wiring with a diagram thats not as detailed.

I personally wont use a painless harness as they are far from painless much easier for me to build one specifically for what I need/want.

Yes the painless harness does come with instructions for several different applications. I didn't have much experience with wiring before so I did have to call there tech support which was very helpful and was able to complete the install.
