Re: TeamRush, check private mail, please

hey team rush question for ya, how come you don't run the blue(start wire to solinoid) to the white wire on the motor craft box. just looking at some prints i have it looked like that was what the white wire was for. that way it wouldn't have pwr on it all the time not that that would be a problem. just wondering

Re: TeamRush, check private mail, please

Because if you did that, when the key switch came back to 'Run', it would feed back through and activate the starter solenoid all the time the key was "On", and you would have the starter grinding...

Now that we are in the 21 century, you could do that if you added a diode... But most guys are wiring deficient, so I don't load them up with too much at once...
I love diodes, but there are a lot of guys here scared to use them... Or just don't understand how they work.

Camo_trash, is this what you are talking about?


I modeled this picture, many moons ago, from the factory 79 cj wiring diagram and currently works perfectly on my jeep and others as well.

My drawing is an adaptation of the original TR diagram (below), which is somewhat different than the one Aaron is presenting here.
Here is the original TR drawing from wayyyy back.

Re: TeamRush, check private mail, please

Well, I wondered how long it would be until that scabbed up diagram showed up....
I don't know who doctored that diagram, but they really ruined my original diagram with that scab.

The monkey that changed the diagram didn't know SQUAT about ignition wiring, or he would have seen his mistake right off.

This would explain the rash of over heating modules lately... We never had those problems when I was on the net in the beginning...


It is dead wrong. Wired like that, the starter solenoid is getting power to the 'Start' terminal any time the module gets power with the key switch in the 'Run' position with the older modules.
If you have one of the older modules, or an outdated design module the starter will try to crank anytime the key is in the run position.

Even with the later module you are still taking power away form the coil and module and grounding it through the starter solenoid.
Not to mention heating up the module by adding a direct ground to the power supply, even if it isn't enough left over to kick the starter solenoid.
That's all current your module and coil could be using for running your vehicle more efficiently...
DO NOT USE THAT SCABBED UP DIAGRAM...

<hr>

USE THIS DIAGRAM TO WIRE A PERMANENT MOTORCRAFT/ DURASPARK IGNITION.
There is a simplified version of this diagram coming on the TeamRush.com site in a few weeks...
