Engine wiring help needed, TR???

I have been attempting to rewire my '77 CJ-7 for a while now. It's a partially completed project vehicle that I dropped my drivetrain into. Here's what I have: AMC 304, w/TFI ignition upgrade (all Ford Duraspark parts), it has an MSD 6 ignition module w/an ATC Fuse ground panel and an 50 amp fuse block (these parts came w/the project vehicle), also a full Painless Wiring replacement harness. I have a pile of repair manuals, including FSM, downloaded MSD and Painless instructions and diagrams and all of the info from Team Rushes Duraspark ignition upgrade. I have pieced together what I could but if someone can help with mating these systems together (MSD Ignition, Painless harness, and Duraspark ignition) I would be eternally grateful. Oh, it's also got the externally regulated Motorcraft alternator (which I think I have hooked up correctly). Thanks to all.

Re: Engine wiring help needed, TR???

Hey, sorry I can't keep up w/my own posts. Darn ISP keeps kicking me out. Anyway, I guess I just need more knowledge on wiring/electical stuff in general. Gman, does the Painless harness you used have wires that are labeled right on the insulation the entire length of the wire? Because the harness I have only has label tapes on the wires, which leads me to believe it may not be a Painless kit.
