Need help with 85 Cj7 Wiring, Ez-wiring kit!!

Hey folks, we just put in a whole new wiring harness in my friends 85 Cj7. We have completed the front and rear lights, dash wiring and column wiring, everything works fine so far. Now were on to the engine area. Were using the EZ-wiring kit.

Link to Instructions: http://www.clparts.com/pdfs/ez_wire_wm.pdf

The wires going into the engine area are:

Alternator Exciter-White
Alternator Power-Red
Oil sending-Blue
Coil Pos-Pink
Tach-Green
Temp-Light Green
AC-Grey
Elec Choke-red
Bat. Power-Red
Ign SW Start-Purple

So, we know where the electric choke, ac, temp, tach, and oil sending go. So were left with Alternator exciter, alternator power, Battery Power, ignition switch start and coil positive (the other side of coil positive goes to the ignition switch). Where should these go, considering we have to wire in the ignition control?

Also what the sequence of connecting the battery to alt to starter solenoid?

Basically, how should this all be wired.

Weve gone through and followed many diagrams and wiring schematics, but nothing seems to be working and we think were doing everything right, so any insight into this would help.


Thanks, -Rich-

Nevermind, figured it all out within 20 minutes of this post, got it running with no problems, didnt turn off at first, but that was an easy fix.
