1980 bulkhead connector picture

Hope this helps someone. I traced each wire and then matched number from bulk head connector.

Must be an Early 80. Looks the same as the 79 Bulkhead connector






I thought the 80 had more connectors

^^ That's what I'm thinking. When I started rewiring it did not match the 80-83 diagram. I haven't checked the VIN to see when it was made. Note the picture I posted does not have "E" or "F". Also 1980 was another transitional year where AMC made some changes to include the Dana 300 that is different internally than the later Danas.

so why did you post it, labeled incorrectly, if you knew it wasn't for an 80?

really screws up google searches, which is why I'm here. A google search for a 1981 connector.

This help? 1980 to 1986 Bulkhead connector

There were only two types used from 76 to 86
Must be one or the other.

Looks like the one in both of my 1980 CJs as well as the diagrams in theFSM.

John, maybe you can explain why both my 80ís have the same connector as the OP posted but you are showing a much larger one.

Not sure if it would make a difference or not, but my 7 is a 258 rig and my 5 was originally a four banger. Plus, mine matching the FSM. Is it possible the larger connector was put in late 1980 units?

That's why I was wondering it it was an early 1980 make.
Mid 1979 they made some major changes to the wiring harness.
It's tricky to get the right parts for a 79 CJ.
I was thinking they may have continued to use the 79 parts into early 1980.

You have a 1980 Schematic out of the FSM?
I only have one that shows the bulkhead connector and I don't think it's out of a FSM.

If you can, post it up here as that will clear up a lot of mystery.

kinda.

The 'upshift' light is not a thing on CJs, I don't believe. YJ's have it. That connector is used for a main power wire on other CJ diagrams I've seen.

For your reading pleasure. Came from a 1980 Jeep Factory Service Manual. Three page foldout at the back of the book. There is a second set in there for the Cherokees and other FSJ's.

I cut out the V8 portion from the picture to avoid confusion on my part since I have a 258 in my 7, but if anyone needs it I can post it. Part of the problem is that it bridges what I call Sheet 1 and Sheet 2.

Upshift was on the CJ models but only on 4cyl models. That is a power wire on the 6cyl models but not the main power wire which is a 10 gauge wire in spot EY.
