Post radio

i recently bought an 82 cj7 from a guy
it allready had the glass body and a 350 under the hood.
only problem was that about a month later the steering shaft fell right off.
pulled it out to find that he had everything severely rigged.
so i pulled a new column and shaft off a cj at a junkyard and it worked out fine except not all the electrical connections fit the same. everything worked beutifully for a day then a connection wiggled lose and when i put it back the radio wasnt working tried following wires and cheked fuses but everthing looks good.
any one know anything??

AH, the ever-popular Jeep Wiring Problem.

Personally, I would hook the radio up to a "constant-power" terminal in your fusebox and bypass the problem. It will save a lot of headaches. Seriously. If you have glass fuses, just use a flat tab connector on the end of the power wire and slip it between the metal fuse and and the clip on a constant power side of one of your fuses.
