    Default 1976 CJ5 wirning request

    The following attachment is exactly what I have for my 1976 CJ5. The bottom diagram. I got rid of the original wiring. I did keep the ignition module. I need to know how to wire the Jeep. I am just putting headlights on it and break lights/running lights. Can someone show me how to place the battery,start push button,kill switch, and alternator into this wiring diagram. Thank you. GO PENS!!!

    Here is a link to earlycj5.com.

    The wiring diagram is for an early F head CJ5. It is very simple and should answer the needs stated above.
    [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Owner/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.jpg[/IMG]If you don't already have one, use a GM internally regulated alternator such as the 10SI. They are a dime a dozen and are simple to install. I believe Jeep switched to them in 76, however you never know what folks are running.

    The third diagram on the bottom of the page shows how to wire it. The #2 wire can simply be jumped to the battery post on the back of the alternator. The system requires the exciter wire (1) coming from the ignition to have a resistor. this is accomplished by using the existing dash light wire. You will need to use the existing alternator light and socket, as these do not ground the same as a typical light. A kill switch will need to be installed on the power wire going to the ignition module. You can install a starter button by wiring it from a power source to the S terminal of the solenoid.
    The small module on the starter in the V6 diagram is a solenoid. Set up your battery, power feed, and alternator to one side of your existing unit on the fenderwell. The opposite stud goes to your starter with the S post described above. Be sure to install a basic fuse block. You can scrounge one from a junk yard or find one new at boat shops, NAPA, etc...
    gotta go, hope this helps,
