    Default 4.6 Stroker into 88 YJ Wiring HELP

    So I am dropping in a 4.6L Golen stoker in the YJ, I have everything in, no problem, but I often get confused while plugging appliances into household sockets, so I really need some help sorting out the harness (Off a 4.0), it also has a MSD ignition and I have no clue where to start, literally. I couldn't find a good writeup on wiring in this beast!

    I have both new and old harnesses and I assume that I have to splice the two together but I don't know where to start, if anyone can give me a good walk through it would be MUCH appreciated.

    I can't walk u thru it via PC but if I was there I could show ya. Find someone one here who is in SD area & an aircraft tweet. It easier since you have both harnesses. May not get a lot of responses from some of the regulars as they seam 2 b out playing in the dirt this weekend (Camp MJ). Hopefully someone will post up with the easy skinny on this for ya. Good luck!

    I work on aircraft, but again I have trouble using household outlets! My roomate is an AE but he's been useless to far.

    Ok I'm am completely confused on this, I think the Jeep has been re-wired at some point, so no colors or wiring diagrams coincide, can someone who has done a swap take pictures of where they spliced their wires at?

    I got the fuel system working, fire to the coil, but now when I hit the ignition the starter spins hard, but doesn't engage. Any Ideas? I have tried two different good starters so I know it's not a problem with the starter. Also the first starter I tried with a dieing battery worked fine, but once I installed a good strong battery this started happening.

    soulds like your starter solinoid is not energized. I'm all for do it yourself but if ya get way in over your head you may want to check out painless wiring ready made full harnesses
