Re: Wiring the starter solenoid

HA it does mater what side goes where , I bought my 83 cj7 4.2 with the seller telling me the he repaced the selonid and that the starter switch is bad thats y I am starting it with a srew drive {jump the seloniod}I belived him until I replaced the switch and the strater got stuck while the engine was runnig Talk about kaoss, I didnt know what to do first ,The 15- 20 seconds to disconnect the battery ,it chewed up my starter gear, It wouldn't shut off at the key,just kept grinding away,thats when I look at the seleniod it was backwards and the power kept flowing though to the starter. IT mounts one way only!

have a cold one!
