CJ5 Engine Wiring Harness

Does anyone know where I can buy an Engine Bay wiring harness for a 1980 C5J? I see the complete kits, but I only need the engine compartment. If you can't buy one, does anyone know where I can but a large wiring diagram, one that I can actually read?

Thanks

You can downlad the wiring diagram here and go to Staples or something like that and print it up to any size you want.

But generally the basic stuff is the same. Just routed differently.

Thanks guys for your help. This wiring is a mess and if it wasn't so expensive, I think I would just buy the complete wiring harness. I may have to just break down and do that.

A lot of Jeeps are like that. I start by identifying what is original and take out everything else, which usually means taking off conduit and tape from the wires so I can see it. Then trace and fix each circuit, finally binding up the cables with electrical tape into a rough harness and then enveloping in flexible conduit so that it looks neat and rats cannot eat it.
