    Trying to figure how you were doing a "product review" on a 1976 cj5?

    If no one responds to you - I'll dig thru my boxes. I know I have a schematic for it some where.

    You only need what you have there. Minus the dotted jumper wire. The starter solenoid only runs power through it when your starting the engine. The incoming power wire lug will have another set of 10 ga power wires the bolt to that lug and they run off into the wiring harness, IIRC one goes to the Alt and the other to the fuse pannel. The Hanes manual accually has real good CJ wiring diagrahams. (yeah I know most the time they don't. It must be the Hanes though, chiltons sux) I have fixed a lot of issues with old CJ's using them.
    I give you a word of caution. Use a quality push button starter switch (made in USA if you can find one!) and put a ARMing switch in front of that. That way you have to power the starter switch and it cannot inguage the starter accidently. I used a POS push button switch from advance auto to bypass my worn out $300 neutral safety switch (in a XJ). Needless to say the junk push button remained enguaged when I left go of the button and the button was out. This caused the starter to take out the flex plate and itself. This cost me more time and $$ than it would have cost to fix the NSS, the kicker is I cleaned it and repositioned the NSS an it worked. I now have a quality switch still installed as a back up should the NSS give me fits again.
