column wiring

i have a 1980 cj7. i am trying to wire the steering column and have no idea what each wire coming out of the column and what each pin on the ignition switch goes to. Is there a diagram that tells me this? I have none of the original wiring harness just whats coming out of the column..help!

Re: column wiring

You will find that Haynes is more complete than most of the others.
The book you want is 50020 (412), Jeep CJ, 49 thru 86, All models.

Re: column wiring

If for no other reason than I doesn't tell you that the '76/'77 has the internally regulated alternator on the v8 like the Chilton does.


I've replaced so many parts that my old Jeep has become my new Jeep.

Re: column wiring

You are just having a hard time getting that...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
<hr>
External Regulated Prestolite (RCA) Alternators '72 & '73 both I-6 and V-8
All had Delco Points ignitions.

Internally regulated Delco on '74 to '77 on the factory I-6 engines. These engines also had Prestolite ignitions.
(all I-6 from '74 to '90 had Delco Internal)

Externally regulated on the Motorcraft/Prestolite (AMC used both, both years) '74 & '75 factory equipped V-8 vehicles.
Externally regulated on the Motorcraft '76 & '77 factory equipped V-8 vehicles.
'74 to '77 V-8 all had Prestolite Ignitions.
<hr>
All engines went Internal Delco Alternators and Motorcraft/DuraSpark ignitions in '78 to '90.

I've never had to replace the alternator (or voltage regulator, if it was external) on a 4 cylinder from the years '74 to , so I don't know what the 4 cylinder had.

Re: column wiring

No TR, I'm having no problem with it, Chilton has the problem. When I responded to that post, my Chilton manual was lying right beside me. I looked and it shows one schematic for '76-'79 all with internal regulator for all engines. After your post saying external regulator, I went up and checked my Haynes. It showed what you said.

It's the Chilton Repair and Tune-up Guide Jeep CJ 1945 to 1981 page 191, and it's wrong.

Re: column wiring

Chilton's also has a mis-labeled wiring diagram (says 1980 instead of 81)...and less-than stellar instruction....boo
